A Quarter Of America Has BANNED THIS In Just A Matter Of Days
(TheRedWire.com) – Ahead of the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade on Friday, June 24, numerous states passed trigger laws outlawing the controversial procedure once the Supreme Court made its decision public. Within 72 hours of the court decision, almost 25% of the states activated their trigger laws. All of them are GOP-led, and others are moving to pass new laws that restrict abortion or ban it outright.
So, what states have moved to control or eliminate abortion?
Bans making abortion illegal went into effect immediately in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Trigger bans go into effect soon in Idaho, Mississippi, North Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and Wyoming.
Additionally, six-week bans are in effect in Iowa, Georgia, and South Carolina.

Other Republican-led states are preparing to consider making abortion either outright illegal or highly restricted. Analysts expect that over the next year, approximately half of the states will have some kind of abortion ban or restriction enacted. Indiana, Montana, and Nebraska are among states with no abortion rules on the book but are likely to pass legislation banning abortion.
While Republican states move on the issue, Democratic-led states are doing nothing or proposing amendments in state constitutions that support abortion, like California. The Biden administration is considering numerous proposals, including an idea to allow abortions on federal lands in red states.
