Since the overturning of Roe v. Wade, individual states have made moves to not only end legal abortion, but also to limit how residents might seek abortion services elsewhere. One state bill would outlaw websites that offer information on how to get an abortion. Another is debating a bill that would make it a crime to travel out-of-state to get an abortion. Meanwhile, states where abortion is legal are expecting an increase in demand for their services.
