(Worthy News) – Liberal alarm in the U.S. over the future of Roe v. Wade may have never been higher, thanks to the leak of a draft opinion this week, but the outcry comes as the nation’s rate since the 1973 case was decided has never been lower.

After peaking in 1980 at 29.3 procedures per 1,000 women, the U.S. abortion rate has steadily declined, falling in 2019 to a historic low of 11.4, below the 13.5 per 1,000 women in 1973, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in a November report.

From 2010 through 2019, the number of reported abortions fell by 18% from 762,755 to 629,898, while the population increased by about 20 million. The abortion rate decreased by 21% among women ages 15 to 44. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
