America's Abortion Rate Continues to Decline December 12, 2016 by Staff

Just when we need it, there's good news from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding one of the hottest social issues of our day: The numbers of abortions are declining. According to their latest report 664,435 abortions were reported to CDC in 2013. And there has been a 46 percent drop in girls aged 15-19 who've had an abortion. Some will claim credit this is due to widely available birth control. But pro-lifers point to the 2500 Pregnancy Care Centers across the nation that help women in at-risk pregnancies. The also point to shifting public opinion of abortion and enactment of pro-life laws like ultrasound and informed consent. More than half a million abortions are still too many. For a culture built on the right to life, there's still much to be done.
