Self-induced abortions may be higher in Texas

A new study estimates at least 100,000 Texas women have tried to self-induce an abortion.

The Texas Policy Evaluation Project reports self-induction may be more common here than in other states.

Researchers found Latinas along the Mexico border and women who report barriers to accessing reproductive health care were more likely to attempt a self-abortion.

The Texas abortion restriction law is set to go before the U.S. Supreme Court next year.
