TradCatKnight: Pro Life: Abortion Rates Fall to Their Lowest Level Since Roe vs Wade as More Babies Saved From Abortion
The abortion rate in the U.S. has fallen to its lowest level since before Roe v. Wade, according to a new Centers for Disease Control report.
The CDC released its 2013 abortion surveillance report on Wednesday, showing a 5 percent drop in abortions from 2012 and a 20 percent drop since 2004. The CDC data, which is incomplete because the government does not require states to report abortion numbers, reported 664,435 abortions in 47 states in 2013. The abortion rate was 12.5 abortions per 1,000 women ages 15-44. In comparison to 2012, the new data indicates that about 34,500 fewer babies lost their lives to abortion in 2013.
