U.S. reproductive health clinics are fighting to remain open. Since 2010, 288 TRAP laws (Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers) have been passed by state legislatures. In total, 44 states and the District of Columbia have measures subjecting abortion providers to legal restrictions not imposed on other medical professionals. Unable to comply with these far-reaching and medically unnecessary laws, clinics have taken their fight to the courts. In 2016 the U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark ruling (Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt) that prevents individual states from essentially outlawing abortion.
