Good News: Abortion Rates Have Dropped 12% Since 2010

Wow, so what is going on out there. As our nation gets more liberal in some respects, abortion rates are falling. Abortion is down 12 percent since 2010.

Abortion pushers will claim that it is because some states have passed new laws limiting abortion, but that doesn’t explain why even states with easier access have falling abortion rates.

States that have passed laws to reduce abortion such as Indiana, Missouri, Ohio and Oklahoma, have seen a drop in the number of abortions, but so have states with easier access to abortion such as New York, Washington and Oregon.

Only two states—Louisiana and Michigan—have seen a “significant increase” in the number of abortions.

…Charmaine Yoest, the president of Americans United for Life told the AP that the reduced rate reflects “a change in attitudes.”

“There’s an entire generation of women who saw a sonogram as their first baby picture,” Yoest said. “There’s an increased awareness of the humanity of the baby before it is born.”

What ever the case, this also tracks with the fact that rates of pregnancy of unwed teenagers are going down, too.

This is all good news.
