How many more states will make #abortion illegal?

Some abortions are already illegal in a majority of states and you may not even know yours is one of them.

Please read and RT.
Prior to #Roe in 1973, only three states, NY, WA and HI had legal abortion.
In 12 other states abortion was legal to save the life of the mother. In every other state abortion was illegal under all circumstances including rape, incest, fetal abnormality and life of the mother.
Currently, all but six states--44 plus DC-- require parental notification for a minor to obtain an #abortion, even though significant numbers of minor pregnancies are caused by incest.
Currently 35 states require a mandatory waiting period of 24 to 48 hours before a woman can have an #abortion. This means she must present at the abortion provider, fill out paperwork and then return after the waiting period. Many women cannot afford to do this.
Currently all but 17 states require mandatory counseling of the woman seeking an #abortion. Five of those states demand that counseling be in person. The others allow counselling by phone.
30 states have mandatory ultrasound laws. 13 must display the image to the woman before she can have an #abortion.
41 states and DC have fetal homicide laws which can be applied to women who self-induce an #abortion.
Currently #abortion is legal in all 50 states + DC. But the overwhelming majority of states have restrictions like mandatory waiting periods, ultrasounds, counseling. There are restrictions on how and when an abortion can be performed. Every woman should know her rights.
This provides a detailed overview of what is and is not legal and where with regard to #abortion in the US.
