(Worthy News) - Of the 47 states that reported their annual abortion numbers to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, New York had the highest rate, ratio and overall number of abortions, according to a newly released CDC report.
But, over the last ten years on record (2007 through 2016), the total number of abortions in the 47 states that have consistently reported their abortions to the CDC has declined by 24 percent.
The abortion numbers come from the CDC’s “Abortion Surveillance—United States, 2016,” which was published by the CDC’s “Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report” on Nov. 29. [ Source: CNS News (Read More...) ]
