Women forced to give birth as result of abortion bans

A study published on November 15 th, 2023 shows that birthrates have increased in the states that have implemented abortion banns.

A study by Caitlin Myers of the Georgia Institute of Technology, analysed the birthdates and found that there was an average increase in births of 2.3 percent relative to states where abortion was not restricted.

This means that approximately 32,000  women might have been forced to continue with a pregnancy they might have preferred to end. 

Aid Access is committed to try reach women who want and need it can get access to a safe abortion as nobody should be forced to give birth against their will.
