Pro-abortion researchers from the Guttmacher Institute are pleased to see abortion numbers up from 2017 to 2020, as it indicates (to them) that more women are exercising "bodily autonomy." Of course, this ignores the bodily integrity of the child who is killed in an abortion, but they don't go anywhere near those thoughts.
The numbers went up among women 25 and older by 11%. This isn't good news, but it does suggest that the numbers for all abortions will eventually go down. Younger women are having fewer abortions. Women under 20 had only 8.5% of all abortions in 2020. It is likely that a significant proportion of women who did not have abortions when they were younger will not have them when they get older, too. More babies will live.
