Abortion Rates Lowest Since 1969; Millions Across Africa Displaced by Violence (UCNN 12/09/16)
1 day ago
Baptist Press - The number of women and girls undergoing abortions in the United States dropped by one-fifth between 2004 and 2013, a new report shows. While the report shows the abortion rate is the lowest it’s been since 1969 when the government started tracking the procedure, the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission urged a bit of caution in its news release, The Weekly. While expressing optimism with the report, they also noted the study relies on information provided voluntarily and is missing reports from three states. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released its 2013 abortion surveillance in late November. It shows a 20 percent drop in total abortions since 2004, another tick in the decades-long downward trend. Pro-life leaders appear to see the new data as more proof the pro-life movement has changed public opinion about abortion.
