Incarcerated individuals in the United States face unique challenges in accessing abortion service due to restrictions on agency and mobility found within correctional facilities. While the constitutional right to an abortion while in prison has been determined, different states have chosen to legislate access in various ways, creating levels of restriction. Through analysis of state and federal legislation and policies, this study explores how state restrictions on abortion access for incarcerated individuals interact with indicators of repressiveness within those prison systems.
