The U.S. has continued to see a drop in the number of reported abortions, according to data released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
There were 623,471 abortions performed in areas across the country that reported data to federal officials in 2016, the latest available year for data, down from 636,902 the previous year, the CDC found.
The latest abortion rate was 11.6 abortions per 1,000 women between the ages of 15 and 44 down slightly from 11.8 in 2015 while the overall abortion ratio ticked down to 186 abortions per 1,000 live births.
The 2016 abortion figures were based on counts provided to the CDC from 47 states and New York City. California, Maryland, New Hampshire and Washington, D.C., did not provide data. The three states also did not provide data in previous years.
The total number of abortions since 2007 in the states that reported their data to the federal government decreased by 24 percent, from 825,240, and the abortion ratio decreased 18 percent from the previous count, 226 abortions per 1,000 live births.
In 2016, most women who received abortions were in their 20s, with 30 percent of all abortions being performed on women age 20 to 24. Another 28.5 percent of abortions were performed on women between the ages of 25 and 29.
Nearly two-thirds, 65 percent, of all abortions were performed at or before eight weeks of gestation and 91 percent were performed at or before 13 weeks of gestation, while 1.2 percent were performed at or after 21 weeks of gestation.
The CDC identified three deaths linked to abortion in 2015, the latest year with available data. It found that two deaths were related to legal abortion, no deaths were related to illegal abortion and that for one death, the circumstances were unknown.

Did that pull the guts out of anyone else here?
Well, democrat girls keep getting uglier and male-er
Used to be around 3k a day which pushed the annual number to over a million. This drops it down to closer to 2k a day. 1 is too many but this is a relative improvement. I would say a lot of the pundits would say the improved economy is the main factor but of course that might credit the President for that so I’m not sure they will state that or not.
Thanks for posting.
EUGENCISTS puppets ALERT!
Cmon men its in your hands. Use it wisely. Dont allow your seed to go into an idiot/monster. Do not get to the point where a eugenicists puppet will slaughter your daughter or son. Think with your big head. Thanks.
I tried dad
I tried real hard
I wanted to make it so much.
I know you did, son
Just for perspective:
1,709 abortions every single day of the year.
The equivalent of a 9-11 event every 42 hours. Four such events every week.
The State of Vermont (626,299) in a year - almost. Wyoming (577,737) by December 4th.
Louisville KY (620,118) is the 29th-largest city in the US. Gone by Dec 28th.
Population data from Wikipedia, as of the 2018 Census Bureau estimate.
On the 2010 census, Baltimore, Boston, Seattle, WA DC, Nashville, Denver are the top 6 with the equivalent (or less) population.
This is a good trend, considering that the abortion toll was once a million babies per year higher.
What this means is that those who have the genetically coded psychological characteristics that enable them to casually use abortion for birth control are removing their anti-survival genes from the gene pool. Eventually, those genes will be nearly eliminated, and abortion will become exceedingly rare.
So fewer women are murdering their babies and still getting away with murder.
Women and complicit men or worse, actual baby killer “doctors “ like Gosnell
This is in large part due to the morning after pill, which itself is actually abortion. When including the morning after pill in their statistics, it wouldn’t surprise me if the abortion rates are as high as ever.
Crazy. Over half a MILLION. BABIES. MURDERED
