Abortion falls to record low in the U.S., CDC says

Abortion in the U.S. is at record-low levels, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The number of induced abortions was 1.1 million in 2010, the most recent year for which statistics are available. That’s down from a high of 1.6 million in 1990, the report said.

The abortion rate also hit a new low in 2010, with 17.7 of the procedures performed per 1,000 women of childbearing age. That figure was as high as 29.4 abortions per 1,000 women in 1980.

    Like this is wonderful news? Even 1 is 1 too many. The taking of the most innocent lives is atrocious. What have we lost as a society I wonder through the mass genocide of so many potentially beautiful hearts, minds and souls? What precious gifts upon humanity will never see the light of day due to too many self-absorbed people wishing to end those innocent lives because they would cause them a mere inconvenience or the need to face their responsibility? It doesn’t say much for us as a supposedly civilized people.

    Well, if true, I hope it keeps on going down. There’s no need for this with all the contraception available.
