LONG-LASTING BIRTH CONTROL
The number of women using highly effective and long-acting forms of birth control, like intrauterine devices (IUDs), has risen, reducing unplanned pregnancies.
A recent study of Texas abortion restrictions found that distance matters. The counties where the closest facility was at least 100 miles away saw a 50% drop in abortions.
As more facilities closed in Texas, counties with an abortion-providing clinic saw a 16% drop in procedures, possibly because of an inability to meet demand.
