Good News on Abortion

Abortion is declining world-wide, reports the Alan Guttmacher Institute in a press release today.

Where both abortion and contraception are easily available and legal, fewer abortions are occurring--only (?) 41.6 million in 2003 compared to 45.5 million in 1995.

But unsafe abortion is still causing the deaths of 70,000 women per year.

70,000 too many.

"...In much of the developing world, abortion remains highly restricted, and unsafe abortion is common and continues to damage women's health and threaten their survival," reports Sharon Camp, president and CEO of the Guttmacher Institute.
