Texas Finds New Ways to Criminalize Abortion, Targeting People Who Travel for the Procedure

HeadlineSep 07, 2023

Here in the U.S., anti-abortion crusaders are pushing new measures to make abortion access even more challenging. Texas cities and counties are passing new laws that criminalize driving through them to get to an abortion provider. New data shows abortions increased in the first half of the year in states that still allow the procedure. Those states have been absorbing patients forced to travel from places where abortions were banned following the overturning of Roe v. Wade last summer.
