>The number of Texas residents who traveled out-of-state to access

>Oklahoma saw a nearly 2,500% increase in Texas patients compared to the

>That same time in 2020, PPGP centers saw only 50 patients from Texas.

>What they're saying: "S.B. 8 has forced Texans to travel extraordinary
>dist ances to access constitutionally protected abortion care — and
>that ’s only the people who are able to do so," Alexis McGill Johnson,
>p resident of Planned Parenthood, said in a statement.

>"Those who can’t find the money or get time off work, secure child

>outside of the health care system," she added.

>"This reality is heartbreaking and a glimpse of what’s to come shou

>even further,” she added.

>"Planned Parenthood and other supporters of legal abortion have worked
>over time to make the case that the Texas heartbeat law is not protecting

> stat
>es," said Michael New, a statistician and scholar with the Lozier
>Institute , which works with the Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion
>rights group .
>
>New called Planned Parenthood's data "unpersuasive" and added that S.B. 8
>" has enjoyed success protecting preborn children in the Lone Star
>State."
>
>How it works: The Texas ban effectively prohibits nearly all abortions as
>s oon as embryonic cardiac activity is detected, which can be as early as
>six
> weeks into a pregnancy and before many people know they are pregnant.
>
>The law does not have any exceptions in cases of rape or incest.
>
>Between the lines: Texas and most of its neighboring states — speci
>fically Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas — have "trigger laws" in p
>lace, which are abortion bans that would kick in right away if the
>Supreme Court overturns or weakens its precedents protecting reproductive
>rights.
>
>The ban follows a series of restrictive abortion laws passed by
>conservativ e state legislatures nationwide in an effort to overturn Roe.
