@Unthinking Majority 60 million abortions. They were not babies. You are making an argument based entirely on belief and emotion.
Researchers suggested that increased use of long-term birth control, such as intrauterine devices and contraceptive implants, contributed to the most recent decline. In particular, the proportion of clients at federally funded family planning clinics who sought such methods increased to 11 percent in 2014 from 7 percent in 2011. Because women who rely on these clinics are disproportionately young and poor and account for a majority of unintended pregnancies, researchers said, even a moderate increase in reliance on these methods could have an effect on the abortion rate.
The impact of restrictive anti-abortion laws and the shuttering of clinics on abortion rates was unclear. For example, the abortion rate rose modestly in six states: Kansas, Arkansas, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina and Vermont. Yet between 2001 and 2014, with the exception of Vermont, all of these states introduced more restrictive abortion laws.
