According to an annual abortion census the U.S. has experienced “dramatic changes in the abortion landscape.” The abortion rate is the lowest it has been since 1973 when abortion was effectively legalized by the Supreme Court. A review of the census argues that the data depicts a U.S. population that is trending more toward life both in terms of opinion as well as behavior.
Since 2011 the abortion rate declined 20%. More impressively, since 1980 the rate plummeted 53%. The review points out that the population is turning its back on abortion as a solution. One pointer is how unintended pregnancies are handled. In 1981, 54% of unplanned pregnancies were aborted compared to 42% 30 years later. This seems to demonstrate the long term effectiveness of pro-life efforts to help at risk mothers and educate the public.
