Texas Law Leads to More Self-Induced Abortions

The study was conducted by the University of Texas Population Research Center, Ibis Reproductive Health, the University of Alabama-Birmingham, and the University of California at San Francisco. The law, aimed at restricting abortions, has caused longer wait times, more clinic closures, and lower access to services.
