7 Shocking Stats About Where America Stands on Abortion

Alabama has become the latest US state that restricts abortions. A bill has been passed that outlaws the procedure in almost all cases. Even the cases that involve rape or incest.

Men dominate Alabama’s 35-seat Senate, and none of the four female senators backed the ban. Eventually, Alabama’s Republican governor Kay Ivey signed the ban.

But this is not the end yet. Sixteen other states are seeking to impose new abortion bans. At the beginning of this year, the Supreme Court blocked the implementation of new abortion bans in Louisiana. However, the case is due for review later this year.

Of course, there were a whole lot of activists too. And the Democrats were trying to stop the controversial bill. However, this only heated everything in the Senate.

So, considering the severeness of the situation and how controversial things are getting, we decided to use the data gathered through TruePublic to show what people really think about abortion.
