Abortions In USA At Lowest Level Since 1974


A report by the Guttmacher Institute, which supports abortion rights and is the only entity which counts all abortions in the US, stated that the number of abortions in the U.S. had dropped to under one million, the lowest level since 1974. According to the report, there were only 926,000 reported abortions in 2014, which represents a 12.5 percent drop since the latest survey, which counted 1.06 million abortions in 2011. Only six states reported an increase in abortion rates in 2014. Authors of the report claim the low number is likely due to the increased availability of affordable, long-lasting contraceptives that have reduced unintended pregnancies.
