Initial Impacts of Texas’ Senate Bill 8 on Abortions in Texas and at Out-of-State Facilities

Oct. 29, 2021.

A new research brief from TxPEP describes changes in the number of abortions provided in Texas during the first 30 days that SB8 was in effect. It also reports wait times until the next available appointment at out-of-state facilities in September 2021. Wait times serve as a measure of facility capacity to meet patient demand and are an important indicator of access for time-sensitive health care, such as abortion.
