In 2000, 13 states had at least four types of major abortion restrictions and so were considered hostile to abortion rights; 27 states fell into this category by 2013. The proportion of women living in restrictive states went from 31% to 56% during this time period. (18 of the 27 hostile states are considered extremely hostile.)
In contrast, the number of states supportive of abortion rights fell from 17 to 13. The proportion of women of reproductive age living in supportive states fell from 40% to 31% between 2000 and 2013.
