Abortion Rate Soars for Gov't-Dependent Americans

Among Americans whose lives are most significantly dominated by government involvement (e.g.: women who earn $17,170 or less for a three-person household) the abortion rate rose by 18% between 2000 and 2008 -- a period during which government funding of "family planning" increased significantly, as well as myriad government intrusion in the lives of low income citizens.

-- From "U.S. abortion rate down overall but up among poor women: study" by Reuters 5/24/11

Abortion rates have inched lower in most groups of U.S. women, but not among poor women, where they are still on the rise, according to a study [by Planned Parenthood's Guttmacher Institute].

. . . the abortion rate among women with the lowest income -- below the U.S. poverty line -- climbed from 44 to 53 abortions per 1,000 in the same time period.

Those women accounted for 16 of every 100 U.S. women aged 15 to 44 by 2008, but for 42 of every 100 abortions.

From "Abortion Rate Down Overall, Up Among Poor Women" by Katie Moisse, ABC News 5/24/11

If the 2008 rates persist, it's estimated that almost one in three women in the U.S. will have had an abortion before the age of 45.

Although teens account for 24.8 percent of U.S. abortions, women over 25 represent 49 percent, according to the report. Almost 20 percent of women who have abortions have a college education, and 44 percent are married or living with their partners.

Planned Parenthood puts the the cost of an abortion during the first trimester at between $300 to $950 -- a fee many women front out-of-pocket because of a lack of insurance coverage, confusion about whether the procedure is covered or a desire for privacy.

From "Abortion rates decline overall, increasing in poor" by Sharon Jayson, USA TODAY 5/23/11

Randall O'Bannon, director of education and research for the National Right to Life Committee in Washington, says the abortion industry is profiting by performing more abortions on poor women.

"Women who have information and alternatives are choosing abortion less frequently than they did 10 or 15 years ago, but states are continuing to pay for the abortions of poor women. When the states are funding the abortions, they get these abortions," he says.

High rates were also seen for unmarried women who cohabit: 52 abortions per 1,000 . . .

The abortion rate among college graduates was substantially lower at 12.4 abortions per 1,000.
