According to Guttmacher, 13 states are supportive of abortion rights — California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia.

Another 10 are “middle-ground,” having enacted two to three abortion restrictions: Alaska, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada and Wyoming.

The other 27 states, including Virginia, are considered “hostile” to abortion rights because they have enacted four or more major restrictions on abortion.
