Number of abortions in Minnesota continues to fall

Abortions in Minnesota dropped to a 30-year low of 13,362 last year. That's the lowest number since 1975, when the Minnesota Department of Health started tallying abortions. The decline continues a 26-year trend of mostly falling figures since the number topped 19,000 in 1980. Minnesota's numbers are in line with a national trend toward fewer abortions.

A state law on the books since mid-2003 requires women seeking abortions to get information about fetal development and medical risks of the procedure and wait 24 hours before the abortion. [snip] Star/Tribune

Not a reason to cheer, necessarily, but certainly a reason to work even harder against the killing of the unborn.
