Texas State Abortion Rate Decreases 13% Since Implementation of Restrictive Law

Posted: July 24, 2014

A new paper from The Texas Policy Evaluation Project demonstrates a 13% decline in the abortion rate in Texas and a sharp reduction in medical abortion since House Bill 2 (HB2) went into effect in November 2013.  The law includes provisions restricting medical abortion, banning most procedures after 20 weeks post-fertilization and requiring physicians to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.
