Study: Abortion Rates Down in U.S.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that overall abortion rates were down 3 percent in 2010. However, their new report also found that even with this decrease, Black women still had the highest abortion rates (31.8 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and 90 percent of them were single women.
