Study: Abortion rate hits lowest point since Roe v. Wade decision

February 4, 2014

The U.S. abortion rate declined to its lowest point in 2011 since the procedure became legal across the country in the 1970s, according to research released late Sunday.

The Guttmacher Institute, a think tank that supports abortion rights, found in a census that the abortion rate dropped in 2011 to 16.9 abortions per 1,000 women of childbearing age.

This rate is the lowest since 1973, when the Supreme Court handed down in its Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion in all 50 states. That year, there were 16.3 abortions per 1,000 women of childbearing age, Guttmacher reported.

The study also pointed out the 2011 rate is “well below” the 1981 peak of 29.3 abortions per 1,000 women.

The research was conducted via a census of abortion providers, and echoes previous findings by the Centers for Disease Control, which reported a decline in the abortion rate last year after surveying data from state health departments.

    I guess we can expect a big push by planned parenthood, maybe a two for one sale, or maybe even get an abortion and you get back stage tickets to a Justin bieber concert. Then you’ll have to get more abortions, Gee, this could go on indefinitely.

    Look out. Obama will have to give millions more to continue to do the work of Margaret Sanger. She started this murder INC to eliminate the “inferior” race, blacks. Why will the MSM not publish the truth and facts on abortion? Who pays them?

      You need to educate yourself. Read a little of her biography. She supported many things in the black community, including opening medical clinics in Harlem.
      And regarding this news story – maybe the reason the abortion rate is lower is because women have had access to contraceptives. Take away the contraceptives and see what happens. More abortions, more deaths. Certainly not less sex.

        Of course the birth control she fought for was good, but the facts she and Hitler were for eugenics, and she held the black race inferior to the white race just as Hitler did. She used black ministers in Brooklyn to mask her true reason for starting a medical clinic there. She was not an angle other than an angle of death.

        Check,, and Come back after you have been educated. Was she in awe of Hitler or was it the other way around. Eugenics was their baby.
