PLANNED PARENTHOOD 2011
In 2011, Planned Parenthood reported performing 333,964 abortions for the year 2011-2012, according to their annual report. (Source: Planned Parenthood annual report 2011-2012 – released June 2012)
As of the date this post was published, Planned Parenthood released 2012 and 2013 abortion figures.
2013 – 327,653
CDC – 2011
The CDC Abortion Surveillance Report dated November 28, 2014 reveals that in 2011 730,322 abortions were reported to the CDC down 35,329 from 2010 stats.
The CDC excludes abortion data from some states like California which performs a huge number of abortions nationwide.
2011 CDC Black Abortions – Total 146,856 (36.2%)
Among the 27 areas that reported cross-classified race/ ethnicity data for 2011 (Table 12), non-Hispanic white women and non-Hispanic black women accounted for the largest percentages of abortions (37.2% and 36.2%, respectively), and Hispanic women and non-Hispanic women in the other race category accounted for smaller percentages (19.7% and 7.0%, respectively). Non-Hispanic white women had the lowest abortion rate (8.0 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and ratio (132 abortions per 1,000 live births), and non-Hispanic black women had the highest abortion rate (29.7 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and ratio
(459 abortions per 1,000 live births).
According to the stats 7.3% of unborn babies killed by abortion were between 14–20 weeks’ gestation and 1.4% were 21 weeks’ gestation or greater.
That means that, according to CDC numbers:
53,313 unborn babies were aborted between 14-20 weeks
10,224 were 21 weeks or greater.
But, a chart published by the CDC for 39 states that reported abortions by gestation (520,304 of the 730,322 abortion reported) in 2011 show that in those 39 states:
335,748 abortions were performed at less than 8 weeks
139,775 abortions were performed at 9-13 weeks gestation
17,952 abortions were performed at 14-15 weeks gestation
9,795 abortions were performed at 16-17 weeks gestation
9,709 abortions were performed at 18-20 weeks gestation
7,325 abortions were performed at 21 weeks gestation or greater.
According to the CDC, “Deaths of women associated with complications from abortions for 2011 are being investigated as part of CDC’s Pregnancy Mortality Surveillance System. In 2010, the most recent year for which data were available, 10 women were identified to have died as a result of complications from known legal induced abortions. No reported deaths were associated with known illegal induced abortions.”
However, pro-lifers continue to document women killed from legal abortion here.
In 2011, Guttmacher, whose stats were released in March of 2014, reports that 1.06 million abortions were performed. Does not break down by race !
But a Facts on Abortion sheet Guttmacher published in July in 2014 – race is mentioned:
( July 2014)
Non-Hispanic white women account for 36% of abortions, non-Hispanic black women for 30%, Hispanic women for 25% and women of other races for 9%
