The states include Connecticut, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Dakota, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and Wyoming.

Americans United for Life has state-by-state analysis and recently ranked states based on abortion laws (informed consent, parental involvement, provider requirements), recognition of the unborn (fetal homicide, born alive infant protection), bioethics (cloning, stem cell research, in vitro fertilization), end of life (assisted suicide), right of conscience clauses (healthcare providers and insurers can opt out of abortion).
