Wisconsin Right to Life Applauds a 10% Wisconsin Abortion Decrease

Wisconsin Continues its Astounding Abortion Decline

“As the trend of the steep abortion decline in Wisconsin continues, Wisconsin Right to Life is again taking the lead in ensuring women and children have a chance at celebrating the gift of life,” shared Heather Weininger, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life. “The 2014 released abortion numbers reveal there were 662 fewer abortions in 2014 than in 2013. This represents a 10% decrease in one year, and many lives saved from the pain of abortion!”

The newly released Department of Health Services Reported Induced Abortions in Wisconsin report shows there were 6,462 abortions performed in 2013 and 5,800 in 2014. Some significant statistics from the report are:

  • 83 abortions were performed after the fifth month of pregnancy (when an unborn child is capable of feeling pain)
  • The number of abortions performed on unmarried women dropped to 77% from 88.7% in 2013
  • Abortions obtained by African-American women climbed to 26%
  • 11% of abortions were obtained by Hispanic women, an increase of 2% over 2013 numbers
  • 19% of abortions were chemical

“Each woman who spares herself and her unborn baby from the pain of abortion is bringing great joy to those of us who work to change hearts and minds on the right to life,” continued Weininger. “We are proud that during this legislative session, Wisconsin Right to Life took the lead in promoting the passage of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and as we can see from the numbers from 2014, another 83 babies could have been saved. Wisconsin Right to Life will continue its multi-faceted programs to fuel the abortion decline so that even more unborn babies will have a chance at life.”
