In 2005, there were 1.2 million abortions in the US, compared to 341K appendectomies, 398K gall bladder removals, and 575K hysterectomies.
Nearly one in three women will have an abortion by age 45.
87 percent of counties in the US have no abortion services (we have one in my city, just down the road).
And abortion providers decreased by 1121 between 1982 and 2005.
In my opinion, this is too few providers, and too many abortions.
I don't believe that most women want to get pregnant and then have an abortion. Some do, because the baby will be damaged and not live. But most get pregnant accidently and then have the abortion. We need to get birth control methods into their hands, and keep the religious folk from making so many women have abortions. Abstinence is impossible for most, and you can't blame the women and not the men. (Let's see that happen in the health reform!)
