'Planned Parenthood declared a 'state of emergency' for women's health following the passage of laws in several states restricting or near-outright banning abortion.
The organization claims that these new laws threaten access to abortion care, birth control, and reproductive health care, according to the report it released on Thursday.
Several states have introduced or passed bills that have restricted abortion past the first trimester, including Alabama, Georgia, Missouri and Ohio.
And, on June 1, Missouri's only abortion clinic may be closed because the state is threatening to not renew its license.
Planned Parenthood argues that these measures will not stop abortions and will only give rise to unsafe - and potentially deadly - back alley abortions.
Meanwhile, hundreds have taken to the streets and are protesting their local governments after these bills were signed into law.
According to the report, 303 bills restricting abortion were filed in 47 states this year.
Six states - Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi and Ohio - have all passed restrictive abortion laws after six weeks' gestation.
Alabama has passed what is perhaps the most extreme restriction, banning abortion from the time a woman 'knows she is pregnant'.
There are no exceptions for rape and incest and doctors who perform abortions can be charged with a felony and be sentenced up to 99 years in prison.
In Texas, a failed bill proposed criminalizing abortion and making it possible for women to be punished via the death penalty.
'Across the country we are seeing unprecedented assaults on women's health, especially in states that already have some of the worst health outcomes for women and children,' Planned Parenthood president Dr Leana Wen said in a statement.
'We must consider this grave threat to women's health as we would any other public health emergency.'
