REPORT: “On the Offense: A Playbook for States to Protect and Expand Abortion Access”

In case you missed it, new analysis by Data for Progress highlights the critical work and report issued by the California Future of Abortion Council.


The Data for Progress “memorandum draws upon the extensive and critical work of the California Future of Abortion Council’s policy blueprint, as well as earlier research published by Data for Progress, to provide a roadmap for blue states to protect and expand abortion access.”

“This memo provides context for the current abortion policy landscape, and then details policy recommendations under four thematic headlines: supporting people forced to travel for care; expanding Medicaid and insurance coverage of abortion; reducing cost as a barrier to care; and ending abortion stigma and misinformation. Each policy section includes recommendations from the California Future of Abortion Council, as well as additional proposals under the same theme. The goal of this memo is to inform policymakers and activists seeking to expand abortion access through policy analysis and national polling in order to help build a world of abortion justice for all.”


In addition to research and analysis on the policy proposals put forward by the California Future of Abortion Council, which has since turned into a 13-bill legislative package currently successfully moving through the California Legislature, Data for Progress also released new polling accompanying the research showing:

  • A majority of voters saying it is important to protect abortion services in their state
  • A majority of voters agree access to abortion is key to economic stability
  • Nearly half of voters think anti-abortion politicians do not represent their constituents
