STATES THAT HAVE ENACTED ABORTION REGULATIONS SIMILAR TO TEXAS

Note: More than 20 states in the U.S. have laws that require abortion providers meet the same building standards as surgical centers but not all are as stringent as Texas.
Admitting privileges: In effect in North Dakota but settled out of court with Red River Women's Clinic in 2014; Texas enjoined against two plaintiffs in the Whole Women's Health v. Cole lawsuit but the law is generally in effect.
ASC requirements: The laws are enacted in Tennessee and Virginia but not in effect. In the four other states where the law is in effect, abortion clinics are eligible to obtain waivers from the requirements, either in pursuant to the law or to a court order.

PERCENT OF COUNTIES WITHOUT A KNOWN ABORTION PROVIDER IN 2011

As of 2011, the Guttmacher Institute estimates that in 24 states, 90 percent or more counties do not have a known abortion provider.

Note: A provider is a hospital, clinic or physician's office where abortions are performed. A clinic is a non-hospital facility that reported 400 or more abortions a year, including abortion clinics and non-specialized clinics.
