STATE OF THE STATES

Whether in the upcoming Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case or another future case, most legal experts believe Roe v. Wade’s days are numbered. This is wonderful news for restoring a culture of life in America! But there’s a big question that most everyone is asking.

If the Supreme Court overturns Roe and returns the regulation of abortion back to all 50 states, what does my state look like in a post-Roe world?

Family Policy Alliance, in partnership with the network of state-based family policy councils we host, has developed an After Roe Map. Simply click on your state to learn what your state’s laws on abortion will look like after Roe v. Wade.

  • Will your state instantly start to ban abortion?
  • If not, what kind of limitations will your state have?
  • Will your state see no change even if Roe is overturned?
  • Will your state ensure that medical professionals are protected from being forced to participate in abortions?
  • And, what are the biggest threats to life facing your state?

BONUS: In most states, when you click on your state, you will see a special video message from your state’s family policy leader on what the top threats and priorities are for your state.
