Video Text/Dialogue:

On November 23, 2012, the Centers for Disease Control released new federal abortion data for 2009.

Compared with 2008, the number and rate of reported abortions decreased by 5%.

It was the largest, single-year decrease in a decade.

Compared with 2000, the abortion total decreased by 6%, the abortion rate decreased by 7% and the abortion ratio decreased by 8%.

That's the good news.

Here's the bad news.

There were an estimated 1.21 million abortions in 2008.

Drop that number by 5% and you still get 1.15 million abortions.

That’s 3,150 abortions every day.

As we celebrate the 5% who were saved…

May we not forget the 95% who perished.

Today is a good day to stand up for abortion-vulnerable children.

Because there’s still a long way to go.


California, Delaware, Maryland, and New Hampshire did not provide abortion data to the federal government for 2009. The numbers in this video reflect the 45 reporting districts who did provide abortion data for each of the last 10 years. The 1.21 million abortions reported for 2008 comes from the Guttmacher Institute, who has not yet released 2009 data.
