TRAP Laws: Decreasing Access, Driving Providers Away


In the more than 40 years since Roe v. Wade, anti-choice activists and lawmakers have used nearly every trick and tactic to make abortion illegal. Because those efforts have largely failed, they have looked instead for ways to make the procedure inaccessible. One of those tactics is known as TRAP laws (Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers). Typically promoted as regulatory schemes that are reasonable and appropriate, in fact, TRAP rules impose significant burdens on health-care providers, with the goal of forcing them to shut their doors.

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
