Wade, according to a leading reproductive rights advocacy group. That prediction from the Guttmacher Institute, issued last fall, gained renewed attention Tuesday with the leak of an initial draft of a Supreme Court decision that would reverse Roe and a related ruling, and thus eliminate the constitutional right to abortion. Chief Justice John Roberts confirmed the authenticity of the draft as reported by Politico, which, as of now at least, is not the official ruling of the court. But abortion rights advocates and Democratic lawmakers fear the court will soon issue a similar opinion. It would again allow individual states freedom to regulate abortion without the oversight of federal courts.CNBC PoliticsRead more of CNBC's politics coverage: Biden defends abortion rights...
    (CNN)More than half of US abortions in 2020 were conducted using medication, according to new data assembled by a reproductive rights think tank that marked a notable inflection point in the method's growing popularity amid new efforts to limit access to the pills.Use of medication abortion, in which patients use a two-pill regime to end their pregnancies, has been increasing steadily since the method was approved in 2000. However, the Covid-19 pandemic -- and how it made patients more comfortable with telehealth while a facilitating a loosening of federal regulations around the pills' use -- may have increased the method's prevalence. What is medication abortion?As medication abortion has become more popular, however, Republican-controlled states have become more aggressive about imposing their own limits on access. "We're seeing two major trends in 2022. One is around abortion bans. And the other is around medication abortion," said Elizabeth Nash, senior state issues manager at the Guttmacher Institute, which collected the new data. Surveying all known abortion providers, preliminary data assembled by Guttmacher show that 54% of US abortions in 2020 were medication...
    The French Parliament adopted a bill Wednesday to extend the limit for women to obtain abortions up to 14 weeks. The new measure is in response to a lack of supply of abortion doctors in the country as well as the closure of abortion clinics, according to a report. Prior to the bill's adoption, women could only access the procedure up until 12 weeks into their pregnancy. #DirectAN[COMMUNIQUE DE PRESSE] ????La #PPLIVG est définitivement adoptée.Cette loi fera date pour les droits des #femmes.Ce texte de progrès pour la société entière, appartient à celles et ceux qui défendent le droit à l’#IVG. ⤵️ pic.twitter.com/77MR7uT2zr— Albane Gaillot (@AlbaneGaillot) February 23, 2022 Reportedly, the bill received "135 votes for, 47 against, and 9 abstentions."

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Both sides are telling the Supreme Court there’s no middle ground in Wednesday’s showdown over abortion. The justices can either reaffirm the constitutional right to an abortion or wipe it away altogether. Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 ruling that declared a nationwide right to abortion, is facing its most serious challenge in 30 years in front of a court with a 6-3 conservative majority that has been remade by three appointees of President Donald Trump. “There are no half measures here,” said Sherif Girgis, a Notre Dame law professor who once served as a law clerk for Justice Samuel Alito.

    NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. abortions appear to be inching up after a long decline, though officials are cautious about calling it an upward trend because a government report issued Wednesday is incomplete. National abortion figures in 2017 reached their lowest level since the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortions. But the next two years, there were small increases in the abortion rate and numbers, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. They rose 1% in 2018. The next year, the numbers increased 2% and the rate per 1,000 women of child-bearing age rose 1%. The CDC report represents the latest available data on U.S. abortions. But it must be interpreted cautiously because it is based on voluntary reporting and is not comprehensive, experts say. Among its limitations: It does not include abortions from three states — including California, the nation’s most populous state. Other states may have significant undercounts. Those omissions mean that as much as 30% of the nation’s abortions may not be captured in the CDC data, according to officials at the Guttmacher...
    By Mark Sherman and Jessica Gresko | Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is taking up challenges to a Texas law that has virtually ended abortion in the nation’s second-largest state after six weeks of pregnancy, with at least one conservative justice who let the law take effect raising questions about its novel structure. The justices are hearing arguments Monday in two cases over whether abortion providers or the Justice Department can mount federal court challenges to the law, which has an unusual enforcement scheme its defenders argue shields it from federal court review.

    Senate Democrats on Monday introduced an appropriations measure for the State Department that sets up battles with the GOP over abortion, the Palestinians and climate change. The $60 billion bill keeps in place an effort to codify a repeal of the so-called Mexico City Policy. The policy prohibited U.S. funds going to organizations abroad that perform abortions or provide information about abortion. It also would make $705 million available for international family planning, including $55 million for the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

    NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) — Texas’ ban on abortions at six weeks has women fleeing the state to get the procedure. In Louisiana, an abortion clinic just 20 miles from the Texas border now has a five-week waiting period due to the high demand from women coming to get the procedure. Before the ban, the wait at the same facility was just a few days.

