A report published by pro-abortion organization Society of Family Planning found that since the U.S. Supreme Court’s Dobbs ruling which overturned Roe v. Wade, there have been more than 32,000 fewer abortions in the U.S.  The report notes that many women who lived in states with strict restrictions on abortion did not travel to more abortion friendly states but decided to give birth.  Family Research Council director Mary Szoch said, “The news that across the country over 5,000 fewer abortions have occurred each month since the Dobbs decision is cause for the pro-life movement to celebrate.  Fewer babies are being killed and fewer mothers are being exploited by the abortion industry.”  However, the report found an increase in chemical abortions, raising concerns because the drugs used have not been well studied and are easier to obtain illegally.
