This project evaluates the effects of Georgia House Bill 954, which bans abortions provided 22 weeks after a woman’s last menstrual period. The team is examining trends in abortion care delivery and outcomes following the bill’s passage. Through interviews with and surveys of reproductive healthcare providers, the team is also exploring how providers interpret HB 954 and how the bill affects medical practices and delivery of abortion and obstetric care. This study seeks to provide a comprehensive understanding of how HB 954 is implemented and how it may affect service delivery and health outcomes in Georgia.
