The US Abortion Rate Is at Its Lowest Level Since 1971

The number of abortions being performed in America is at a near-historic low. According to a report from the CDC, which is based on the most recent data from 2013, the last time the abortion rate was lower than it is currently was in 1971.

As the AP notes, the rate of abortions among women 15 – 44 in 2013 (12.5 per 1,000 women) is so low, that it is actually half of what it was in 1980.
