                                Recent Developments

                                Nov 14, 2022 - Providers Launch Mobile Units In Response To State-level Abortion Bans
                                • Planned Parenthood has developed a mobile clinic to make it easier for patients in states with abortion bans to reach them. The clinic on wheels will operate within Illinois, where abortion remains legal, but will be able to travel closer to other state lines. It's one of just a few such units nationwide that are set up to provide abortions. Thousands of patients began visiting the organization's clinic in southern Illinois since the US Supreme Court overturned the abortion-rights precedent Roe v. Wade in June, according to Planned Parenthood officials. Planned Parenthood wanted to find a way to expand capacity and make it easier for patients in states with abortion bans to reach them. Many struggle to get time off work, find child care, and cover the costs of traveling long distances for appointments.
                                • The US Department of Health and Human Services will make $6 million in grants available to expand access to family planning clinics that receive Title X federal funding. The Biden administration has also asked Congress for an additional $400 million for the clinics. It also said that the US Department of Education will issue a reminder to universities that they cannot discriminate against students on the basis of pregnancy, including if a pregnancy has been terminated. A Pew Research Center survey this summer showed that 61% of Americans believe that abortion should be legal in most cases, though the political divide over those questions has become starker.
                                • A new battle over reproductive rights has begun since the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the court's 1973 decision that abortion is a right protected by the US Constitution, advocacy groups say. Some federal lawmakers have pushed for new restrictions on contraceptive access, but the US House of Representatives passed legislation to protect the right to contraception. Some lawmakers in Missouri unsuccessfully tried to ban taxpayer funding for emergency contraception, which some lawmakers consider a form of abortion. Legislators in several states, including Missouri and Texas, have passed laws barring Planned Parenthood from seeing Medicaid patients for family planning services. Clare Coleman, president and CEO of the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association, said that she expects more legislation during upcoming statehouse sessions this winter.
                                • There was less of a pandemic-related baby bust than expected, but experts say that it doesn't reflect changing family planning dynamics in the US. It's more likely to be indicative of shrinking access to abortions and birth control across the country, especially for low-income women, according to the National Bureau for Economic Research. Access to contraception and abortion fell in 2020 as reproductive health centers temporarily closed or reduced capacity. Researchers also noted the impact of changes made in 2019 to the Title X Public Health Care Service Act that were likely to have restricted access to reproductive services.
