Contributing sentiments towards policy:

50% : In these states, abortion is protected either by state law, or through the state constitution.
47% : "The authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives."
45% : Since the states could not, per Roe v Wade, interfere with the privacy of a woman seeking abortion, these laws found a workaround by essentially turning citizens in abortion vigilantes, and offering up to $10,000 to anyone who sues abortion providers or those assisting with an abortion, including by driving a woman to meet a provider.
44% : "The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion," reads the decision's summary (pdf).
44% : As of now, and for the foreseeable future, regulating abortion becomes a state matter, which means the country is now more or less divided along partisan lines.
44% : States where the majority of lawmakers are Democrats will maintain access to abortion, while those where the majority is Republican (with a few exceptions) will ban it -- or try to.
44% : In states such as California, New York, and Connecticut, recently passed laws further strengthening access to abortion, by providing state funds to pay for the procedure and offering services to patients traveling from states banning abortion.
38% : Roe v Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the US, is no longer law of the land.
38% : Incest and rape, which are traditionally accepted as reasons to seek abortion even where laws are more restrictive, are often not included as exception, nor are severe fetal abnormalities, which are only accepted as exceptions to the abortion bans of Arkansas, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
34% : The overwhelming majority of these states now ban abortion at conception, and most of them will allow an exception only for severe risk to the mother's life.
33% : Within the next few weeks, states will fall into one of three groups:Although abortion is still protected by the US constitution, it is de facto illegal in Texas and Oklahoma.
