Description

"The U.S. abortion rate began to decline again from 2008 to 2011, a new study says. But the researchers say there's no evidence that the new crop of state laws intended to restrict access to abortions is the source of the drop. An estimated 1.1 million abortions were performed in 2011, a rate of 16.9 per 1,000 women ages 15 to 44, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive-health think tank that has conducted a periodic survey on abortion since the 1970s. That's the lowest rate since 1973, when the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade made abortions legal in all states. Both the abortion rate and the number of abortions fell 13% between 2008 and 2011."* The Young Turks hosts Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola break it down. *Read more here from Eliana Dockterman / Time: http://healthland.time.com/2014/02/03/abortion-rate-lowest-since-1973-study/ ********** The Largest Online News Show in the World.
