SUMMARY: A research paper published recently shows that an abortion ban passed in Texas in 2021 led to an additional 9,799 live births in the state. The study confirms what researchers had expected, that abortions would decrease and live births would increase after the ban was implemented. Using statistical modeling and examining live birth data from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, researchers estimate that there would have been 287,289 live births in Texas between April and December 2022 if the ban had not been enacted. The findings highlight the real consequences of abortion bans on pregnant individuals.
