Table 103. AbortionsNumber and Rate by State of Occurrence: 2000 to 2008 [Number of abortions by state of occurrence from surveys of hospitals, clinics, and physicians identified as providers of abortion services conducted by the Guttmacher Institute]
(Excerpt) Read more at census.gov ...
U.S., State of occurrence, Number
2000 2005 2008
1,312,990 1,206,200 1,211,500
15,240 16,780 17,030
Last time I looked, it was around 60 million abortions since 1972 - true infanticide.
Oh how sad! This is an awful list to read—I was stunned at the numbers in California alone.
I cannot fathom this level of killing of the unborn. Is our society so numb to LIFE that we condone this so readily? Where are the hearts that are shocked and stunned by this?
And, especially when today all across America our hearts are so sad at the terrible tragedy in Connecticut. Think of how many potential 5 & 6 yr olds could have been alive if they weren’t aborted and just a mere statistic on this list?
God forgive us...
Obama and his Marxists don’t shed tears for the millions taken by abortion or even those who survived the procedure and were left to die on some hospital table. Those they celebrate but use the slaughtered children to promote their ongoing grab for more power. These people have presided over almost as many ‘murders’ as the NAZIS did in their “Camps”.
Abortion data is always incomplete and not accurate. Reporting requirements differ and many numbers are estimated. Look at Washington DC for example and the enormous change in the data for 2008. That is probably incorrect.
I long for a conservative on the national stage to ask the following in front of the cameras:
“Who gets to decide which unborn babies deserve the death penalty? What capital crime has an unborn baby committed that is worthy of capital punishment?”
Have them say it that way and make the libs defend their position.
Yesterday alone twice as many kids in CT were killed by their mothers and doctors as were shot in Sandy Hook Elementary.
No tears from the politicians??
Great poster. Hadn’t seen this before.
Congratulations WY with the lowest rate of abortions. I declare you the center of civilization.
I just made it about an hour ago. Share whenever possible.
Now THAT hits home.
Michigan liberals are screeching again because the governor signed a bill that requires any clinic that performs more than 120 abortions per year must be licensed and have an actual doctor physically on site. They claim its an attack on women’s rights.
Meanwhile teachers have to be certified to teach in public schools because the leftist unions demand it. Tattoo artists and house painters have to be licensed.
Or, don't the Liberals want to tell the race that voted 90% plus for them in the last two Presidential elections what they are doing to themselves?
For being in the “information age,” we certainly have a dearth of complete and accurate info on subjects that are not in the interests of the collectivist “politically correct” left.
Looking at the state numbers, I see that there was a drop in abortions across the board it seems in 2005, and back up again in 2008. Wonder what happened in 05 to make it drop?
In fact, the abortion rate went DOWN in 34 states + D.C.!
Between 2000 and 2008, the abortion rate only went up in
four Northeastern states (DE, CT, Maine, NH);
one eastern state (PA);
three Southern states (LA, GA, TN);
three Midwestern states (IA, SD, ND);
plus three Western states (NM, Alaska, Hawaii).
(With two of those western states -- Alaska & NM, the abortion rate, tho IS declining slightly since 2005).
(It stayed the same rate in Utah and Maryland)
In Connecticut, the abortion rate went up 3.5% since 2000.
And the states MOST hostile to the pre-born abortion %-wise...not overall carnage-wise due to heavier populations -- like California, for example...even though in some of states the abortion rate is going down???
2. New York
3. New Jersey
4. D.C. -- and Maryland
So, East Coasters...look at that hostility to the Sanctity of Life you lead the nation in!!!!
I think leadership has something to do with the waning and waxing of wickedness. Bush, for all his faults, was a morally-based born-again Christian who hated abortion as far as I know. Although I think Obama is a born-again Christian, I don't believe he has the same kind of moral compass.
The numbers are still horrific for any of the years, however, with only slight variations, really.
Thank you for this outstanding post!

“I cannot fathom this level of killing of the unborn.”
Yes, yesterday I had the joy of holding my six-weekold granddaughter again for the first time in more than a week. I just marveled at how perfect every little part of her was! The idea that any woman would want to kill something as precious as that makes me want to cry! We are a sick society in more ways than one! Sometimes I wonder if God has given up on us!
This is cold; but somewhere in that group of bereaved parents is one or more who had an abortion before or after the child they just lost. Talk about regrets....
