According to a new report, the proportion of U.S. abortions administered through medication rose to over 60% in 2023 following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.

This decision allowed many states to ban abortion, restricting surgical access.

As a result, there was a 10% increase since 2020 in abortions using the two-pill regimen.

The report found over 1 million total abortions in the U.S. in 2023, the highest number since 2012.

Access to medication abortion now hangs in the balance as the Supreme Court will hear arguments on preserving access to mifepristone, one of the pills.

“As abortion restrictions proliferate post-Dobbs, medication abortion may be the most viable option – or the only option – for some people, even if they would have preferred in-person procedural care,” Guttmacher principal research scientist Rachel Jones said.

If access is limited, medication may be the only option for some seeking abortion.

The 2023 increase was concentrated in states where abortion remains legal that are near states with bans.

The survey likely undercounted total abortions by not including those from abroad.
