Kentucky State Vital Statistics for ABORTION in 2021 are now online. By law, the state must post vital statistics for abortions done the previous year no later than September 30 following the end of the fiscal year.
The 2021 statistics were posted on September 30, 2022. As you can see, there were 4,441 abortions in our Commonwealth in 2021, up from 4104 in 2020. The link to the full report is here.
The Census.gov website screenshot below shows Kentucky population statistics. You will note that Kentucky has only 8.6% Black or African Americans as of July 1, 2021, YET this small percent has 34% of the abortions for 2021! Do Black Lives not Matter? There were 107 more abortions on Black Kentuckians in 2021 than in ’20, or 1,525 over 1,418.
The 2022 numbers should be fewer due to the closing of the abortion clinics after the Roe decision and some subsequent litigation.
DO WE WANT TO RETURN TO ABORTION ON DEMAND? In 2021 there were 243 Dismemberment Abortions! THE WORST TYPE!
