53% :Two weeks after the reversal of Roe, President Biden signed an executive order to protect access to reproductive health care services, improve public education, and ensure that pregnant people receive the emergency medical care afforded to them under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA).
50% : Through the website Abortion on Demand (, for example, clinicians prescribe medications to patients who are within nine weeks of pregnancy and ages 18 and older.
49% : This type of abortion is FDA sanctioned for up to 10 weeks of gestational age but is used safely off label later (the World Health Organization recommends its use until 12 weeks).

35% : "And, because pregnancy complications are riskier than abortion, I am concerned that recent initiatives to restrict abortion access could lead to even more deaths of Black women, worsening the disparity.
32% : Another five states -- Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina, Utah, and Florida -- have banned abortion at six, 15, 18, or 20 weeks.
32% : This would equate abortion with crimes such as attempted capital murder, aggravated sexual assault, and aggravated kidnapping, which carry sentences of five to 99 years or life in prison.
