Minnesota Abortion Rate Declines


The latest statistics are out, and the abortion rate in the state of Minnesota has once more decreased.

Via The Pioneer Press:

The number of abortions performed in Minnesota fell again in 2010.

There were 11,505 abortions in the state during 2010 – a decline of 7 percent from the 12,388 abortions performed during 2009, according to a report released today by the Minnesota Department of Health.

It was the fourth consecutive decline in annual totals since the recent peak of 14,065 abortions in 2006.

The abortion rate is at its lowest since records began being kept, but may be adjusted later once the total population numbers for 2010 are released.
