As of September 1, 2021, Texas' governor Greg Abbot signed into law the strictest abortion law (SB 8) in the country, banning procedures as early as six weeks into pregnancy.

Advocacy organizations across the country are challenging these new regulations and are committed to protecting the rights of women to make these choices.

Join the League of Women Voters for a conversation with experts about the potential impact of these events.
