It's been just over a year since Texas passed hideously severe (and not medically necessary) restrictions on abortion providers. In that time, over half of the clinics in the state have been forced to stop offering abortion services — however, the rate of abortion procedures in the state has only dropped 13 percent. Turns out, denying women easy access to reproductive health services doesn't magically make abortion disappear. Huh.
