The 12 states that have not expanded Medicaid have abortion restrictions: Number of states that have expanded Medicaid by abortion policy status

Medicaid expansion No Medicaid expansion
Abortion-protected 25 0
Abortion-restricted 14 12 

Notes: This figure is updated to 2022. While a ballot initiative in South Dakota to expand Medicaid succeeded in November 2022, it will not be implemented until mid-2023. Therefore, South Dakota is still counted in the “No Medicaid expansion” category.
