    The abortion rate in the United States reached a record low in 2017 as pregnancy rates declined and contraception use rose, according to the pro-choice Guttmacher Institute. Guttmacher reported that there were 14.6 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44, a slight decrease from the 16.9 the organization estimated for 2014. The total number of abortions declined to 862,320, much lower than the 1.3 million observed in 2000 and a slight decline from the 926,200 reported in 2014. According to Guttmacher, the decline follows a decades-long trend seen since the Supreme Court's landmark decision in Roe v. Wade -- although the...

    Pro-life laws are part of the reason abortion rates have declined over the past two decades, a study says. A review of abortion data from 1985 through 2005 provides “solid evidence” that laws restricting but not outlawing abortion “have an impact on the childbearing decisions of women,” Michael J. New wrote in State Politics and Policy Quarterly, a peer-reviewed publication aimed at state policymakers. Mr. New, an assistant professor of political science at the University of Alabama, studied the effects of informed-consent laws, Medicaid funding rules and parental-notification laws for minors — rules that existed, by 2005, in dozens of...

    New Jersey has the second- highest rate of abortion in the nation, surpassed only by New York, according to a study to be released today.  About 34 abortions were performed in New Jersey in 2005 for every 1,000 women ages 15 to 44, compared with a national rate of 19, the Alan Guttmacher Institute reported. That translates to 61,150 abortions in New Jersey and 1.21 million across the nation.The survey of abortion providers, which has been conducted every few years for decades, is widely viewed as the most complete study of the incidence of abortion in the country. New Jersey...

    Dear Colleague, One of the old chestnuts of the pro-abortion movement has turned rotten. They say laws against abortion result in higher maternal mortality. New statistics direct from the UN indicate they couldn't be more wrong. In fact, it seems pro-life nations actually have lower maternal mortality rates. This information must be used immediately by everyone concerned about this issue but particularly by those in countries where abortion is against the law: Ireland and Poland especially. Spread the word far and wide. Yours sincerely, Austin Ruse President Action Item: Read the report here.UN Data Show Banning Abortion Doesn't Increase...
