13 states that may have abortion referendums in 2024


In the 2021-2022 legislative session, the Republican-controlled Pennsylvania legislature approved legislation that would ask voters if they wanted to amend the state constitution to read “This Constitution does not grant the right to taxpayer-funded abortion or any other right relating to abortion.”

However, Pennsylvania law requires constitutional amendments to be approved by the legislature in two consecutive legislative sessions before they can appear on the ballot. Unlike in the last legislative session, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives is now controlled by Democrats, putting in doubt whether the body has the votes necessary to pass it.

In the meantime, Pennsylvania will continue to ban abortions after 24 weeks gestation. Even if the ballot proposal goes before voters and passes, the legal status of abortion in Pennsylvania will remain unchanged.
