Abortion Facility Report Shows Another Drop in Missouri Abortions

Computer Stats

According to a preliminary report from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), Missouri's abortion rate dropped significantly in 2019. The Abortion Facility Report, which is required to be provided to the Missouri General Assembly, included data from January 1 through November 15, 2019. According to the report, 1,354 abortions were conducted at Reproductive Health Services in St. Louis, the state's only active abortion clinic, in 2019. This number represents a 54 percent decrease from the 2018 total of 2,910 abortions and would be the lowest number in Missouri since Roe v. Wade was decided. DHSS has indicated that the report will be updated with data for the full 2019 calendar year on April 15, 2020.
