Data just released by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute reports on the end of a long-term decline in abortions in the United States. According to Guttmacher, since the group’s last report issued in 2017, abortions have increased by nearly eight percent (7.87%), with one in five pregnancies ending in an abortion. In 2020, 930,160 abortions were committed nationally — an increase of 67,840 over the 862,320 abortions reported in 2017.

This means that today, approximately 2,548 babies are killed every day in the U.S. by abortion.


  • Abortions in 2020 (930,160) showed an increase of nearly 8% from 2017 — an increase of 67,840 lives lost.
  • The abortion rate in 2020 (abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44) climbed by 7% (from 13.5 in 2017  to 14.4  in 2020).
  • The abortion increase was accompanied by a 6% decline in births between 2017 and 2020.

The good news: 2020 abortions still remain lower than past years

  • Current numbers are 12% less than the 1,058,000 abortions reported in 2011 and 42% less than the 1,608,600 abortions committed in 1990.

  • The abortion rate has dropped by 15% since 2011 (16.9 to 14.4 in 2020) and by nearly 48% decrease from the 27.4 abortion rate reported in 1990 (27.4).

  • Between 1980 and 2020, the U.S. abortion rate has fallen by over 50 percent (29.3 to 14.4).

Let’s see a huge spike in the aborters dying from botched baby murder. Be nice if statistically 9 out of 10 baby murderers die during abort.

Abortions are a big money windfall for providers and politicians who get kickbacks for defending “pro-choice”.

Women who seek an abortion instead of birth control advice and help or offered the option of giving up their child for adoption at birth should be required by law to be permanently sterilized.
