I don’t think there’s as much sex going on either.
Sadly, most of this decline is because of an upswing in the use of chemical abortion known as the “morning after” pill. Over 20% of all women had used it as of 2015. God only knows what the statistic is now.
Do these numbers count the number of women who used RU-486 or the Morning After Pill?
If not, why arent those babies counted as being murdered?
Also, that the young women are so demanding and perpetually dissatisfied, that is an impediment to intimacy. (Helen Reddy: "I am woman! Hear me whine, moan, nag and criticize!")
Anyway, it would be nice if there were fewer recorded abortions because of a spiritual shift among young people. I doubt that's the case.
young people today really use condoms at a much greater rate than people used to.
Would any bank approve a loan to any business
whose plan might kill off accidentally their own customers (some pregnant women) as they are paid to kill off their customers children (your future customers) and their children.
No wonder Planned Parenthood is harvesting and selling baby body parts to the highest bidder!
They have killed off their future customers ...the next generation of women and their children and childrens children, etc, etc, etc
So much looking for your ancestry!
A nation that kills its own children is a nation without hope.

Didnt the left say they wanted them to be safe, legal and RARE?
“US [surgical] abortion rate lowest in decades, report finds”
Modern chemistry does much of the abortion work nowadays.
Over 64,000 less killed humans, is a ‘slight improvement’?
Even one fewer death is significant to me.
I don’t think this decline is solely up to birth control and contraceptives either.
More people are seeing the killing of the unborn as a disgusting thing to do.
I think Trump has had a lot to do with it also. Just taking a stand and talking about it helps people to change their views.
People dogged Nancy Reagan for her “Just say no” campaign. Drug abuse in our high schools dropped by a signification number in those days. Along came Clinton and his “I didn’t inhale” comment, and right back the drug abuse came.
Just expressing reasoned values in public is helpful. And finally we have a president who is up to the task.
Defunding Planed Parentless, now that’ll change some numbers.
RE: US abortion rate lowest in decades, report finds
Actually, it’s not because of any NET change in attitude towards abortion. It’s because ( as the article notes ):
Less women are getting pregnant due to better contraceptives.
What this does for America’s future demographics, the article does not tell us.
“14.6 abortions per 1000 women...” Notice it doesn’t say “pregnant women.” This statistic is hiding the freakishly high percentage of abortions in California (1 in 4 pregnancies end in abortion), NY (1 in 3), and DC (2 in 5).
Praise the Lord!
