Map of the Day: Half of recent abortion clinic closures due to anti-choice laws

Map of clinic closures by state since 2011

Although the massive anti-choice law that’s forced at least a dozen clinics in Texas to cease their services recently has probably gotten the most attention, the Lone Star state is hardly the only place where it’s getting harder and harder to find an abortion provider. 

In the summer, HuffPo reported that 54 abortion clinics across 27 states ended their abortion services or shut their doors entirely since 2010. The latest tally, from Business Week, is up to at least 73 clinics since 2011New anti-choice laws–a whopping 203 of them passed in 30 states in recent years–are responsible for roughly half of the closures.

How’s your state doing?
