The Society of Family Planning, a pro-abortion rights group, released a report last Friday, finding that legal abortions across the United States decreased by 6% in the first two months after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on June 24. “The estimated number of abortions provided by a clinician decreased from 85,020 abortions in April 2022, before the decision, to 79,620 abortions in August 2022. This change represents a decrease of 6% in the number of abortions nationally, comparing April and August 2022″ the report said.
