US Abortion Rate Plummets


According to Reuters, the abortion rates among American women of all ages has fell to a decade low in 2015. Opponents and supporters of abortion attributed the fall to individual states’ efforts to restrict access to the procedure. According to the CDC, the abortion rate was 11.8 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15 to 44 in 2015. That is down 26 percent from 2006, when the rate was 15.9 abortions per 1,000 women.

  • CDC Says US Abortion Rate Is The Lowest In Decades

    According to new data, the number and rate of abortions have fallen to their lowest level in decades. The latest annual report was released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It said the rate for 2013 was 12.5 abortions per one thousand women, ages 15 to 44. That is down five percent from 2012. The last time the CDC recorded a lower abortion rate was in 1971, two years before the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. That ruling established a nationwide right for women to have abortions. The CDC report suggests several factors that are behind the abortion decline. They include a sharp drop in adolescent pregnancies, expanded coverage of contraception costs by health care plans, and more use of effective, long-lasting contraceptive methods.

  • National Teen Birthrate Hits Record Low: CDC

    According to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study, the teen birthrate hit an all-time low in 2015. Officials say increased access to birth control may be to thank. With a rate of 22 live births per 1,000 teenage girls aged 15 to 19, last year’s data shows a 64 percent decrease from 1991 when the country’s teen birthrate was at its highest. Guttmacher Institute researcher Isaac Maddow-Zimet, said sexual activity among teens hasn’t changed much over the past decade. Instead, a steady increase in contraceptive use kept sexually active teens from becoming parents.
