Abortions Drop to All-time Low

November 29, 2007

The Center for Disease Control released its latest annual abortion report, covering 2004, and the agency reports abortions nationwide have dropped 1.1 percent to their lowest levels since 1974. Though not all abortions are reported, this does proved a fair amount of accuracy, with only three states not providing statistics (California New Hampshire and West Virginia). The CDC reports that there were 839,226 abortions in 2004, which is lower than the 848,136 abortions reported the year before, bringing the amount of annual abortions to the lowest total since the year following Roe v. Wade.

    california probably has a good chunk of the abortion numbers though…and if the previous years’ reports include CA, NH, and VT numbers, then it’s misleading. ahh, statistics.
