Impact of New Abortion Restrictions on People in Prison: Estimated Number of Incarcerated People without Abortion Access and Distance to Abortion Providers.

Contraception 2023 September 5
OBJECTIVE: To estimate the annual number of incarcerated pregnant people in state and federal prisons needing an abortion.

STUDY DESIGN: We used 2021 Bureau of Justice Statistics data and prior studies' findings to estimate the number of pregnant incarcerated people, then calculated state-specific abortion ratios to determine the number potentially needing an abortion.

RESULTS: Out of 638 pregnant people incarcerated in prisons annually, 110 would be expected to need an abortion, including 55 in states where abortion is currently banned or restricted.

CONCLUSIONS: Under Dobbs, many incarcerated pregnant people will be forced to continue unwanted pregnancies to term.
