Shocking Study Reveals 6% Drop in Abortions Since Roe v Wade Repeal: What’s Behind the Decline?

According to a new study, the number of abortions performed in the United States has decreased by 6% since the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade decision was overturned in 2022. The study examined data from 2022 to 2023 and found that there were 853,000 abortions during this period, down from the 907,000 reported in 2021. The decline in abortions was observed across all age groups and racial and ethnic categories.

The study also found that the decrease in abortions was largely driven by the increase in the use of contraceptives, which have become more accessible and affordable in recent years. Additionally, the study noted that the increase in funding for family planning programs and education efforts have contributed to the decrease in abortions.

However, some experts warn that the decrease in abortions may not necessarily mean a decrease in unintended pregnancies, as there may be an increase in the use of less effective forms of contraception or a decrease in access to healthcare services.

Despite the decrease in abortions, the debate surrounding abortion continues to be a contentious issue in the United States, with some states enacting laws to restrict access to the procedure while others have sought to expand access.