    The federal government will allocate $29 million to recipients of Title X funding to bolster the grant program that helps low-income patients obtain family planning services, such as contraception, in response to Texas's ban on abortions in most circumstances. “Every American deserves access to health care no matter where they live – including access to safe and legal abortions,” Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said on Friday. “HHS is taking actions to support and protect both patients and providers from this dangerous attack on Texans’ health care.” JUSTICE DEPARTMENT ASKS FEDERAL COURT TO BLOCK 'UNPRECEDENTED' TEXAS ABORTION LAW Becerra announced that HHS Office for Population Affairs will grant up to $29 million to Texas clinics to support organizations such as Every Body Texas to safeguard access to contraception after Gov.

The Justice Department launched a legal fight this week to block enforcement of the “unprecedented” law, which...
    The US Supreme Court decided not to stop the controversial law that bans most abortions in the state of Texas. The law prohibits abortions once a medical professional can detect cardiac activity. This usually happens around six weeks, the same time that most women discover that they are pregnant. There is a slight medical emergency exception that must be validated by a doctor. Greta Thunberg, the young climate activist weighed in on this abortion law on her Twitter, sharing her frustration by creating a chart describing why women have abortions.

    President Joe Biden has unleashed on the Supreme Court, ripping the conservative-leaning bench for "an unprecedented assault" on abortion rights. Biden charged the Supreme Court with stoking "unconstitutional chaos" after the justices denied an emergency appeal from abortion providers that implored the justices to block a Texas law banning abortions after six weeks of pregnancy without rape and incest exceptions. TRUMP HANGS OVER BIDEN'S WHITE HOUSE MEETING WITH UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT VOLODYMYR ZELENSKY "The Supreme Court’s ruling overnight is an unprecedented assault on a woman’s constitutional rights under Roe v. Wade, which has been the law of the land for almost 50 years," he said Thursday. "By allowing a law to go into effect that empowers private citizens in Texas to sue healthcare providers, family members supporting a woman exercising her right to choose after six weeks, or even a friend who drives her to a hospital or clinic, it unleashes unconstitutional chaos and empowers self-anointed enforcers to have devastating impacts." In the lengthy statement, Biden also announced he was directing the White House's Gender Policy Council and Office of...
    Protesters against abortion restrictions gathered at the Texas State Capitol on May 21, 2019.

Pro-choice advocates are spamming a Texas website that encourages people report abortions performed after six weeks of pregnancy — which, come September 1, will be illegal in the state.  The website calls on "citizens to hold abortionists accountable to following the law" by anonymously reporting providers or others who've "aided and abetted" an abortion after six weeks. That includes parents who drive their child to the clinic or friends who lend money for...
    Protesters against abortion restrictions gathered at the Texas State Capitol on May 21, 2019. Eric Gay/AP A federal appeals court upheld a Texas ban on dilation and evacuation procedures often used in second-trimester abortions. The appeals court said a lower court made "legal and factual errors" in its ruling.  Abortion activists said the law "is about cutting off abortion access, and nothing else." Business Insider: A daily selection of curated stories Loading Something is loading. Email address By clicking ‘Sign up’, you agree to receive marketing emails from Insider as well as other partner offers and accept our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. A federal appeals court upheld a Texas law that effectively bans dilation and evacuation, the most common form of second-trimester abortion. The ruling comes as Republicans are urging the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. Since the addition of Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett to the bench, the court has had a 6-3 conservative majority, leading anti-abortion legislators to believe they have a better shot at that goal.  Known as Senate Bill 8,...
    "Under the Constitution, may a State prohibit elective abortions before viability? Yes. Why? Because nothing in constitutional text, structure, history, or tradition supports a right to abortion," Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch and four of her attorneys wrote in an opening brief. They also argued that the conclusions reached in Roe and 1992 ruling Casey v. Planned Parenthood are "egregiously wrong" and have "inflicted significant damage" to the "principles of democratic self-governance." Both rulings declared that states cannot place an "undue burden" on abortion access before viability, which lawyers argue is unconstitutional. The arguments came as part of a brief filed in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. The case concerns a 2018 law passed in Mississippi that largely prohibits abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The law has been held up in the legal system as lower courts have cited Supreme Court precedent to keep the state from banning abortions before "fetal viability," or the point at which a fetus can survive outside the womb, generally believed to be 22 weeks. The state filed an appeal to the lower...
