ITOP Statistics

Induced Terminations of Pregnancy

These are statistical tables on Induced Terminations of Pregnancy (ITOP). Data on these statistical tables are from reports of induced termination of pregnancy sent per the Texas Abortion Facility Reporting and Licensing Act, Health and Safety Code, Chapter 245.

Data were received by the Texas Department of State Health Services until these functions were transferred to the Health and Human Services Commission on June 1, 2018. Beginning with the 2016 data, which was the most current when the transfer occurred, statistical tables have been prepared by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.

Senate Bill 8 (87th Legislature, Regular Session, 2021), which amended Health and Safety Code Section 245.011, impacts data collected about abortions performed on or after Sept. 1, 2021. Year-to-date data from abortions performed on or after Sept. 1 became available on the website beginning in Feb. 2022. The data reflects the added reporting requirements prescribed by this legislation, which relate to whether the procedure was performed or induced because of a medical emergency or to preserve the health of the pregnant woman, and the medical conditions requiring the procedure, or whether maternal health is not a purpose of the abortion.

Additionally, Senate Bill 4 (87th Legislature, 2nd Called Session, 2021) amended Health and Safety Code Section 171.006 to expand the list of events that must be reported as an abortion complication and applies to procedures performed or induced on or after Dec. 2, 2021. Data regarding the new complications became available on the website beginning in May 2022.
