Abortion rate falls to lowest since 1973

New pro-life laws are being adopted coast to coast, and 2013 closed with 81 abortion facilities being shut down permanently across America.  But the fact that the abortion rate dropped to 16.9 abortions per 1,000 women ages 15-44 for 2011, the lowest since 1973, is completely unrelated. We know because officials with the Guttmacher Institute, the Planned Parenthood-allied organization, released a study on the decline in abortion, and study author Rachel Jones said, “Our study did not find evidence that the national decline in abortions during this period was the result of new state abortion restrictions. We also found no evidence that the decline was linked to a drop in the number of abortion providers.” Columnist Sally Kohn added emphasis to the idea that new pro-life laws, and clinics shutting down every few days, doesn’t impact the number of abortions. “To the extent that either side can claim any victory in this landmark, credit should go to reproductive rights groups, not anti-abortion activists,” she wrote. “In fact, foes of abortion have opposed most every single public policy that contributes to lowering the abortion rate in America.” But Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, senior fellow of Concerned Women for America’s Beverly LaHaye Institute, explained the reality of the situation. “This Guttmacher report bends over backward in trying to deny that record-setting pro-life legislation has made tremendous strides in curbing abortions in the United States,” she said. “Further, the authors try to convince the American public that suddenly couples are using contraception better and timing the spacing of their children better, all the while denying the concrete data showing that abstinence education is improving the future for the nation’s teens and common sense legislation is exposing the profit-centered motivation of the abortion industry.
