Birth control restrictions could follow abortion bans, experts say

The Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade could pave the way for states to restrict access to some contraceptives, two legal experts said. Ahead of Friday, 13 states had trigger laws designed to go into effect and outlaw abortion after a Roe reversal. Such bans are now in place in Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma and South Dakota, and are expected soon in Mississippi, North Dakota, Utah and Wyoming. Bans in Idaho and Tennessee could follow in 30 days, and Texas shortly after that.
