Texas Abortion Restrictions

Abortion helped Democrats across the U.S. hold off a “red wave.” Not in Texas.

In conservative Kansas and Kentucky, voters turned out in droves and crossed party lines to support abortion access. In Texas — where candidates, not issues, were on the ballot — there was no such surge in support.

Demonstrators march against the overturning of Roe v. Wade, which virtually bans abortion in the state of Texas, on June 24, 2022.
