This year, more abortion restrictions were enacted throughout the United States than in the previous year, according to an analysis by groups supporting the right to abortion.

The state legislature has so far passed at least 90 legislation restricting procedures in 2021 and Report released this month by Guttmacher Institute..

“We are really trying to pay attention to the fact that the state legislature is moving very quickly on the ban and restrictions on abortion,” said the report’s co-author and key policymaker at the Institute. Elizabeth Nash told the NPR. “The right to abortion is at stake.”

She said that some state legislative conservative changes currently underway in the Supreme Court, highlighted by a majority of six to three conservatives, have been reorganized under former President Trump and are against abortion. He said he was driving an extraordinary wave. Earlier records were set in 2011, when the state passed 89 abortion limits throughout the year.

It is a milestone that anti-abortion supporters who promote such legislation consider it a success.
