There has been a mass migration of patients seeking abortion care as a result of the Supreme Court's decision.

Many journeys to other states were made after the court's decision. Some people decided to travel elsewhere immediately.

Amy Hagstrom Miller, the founder of a network of abortion clinics, said on Friday that they had to call hundreds of patients and cancel their appointments.

She said that people who have their first flight and first hotel stay are related to an abortion. For the first time in their lives, people have been learning how to fly and go through security with us.

The network of clinics was started by Miller. In addition to abortion care in Texas, Virginia, Minnesota, and Maryland, they also provided abortion medication and telemedicine services in Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, New Mexico, and Virginia. Miller said that they stopped providing abortion care in Texas on Friday to protect their staff.

Miller said that Texas patients have no options because of the criminal ban on abortions in Texas and the "trigger" law that will ban abortions after the SCOTUS decision. Following the SCOTUS decision, at least thirteen states have enacted laws banning abortions.

Miller said that many patients have been denied abortion since the law was enacted.

Insider has learned that the costs of an abortion in a state where it is not banned could be as high as $10,000.

Medical staff and physicians are moving. Miller told reporters that the organization has moved resources to re-open clinics in Minnesota and Maryland, adding staff and physicians in those locations.

There has been an increase in the number of abortions on the waiting list in nearby states.

"You can't just close clinics and expect people to be seen in a timely fashion," Miller said, adding that Texas patients faced 4- to 5-week wait times before the state passed the strictest abortion ban in the country.

According to a communications director at the Trust Women Foundation, Oklahoma was a destination for Texans seeking abortions after the passage of Texas's Senate Bill 8.

One of Trust Women's clinics is in Oklahoma. Gingrich-Gaylord said that the Kansas location has seen 50% out-of-state and 50% in-state patients.

The majority of patients in Oklahoma were from Texas. After Oklahoma's ban, that changed.

Gingrich-Gaylord said that Oklahomans were displaced to the clinic because they couldn't find appointments in their state.

Kansas is the closest abortion provider to over 7 million people. Four clinics are located in the state.

He said that there weren't enough clinics to start with. The impact is going to be long and lasting.
