Abortions Down 25%

The abortion rate in America has dropped 25% from its peak. But a study by the Guttmacher Institute, a New York-based nonprofit that focuses on reproductive issues found that women are choosing medication rather than surgical clinics to terminate pregnancy.

The study does not attribute the decline to any specific reason. It was released just days before the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling legalizing abortion. (LAT)
