Association Between Distance to an Abortion Facility and Abortion or Pregnancy Outcome Among a Prospective Cohort of People Seeking Abortion Online

Elizabeth A. Pleasants, Alice F. Cartwright,

Abstract: Abortion is a common pregnancy outcome in the United States and an essential health service, yet many people must travel long distances to reach an abortion facility. As of 2017, 89% of counties within the US did not have a facility providing abortion.1 Myriad state laws across the US make it harder to obtain an abortion. An unprecedented number of increasingly aggressive restrictions have been enacted in recent years, including the 6-week abortion ban in Texas and laws in 26 states that will certainly or likely ban abortion if the US Supreme Court overturns Roe v Wade.2,3 State-level abortion restrictions also influence the geographic distribution of facilities, given that these restrictions may be associated with facilities closing and dissuade new facilities from opening, often where needed most.4-8
