U.S. Abortion Rates are Dropping Thanks to Young People!

Abortion rates have declined by 12 percent nationwide in America since 2010, and pro-life groups say changing attitudes among the younger generation could be the cause.

“We’re seeing the attitudes shift,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of the group Students for Life of America, which conducts pro-life outreach on college campuses. “People are talking about abortion differently.”

Abortions rates have declined in almost every state since 2010, with only two states seeing significant increases since then, according to a survey by the Associated Press.

The biggest declines took in Hawaii – a 30 percent decrease – and New Mexico, Rhode Island, Nevada, and Connecticut, all with over a 20 percent drop.
