The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has released its annual “abortion surveillance” report, showing that abortion rates are falling and are at their lowest in decades, but with at least 600,000 babies still losing their lives each year.
“A total of 664,435 abortions were reported to CDC for 2013,” the organization wrote, outlining the latest year on record.
The figure equates to 200 abortions for every 1,000 live births, and is down five percent from 2012, when 699,202 abortions were reported. It is also half of the rate in 1980 and the lowest since 1971, prior to the passing of Roe v. Wade.
