Between June 24, the day the Supreme Court struck down Roe v Wade and the constitutional protection of a right to abortion via its decision in the Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, and August 2022,  there was a 65% decrease in the number of abortions performed in Ohio, according to data collected by the Society of Family Planning. Many states, including Ohio, either had trigger laws in place which immediately made abortion illegal or severely restricted access to it or quickly passed legislation to do the same, leading to a nationwide decrease of 6%.
