(CNN) — Laws that ban abortion or severely restrict the procedure have gone into effect in about a dozen states since the U.S. Supreme Court ended a constitutional right to abortion.
On July 26, the Supreme Court transmitted its judgment in the case, taking the procedural step that started the process for some states to implement their so-called trigger bans on abortion.
Here are the states that have enacted restrictions on abortion or face legal challenges over their bans:
States where abortion bans or limits are in effect
Alabama: Full ban
A federal judge on June 24 lifted an injunction against a 2019 state law that bans abortions. It allows exceptions to prevent a “serious health risk” to the mother, for ectopic pregnancy and if the “unborn child has a lethal anomaly.”
Arkansas: Full ban
Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge certified the state’s trigger ban, allowing it take effect on June 24. It bans abortions except in the case of a life-threatening emergency.
Florida: 15-week ban (under challenge)
A law banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy took effect on July 1. It has exemptions for “serious risk” to the pregnant person or for a fatal fetal abnormality if two physicians confirm the diagnosis in writing.
A state judge on June 30 said he would issue a temporary statewide injunction and signed a written order on July 5. But the state also filed an appeal, a move that automatically stayed the judge’s injunction, so the law remains in effect while litigation continues.
Georgia: 6-week ban (under challenge)
A state law that bans abortions as early as six weeks of pregnancy took effect on July 20. A challenge has been filed, but a judge declined in August to halt the law’s enforcement while the lawsuit played out.
Idaho: Full ban (blocked in some cases)
Idaho’s trigger law banning most abortions went into effect August 25. It allows exceptions to prevent the death of the pregnant person or in situations of rape or incest that have been reported to law enforcement.
A federal judge on August 24 blocked enforcement of the ban in certain medical emergencies, after the Biden administration sued the state, arguing that the law opened doctors up to prosecution for care they were obligated to offer under federal law. The case could be appealed, potentially leading to the Supreme Court being asked to weigh in.
Kentucky: Full ban (under challenge)
A Kentucky state court of appeals on August 1 reinstated the state’s so-called trigger law banning abortion as well as a separate law banning the procedure after roughly six weeks of pregnancy. The laws are being enforced while the challenge proceeds in the courts.
Louisiana: Full ban (under challenge)
Louisiana’s abortion trigger ban is in effect while a legal challenge to the law continues.
Mississippi: Full ban
The law that took effect July 7 has exceptions only in cases of rape or if the pregnant person’s life is endangered.
Missouri: Full ban
The law that took effect June 24 has exceptions for medical emergencies.
North Carolina: 20-week ban
Took effect Aug. 17.
Oklahoma: Full ban
Abortion had been unavailable in the state since May, after the governor signed bills into law that allowed civil enforcement of abortion restrictions. After the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe, the state’s attorney general said that the state may enforce its abortion ban, which allows exceptions to save the pregnant person’s life.
South Dakota: Full ban
The law that took effect June 24 has exceptions for life-threatening medical emergencies.
Tennessee: Full ban
The law that took effect Aug. 25 allows exceptions only to prevent the pregnant woman’s death or if there is serious risk of “substantial and irreversible impairment” of a bodily function.
Texas: Full ban
Texas’ trigger law went into effect on August 25; it has exemptions only for certain health emergencies. The state additionally has a civil enforcement law, authorizing private citizens to bring lawsuits against alleged violators for abortions performed after about six weeks.
West Virginia: Full ban
West Virginia’s governor on September 16 signed a bill into law that prohibits abortion except if the embryo or fetus is nonviable; if a medical emergency exists; in the case of an ectopic pregnancy; and in the case of rape or incest. The rape or incest exception is only allowed up to eight weeks for adults, 14 weeks for minors, and the crime needs to have been reported to law enforcement.
Wisconsin: Full ban (under challenge)
A state court has been asked to block the ban, which has no exception for rape and incest.
States where abortion bans or extreme limits are on hold
Arizona: 15-week ban; full ban has not been enacted
A state court has been asked to lift a court injunction against an abortion ban. In effect starting September 24 is a separate law banning abortion at 15 weeks.
Indiana: Full ban on hold
Indiana’s law banning most abortions took effect on September 15, but a week later, a state judge blocked it from being enforced. The law provides exceptions for when the life of the mother is at risk and for fatal fetal anomalies, up until 20 weeks, and if pregnancy was a result of rape or incest, up to 10 weeks.
Iowa: 6-week ban awaiting court approval
Gov. Kim Reynolds asked a state court on August 11 to revive a six-week abortion ban that had previously been halted in 2019.
Michigan: Full ban blocked
The state’s pre-Roe abortion ban was deemed unconstitutional by a state court judge, and a Sept. 7 order permanently enjoined enforcement of it by certain state officials. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer successfully sought an order halting its enforcement by county officials as well.
North Dakota: Full ban blocked
The state’s trigger ban was blocked a day before it was set to go into effect on August 26. It has exceptions to save the life of the mother or in cases of rape or incest.
Ohio: 6-week ban blocked
A state judge on September 14 blocked for 14 days Ohio’s law prohibiting abortions as early as six weeks. Those challenging the law are seeking an injunction while the case plays out.
South Carolina: 6-week ban blocked
The South Carolina Supreme Court on August 17 temporarily blocked the state’s six-week abortion ban from being enforced while the challenge to the law continues.
Utah: Full ban blocked
A state judge blocked the trigger law while litigation continues. It would allow exceptions for cases of rape or incest, severe birth defects, or prevention of the death or serious injury of the person giving birth. While the ban is being blocked, abortions are allowed until 18 weeks.
Wyoming: Full ban blocked
Wyoming’s abortion ban was blocked on July 27, the day it was set to go into effect. The law has exemptions for incest, rape or “serious risk of death or of substantial and irreversible physical impairment.”
