Abortion contraception statistics – News headline

abortion contraception statistics

At the Wilson Center in late October 2013 there was a conference on Facing the Challenge of adolescent pregnancy.

Today Good Counsel Network learned of a further drop in abortion statistics in the USA from RTE news. It would be tempting to become jubilant, especially when it is headlined by RTE. However, statistics often paint the picture that you want it to. So Good Counsel Network Ireland decided to go to the source of the newsworthy report and extract those facts that might not otherwise be made known. At the heart of the worldwide reporting on lower USA pregnancy termination rates is the Guttmacher abortion statistics. The report was just released on Saturday 1st February 2014. It makes for both encouraging, and discouraging pro-life news.

What are the encouraging abortion contraception statistics?

There does seem to be a strong indication that abortion procedures are in decline in the United states. According to the Guttmacher institute, from January 1st of this year, over 50% of US states have sanctioned enforceable health regulations on pregnancy termination centres. There is mandatory counseling with a focus on considering birth. Women now have to discern over longer periods, before going ahead with an abortion. There is also mandatory parental involvement in cases of juvenile pregnancies. The use of state Medicaid funds have been restricted to cases of rape or life threatening situations. With all these combined regulations, the abortion industry is finding it difficult to survive. Good Counsel Network volunteers will no doubt be encouraged by these developments. But this picture does not give a fair shade of the battle against abortion in the US.

What is the discouraging statistics

The abortion contraception statistics report seem to reveal a trend towards less abortion we agree. But this may be the result of highly developed contraceptive methods. The morning after pill is still abortion, but might not be considered as such in the Guttmacher report. While pregnancy termination statistics are reported as lower, the patient base seems fairly high. The abortion contraception statistics suggest that over 50% of American women will have an abortion. That is a significant number of women affected by what is a brutal health procedure. Good Counsel Network volunteers will have to continue the fight to reduce these figures. That said, the pro life voice is getting louder & louder.

Women today are often sold the idea of having a free choice, yet so many make the same bad choice on the back of pressure from peers who do not have their best interests at heart. Many women choose abortion and find themselves having later regrets. They have to live the consequences and conceal this aspect of their life. Those who advocate abortion for these vulnerable women do not have to live with the choice of terminating their pregnancy. They do not have to live with future complications in reproductive health and they do not have to brood over what may have been.
