As of February 2023, since the 2021 Texas Heartbeat Bill and 2022 Dobbs decision, studies indicate that overall abortions for Texas women have declined by at most about 5.4% (52,177 estimated annually down from 55,175 in 2020).

It is estimated that over 19,000 babies will still be legally killed by abortion on Texas soil this year. That’s 50+ babies every day.
