Over 930,000 abortions were carried out in the United States in 2020, according to a new estimate by the pro-choice think tank Guttmacher Institute, signalling an increase from three years earlier.

More than 930,000 fetuses were aborted in 2020, according to the report’s results, an increase of 8% over the 862,320 abortions carried out in 2017.

The rate of abortion among women aged 15 to 44 increased by 7% between 2017 and 2020, rising from 13.5 to 14.4 abortions per 1,000 females.


According to Guttmacher, a former affiliate of Planned Parenthood, one in five pregnancies resulted in abortion in 2020. The abortion ratio increased from 18.4% to 20.6 per cent between 2017 and 2020, which is a 12 per cent rise.

The rate of abortion increased nationwide between 2017 and 2020, particularly in the West (12%), the Midwest (10%), the South (8%) and the Northeast (8%) (2 per cent).


The research center reported that between 2017 and 2020, there was a 6 per cent reduction in births, using statistics from February from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The findings, in Guttmacher’s opinion, suggest that fewer women were becoming pregnant at the time while a greater percentage of expecting mothers chose to have an abortion.

The Institute also argued that the 2019 “Protect Life Rule” of the Trump-Pence administration, which barred abortion providers like Planned Parenthood from receiving federal tax funding, was to blame for the rise in abortions. Joe Biden, the president, changed the law in October of last year.

According to Guttmacher, the Trump administration reduced these programs’ ability to provide contraceptive care, which led to an increase in unintended pregnancies and abortions since there was allegedly a lack of access to free or inexpensive contraception.

But according to Michael J. New, an associate scholar and researcher at the pro-life Charlotte Lozier Institute, the abortion rate had already increased in 2019 before Planned Parenthood left the Title X funding.

In contrast to 2018, when the abortion ratio and rate of reported abortions increased by 3 percent and 2 percent, respectively, the total number of abortions increased by 2 percent in 2019, according to the CDC’s Abortion Surveillance report.

New claimed that the rise in chemical abortions is related to the higher abortion rate in a statement to The Christian Post, warning that the Guttmacher data “should concern pro-lifers.”

54 percent of abortions in the United States in 2020 were ascribed to chemical abortions, according to statistics from the Institute that was cited in February.

After the Food and Drug Administration permanently dropped the in-person dispensing rule for abortion pills in 2021 after a temporary lift during the COVID-19 epidemic, New reported that chemical abortions are now “easier to get.”

The associate professor also noted that places like Maine and Illinois, which both approved laws to cover elective programs through their state Medicaid systems, had more permissive abortion regulations than other states.

Unsurprisingly, New added in the statement, “the abortion rate jumped by 28 percent in Illinois and by 15 percent in Maine. There were more out-of-state women seeking abortions in Illinois, which contributed to the state’s increase.

The state Medicaid program’s decision to start paying for elective abortions in 2018 undoubtedly contributed to the rise in the abortion rate, he continued.
