In total, 26 states have laws that indicate they can make abortion illegal or impose extreme limits, effectively banning abortion in those states, according to the Gutmaker organization.

Kentucky, Louisiana and South Dakota – Three states had so-called “trigger bans” that were automatically enforced. Rowe v. Wade’s reversed Supreme Court ruling on Friday, 1973 decision that established the constitutional right to abortion. Other states Is Trigger ban With enforcement mechanisms that occur after a certain period of time or after a step has been taken by a unit of the State Government.
Of the latter category of trigger-ban states, Missouri has already taken the necessary steps to enforce a ban on abortion, including the state The announcement was made Friday by Attorney General Eric Schmidt He had taken the step of certification given by Missouri law.

Oklahoma, which recently enacted a law banning most abortions, has also taken steps to enforce its trigger ban, according to the state’s attorney general’s office. Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Routledge also certified the state’s trigger ban, which will take effect Friday, Governor Asa Hutchinson announced.

John L., general counsel for the Utah Legislature, provided to CNN by KUTV. According to a letter sent by Fellow, Utah’s trigger ban went into effect Friday. And Saturday, Utah Planned Parenthood Sued Trying to block it.

Other states have banned abortions that were blocked by courts that guaranteed the right to abortion. Those states can act quickly to lift those court orders so that those restrictions can be enforced.

Ohio Attorney General David Yost Announced Friday The state’s so-called heartbeat restraining orders, which ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected – were dissolved six weeks before conception, before many women found out they were pregnant. In court documents, U.S. District Judge Michael Barrett said he defended Yost in dissolving the restraining order, but the court “refused to dismiss the case at this time. On the contrary, a status conference will be set by a separate notice to discuss further proceedings.”
Alabama Governor K Iwe referred to the court order The state stopped the 2019 abortion ban And an Alabama statement said it would “immediately ask the court to remove any legal impediments to the implementation of this law.” A federal judge in Alabama on Friday approved an emergency proposal to overturn a restraining order against Alabama’s ban, following a Supreme Court ruling.

States including Wisconsin and West Virginia had abortion restrictions before Roche’s decision that were never lifted.

In Wisconsin, the Republican-controlled state legislature refused to repeal the 1849 state law banning abortion during a special session convened by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers on Wednesday – allowing it to re-enact after the High Court overturned the row.

“We will fight this decision with every force we have,” Evers said in a written statement.

Wisconsin Democratic Attorney General Josh Kaul told CNN-affiliated WISN before the court’s decision that it was not his intention to impose an abortion ban at the state level. However, following the decision on Friday, his office issued a statement saying, “Our office is reviewing today’s decision and will provide more information on how to proceed next week.”

At the same time, across the eastern border of Wisconsin, the state of Minnesota is preparing for a possible influx of women who have had abortions due to bans in other states. Democratic Gov. Tim Wallace of Minnesota signed an executive order Saturday that is designed to protect aborted women from having legal consequences in other states.

A ban is expected soon

States with trigger laws expected to ban abortion in the coming days and weeks include Wyoming, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas and Idaho.

Tennessee Attorney General Herbert H. Slattery III said that in addition to the implementation of the trigger ban within 30 days, the state had asked the appellate court to lift the ban on abortion within about six weeks. Pregnancy

In Texas, where the trigger ban will be imposed on the 30th day after the Supreme Court ruling (next week’s court move), Attorney General Ken Paxton Has announced that local prosecutors can now begin enforcing the abortion ban passed by the state before Roche’s decision. (Texas had already effectively banned abortion when it imposed a six-week ban last year.)

Elsewhere in the country, it is likely that state legislatures will soon be reconvened to pass stricter abortion laws that previously went against Roche.

Indiana Republican Governor Eric J. Holcomb is calling for the General Assembly to return on July 6, so legislators can consider anti-abortion legislation.
