Visualizing Abortion Restrictions

by Morgan Stevens
data viz on abortion restrictions

FiveThirtyEight, a data journalism website, has created a series of visualizations showing abortion restrictions in the United States. The visualizations show factors that impact access to abortion services in every state, such as insurance restrictions, consent requirements, fetus viability timelines, and travel times to the nearest clinic offering abortion services. One visualization shows that 17 states require pregnant individuals to receive an ultrasound with solid white circles, 6 states require medical providers to display and describe the ultrasound image as red circles, and 8 states require medical providers to offer patients an opportunity to view the ultrasound image as green circles.

Take a look.
