New Report Shows Abortion Rate at Lowest Level Since Roe

This week, the Guttmacher Institute released a report showing that between 2011 and 2017, the U.S. abortion rate fell by approximately 20 percent and is now at its lowest level since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. According to the report, the number of abortions nationwide fell from 1,058,000 in 2011 to 862,000 in 2017.
While the report's authors seek to minimize the contribution of pro-life policies to this decrease, others, such as Dr. Michael New, Associate Scholar at the Charlotte Lozier Institute, have argued that state pro-life laws have been a major factor in this decrease.
A link to the Guttmacher report, along with Dr. New's analysis, can be found at the Charlotte Lozier Institute website.
