Nineteen states, including Utah, Wyoming and Idaho, will likely restrict abortion rights in the wake of the Supreme Court's recent ruling, and 22 other states will become legislative battlegrounds over the issue, Newsweek magazine reported Sunday.

Utah was listed as one of the states most likely to restrict medical abortions.Legislators in only 10 states seem firmly committed to keeping abortion legal, the magazine said, citing a survey of governors and legislators by Newsweek correspondents.

The survey, appearing in the magazine's July 19 issue, showed a shift among lawmakers in 12 states since a similar Newsweek survey in May. Of the 12, two states - Maryland and Delaware - previously were expected to keep the procedure legal but now appear likely to restrict abortion, Newsweek said.

The Supreme Court opened the door for states to impose restrictions on abortions in its July 3 decision in Missouri vs. Reproductive Health Services, paring back on its 1973 decision in Roe vs. Wade, which made abortion legal.

Anti-abortion activists in many states jumped at the July 3 ruling to call for special legislative sessions to enact stricter abortion laws, but the Newsweek survey found most lawmakers willing to wait for the next regular session to get a more accurate feel for constituents' wishes.

The survey found the states most likely to restrict abortions are:

Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming.

Those most likely to keep abortion legal are:

Alaska, California, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, New Mexico, New York, Vermont, Washington and the District of Columbia.

Those where legislative battles are likely are:

Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

In the May survey, Georgia, Minnesota and Oklahoma were seen as likely battlegrounds, but were ranked as likely to restrict abortion based on the latest poll.

New York, thought to be a future battle site in May, now appears likely to keep abortion legal, the magazine said.

Six states that were seen as likely to restrict abortion also have moved, with all six - Arizona, Illinois, Nevada, North Carolina, South Dakota and Tennessee - now considered ripe for legislative fights.
