BREAKING: Ohio Abortion Report Released

Though abortion numbers are going down, it’s by a very slight margin. For that, we can thank sidewalk activists and prolife legislation. To break it down, the most important issues is total of babies killed, top reporting counties, race breakdown and ‘complications’.

Wish the news was better, 304 lives spared, compared to 2015. But here’s the short story:

TOTAL ABORTIONS: 20,672 [2016]; 20,976 [2015]
WHITE ABORTIONS: 49.1% [2016]; 49.7% [2015]
BLACK ABORTIONS: 44% [2016]; 43.7% [2015]
MONTGOMERY COUNTY: 11.4% [2016]; 12/4% [2015]

In Montgomery County, 4 abortions were performed on children less than 15 years old; 5 AbortionReportMontCoRace2016the previous reported year. Also, 3 less total abortions were performed in the same county from the previous year. The state total for abortions on children less than 15 years old is 76 statewide.

It is also important to note that minority women are aborting much more often than white women. According to US Census, just under 13% of Ohioans are black but make up for 44% of all abortions.

Also, 32 abortions reported with complications, or botched; 98 abortions with post abortion complications.
