Abortions Decline Chart

Washington, DC - The Associated Press has released a new report showing that the number of abortions have fallen in all but two states since 2010.

The percentage of decrease for abortions ranged from a low 2.6 in Illinois to a remarkable high of 29.9 percent in Hawaii.

The report found the average abortion drop was 12% over the past five years.
North Carolina had the second largest decrease in abortions at 26.3 percent followed by New Mexico with a still impressive 23.9 percent drop.

Large decreases in abortion numbers occurred in both conservative states with multiple safety restrictions, such as North Carolina, as well as liberal states with few abortion laws, such as New Mexico.

"The states where we see large decreases in abortion numbers are generally states that experienced abortion clinic closures and in states with very active pro-life opposition," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and co-author of the book Abortion Free. "Of course other factors contributed to the decrease, but these numbers confirm that when abortion clinics close, abortion numbers drop and lives are saved."


The new book, Abortion Free by Troy Newman and Cheryl Sullenger, tells step by step how to make your community abortion free! It is available for order at
