Big Wins The First Week of October 2022

This week Wellspring is pleased to announce two big wins in the abortion rights movement.  With both Ohio and Arizona on October 7, 2022 making abortion services legally available in their respective states.

As of Saturday, 10/08/2022, there are 13 states that severely restrict access to abortions — Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia and Wisconsin. And access is significantly limited in a 15th state, Georgia, where the procedure is allowed until the detection of fetal cardiac activity, which usually happens around six weeks of pregnancy.
