Abortion in America

"In the United States, about half of all pregnancies are unintended; of all unintended pregnancies, 4 in 10 are aborted." — Operation Rescue

"On average, women give at least 3 reasons for choosing abortion: 3/4 say that having a baby would interfere with work, school or other responsibilities; about 3/4 say they cannot afford a child; and 1/2 say they do not want to be a single parent or are having problems with their husband or partner." — AGI

"Women give an average of 3.7 reasons why they are seeking an abortion including the following: 21% Inadequate finances; 21% Not ready for responsibility; 16% Woman’s life would be changed too much; 12% Problems with relationships, unmarried; 11% Too young and/or immature; 8% Children are grown; she has all she wants." — Operation Rescue

"Induced abortions usually result from unintended pregnancies, which often occur despite the use of contraception." — Centers for Disease Control

"The U.S. has one of the highest abortion rates (19.4 per 1,000) among western industrialized nations." — Operation Rescue

"Some 80 percent of Americans believe that third-trimester abortions should be illegal — but only 19 percent of Americans say that they could only support a candidate who shared their views on abortion, while 28 percent say that abortion is not a major issue to them and about half say that it is one important issue among many." — National Review

"Oral contraceptives, the most widely used reversible method of contraception, carry failure rates of 6 to 8% in actual practice." — NAF

"40% of minors having an abortion report that neither of their parents knew about the abortion" — AGI

"In 2010, 80.5% of reported abortions were accomplished by curettage, which are suction procedures that include dilatation and evacuation. Medical abortions made up approximately 17.8% of all abortions reported." — CDC

"51% of U.S. women obtaining abortions are younger than 25; women aged 20-24 obtain 33% of all U.S. abortions, and teenagers obtain 18%" — AGI

"37% of women obtaining abortions identify themselves as Protestant, and 28% identify themselves as Catholic." — AGI

"Blacks comprise only 13% of the population of America but account for 37% of all abortions; Black women are five times more likely to abort than white women." — Operation Rescue

"Less than 1% of all abortions take place because of rape and/or incest." — Operation Rescue

"Planned Parenthood, the largest seller of abortions in the United States, has located 80% of its abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods, disproportionally targeting minorities for abortion." — Operation Rescue

"In 2009, the average cost of a nonhospital abortion with local anesthesia at 10 weeks of gestation was $451." — AGI

"In 2011, 17% of legal induced abortions occurred in California." — AGI
