Teen abortions down massively

The latest abortion stats are here. They show another year of decline (which is good). What I find interesting is the vast drop in the number of teenagers having abortions.

It peaked at 4.277 in 2007 and 10 years later in 2017 it was 1,444. That is a drop of 66%. In the two years since then it has dropped to 1,238 – a further decline of 14%.

In terms of overall abortions, the ratio of abortions to live births peaked at 24.7% in 2003 and in 2017 was 18.1% and in 2019 17.7%.
