Abortions declining in many U.S. States. Why?

Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, PhD, Praying In Jesus Name: "The Centers for Disease Control released its national abortion report on Friday and the new figured show the number of abortions in the United States has declined to a historic low. From 2010 to 2011, the total number and rate of reported abortions decreased 5% and the abortion ratio decreased 4%, and from 2002 to 2011," reports LifeNews.

"Although 730,322 babies lost their lives in abortions in 2011, the latest year CDC has produced figures for, that represents a decline of about half since the highs of more than 1.5 million in the late 1980s, when the effect of legalizing abortion in 1973 finally took its full effect..."

"The data also indicates abortions are down on younger women — making it clear that efforts to provide abortion alternatives to teens and college students has paid dividends.

"Although there is much good news in the latest report, the numbers also show that abortions are up among older women, especially among women over the age of 40 — who may be increasingly using abortion as a form of birth control."

 It is likely that over-the-counter availability of plan-B abortion pills, and wider prescription use of RU-486 and other "kill your baby at home kit" drugs are replacing surgical abortions as top choice, but these are just as deadly.

Let's ask Congress to define life beginning at conception:
