Only 1 in 5 Kids Killed Before Birth: Obamabortion

President Obama's health agency reports that America's rate of abortion has dropped SO MUCH that only 18% of the nation's offspring suffer the death penalty in the womb -- ONLY three-quarters of a million annually.  Suffering from the mid-term elections, abortion advocates lament further pro-life legislation, but the liberal media is optimistic that the abortion business will increase as the economy improves and/or as ObamaCare foots the bill.

-- From "CDC: 18% of all pregnancies end in abortion; 730,322 is a new 'low'" by Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner 11/28/14

. . . according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention . . . it was an "historic low."

The latest figures are from 2011 and show a downward overall trend in abortions since 2002, especially among younger women. But the numbers are up among women 25 and older, with a big jump among women over 40, said CDC.

. . . 10 women died as a result of having "legal induced abortions," said the CDC.

The report is titled "Abortion Surveillance — United States, 2011," and was released Friday.

From "CDC: 18 Percent Of All Pregnancies Now End In Abortion" by Sarah Hurtubise, Reporter, Daily Caller 11/28/14

The vast majority of women who choose to abort are unmarried — 85.5 percent. The proportion of unmarried women who have an abortion has actually increased, while abortion has fallen overall — in 2001, 81.7 percent of women who had an abortion were unmarried. These women are much more likely to be young — 57.8 percent were in their 20s — although the abortion rate for women above 40 who go through with an abortion is showing a “small yet persistent increase.”

The race of the victims is disproportionately skewed as well. Non-Hispanic black women had the highest rate of abortion — for every 1,000 black women between the ages of 15 and 44 years, 29.7 had abortions in 2011. Non-Hispanic black women accounted for 36.2 percent of all abortions that year; non-Hispanic white women accounted for 37.2 percent.

. . . While the CDC noted that the abortion rate dropped from 33 percent to 18 percent in the decade before the [ObamaCare] contraceptive mandate, it’s sole recommendation to further lower the number of abortions only discussed no-cost birth control.

From "Recession led to U.S. abortion rates approaching all-time low, CDC reports" by Cynthia H. Craft, The Sacramento Bee 11/30/14

Since 2008, as the recession took hold, women revealed to researchers they were determined to avoid unwanted pregnancies because of worries over the cost of raising children. The ensuing collapse in the housing and job markets persuaded many women to be extra vigilant about using safe and reliable birth control methods, analysts said.

Overall, Guttmacher’s research found that 29 percent of surveyed women agreed with the statement, “With the economy the way it is, I am more careful than I used to be about using contraception.”

“More women and couples were using highly effective, long-acting, reversible methods such as IUDs,” Jones said. “They wanted to avoid or delay pregnancy and childbearing.”

Against that backdrop, early-pregnancy abortions through medication – referred to by some as “the abortion pill” – are steadily increasing, the Guttmacher report said.

From "The coming wave of anti-abortion laws" by Paige Winfield Cunningham, Politico 11/28/14

The big Republican gains in the November elections strengthened and enlarged the anti-abortion forces in the House and the Senate. But it’s the GOP victories in the statehouses and governor’s mansions that are priming the ground for another round of legal restrictions on abortion.

Abortion rights advocates have had setbacks in the states for several years, with a surge of legislative activity since 2011. Women seeking abortions may face mandatory waiting periods or ultrasound requirements. Clinics may face stricter building codes or hospital admitting privilege rules they can’t satisfy. Dozens of clinics have shut down in multiple states. Texas, for instance, has fewer than 10 abortion clinics now. A year ago, it had 40.

Republicans now hold two-thirds of the state legislative bodies, after winning control of 11 more chambers. They completely control the legislature in more than half the states, adding Nevada, New Hampshire and West Virginia to that list earlier this month. And they gained two more governor’s seats, so they will hold 31 next year.

Republican leaders who will control the U.S. Senate come January say they want to take up abortion this year, perhaps on a House-passed bill that would limit the procedure after 20 weeks. But the reality is that Senate Republicans will still fall a few votes shy of the 60 needed for controversial major legislation. It’s the states where Republicans can enact more abortion limits.
