Ever since the conservative majority of the U.S. Supreme Court decided to overturn Roe v. Wade and repeal the national right to abortion, reproductive rights have been one of the most polarizing and pressing issues facing American politics. Immediately after the June ruling, many Republican-controlled states enacted strict abortion bans, while abortion access generally remained in more liberal-leaning areas of the country.
