Abortion Stats 101

When abortion became legal in 1973, the rate of abortion went up (nearly immediately), not down, despite what experts thought.

In 1972, a total of 24 women died from causes known to be associated with legal abortions, and 39 died as a result of known illegal abortions (CDC). In 2003, 10 women died from legal abortion.

Less than 1% of all abortions that were performed were to save the life of the mother, incest, rape.

90% of abortion clinics are in metropolitan areas; 75% of abortion clinics are in low income or poverty stricken areas.

The abortion ratios by state ranged from a low of 43 abortions per 1,000 live births in Idaho to a high of 770 abortions per 1,000 live births in NYC (CDC).

43% of all women 45 years old and younger are Post Abortive. Nearly half of them will abort again.

40% of minors having an abortion report that neither of their parents knew about the abortion (AGI).

Because doctors can now test an unborn baby for ‘abnormalities’, nearly 90% of unborn children that have Down Syndrome will be aborted.

Nearly half of pregnancies among American women are unintended; about 4 in 10 of these are terminated by abortion. Twenty-two percent of all U.S. pregnancies end in abortion. (AGI).

Black women are nearly 5 times more likely to abort than Caucasian women; Hispanic women are 2 times more likely.

43% of women obtaining abortions identify themselves as Protestant, and 27% identify themselves as Catholic (AGI).

1.2 million unborn babies dies each year in the US; 42 million each year worldwide; approx 115,000 per day.

Last year, over $363 million of taxpayers’ money went to Planned Parenthood.

Rev. K.H. says, “Keep in mind that the actual number of abortions are higher than what is REPORTED. As we all have gleaned from the Gosnell house of horrors in Philadelphia, the real numbers are much higher than anticipated. There are illegal abortion clinics all over the United States that do not report abortions; Gosnell’s clinic was just the tip of the iceberg. Do not be deceived – abortifacients prescribed by doctors are killing unborn babies, whether intentional or not.”

  1. It disturbs me that so many Down Syndrome babies are killed. I have a young cousin who is Down Syndrome, and it scares me so much to know that babies like her are aborted every day. And 22% of all pregnancies end in abortion? That’s insane! I pray every day that we will end abortion in our country and our world.
