#ShortNews: Abortion Rate Drops 25% Over Last 6 Years

“… the wave of abortion restrictions passed at the state level over the last five years could also have contributed to the decline by making it more difficult for women to access needed services in highly restrictive states,” Guttmacher researchers said when they released a report on abortion numbers in January.

The report found that abortion numbers dropped below 1 million in the United States for the first time in four decades.

Data from the National Center for Health Statistics released in 2016 indicated similar abortion trends. The data found that both teen birth and teen abortion rates are declining to historic lows across the U.S.
