State Abortion Facts

Comparative state abortion stats by rank, total, percentage, and clinics.

Collective state abortion statistics are gathered privately by The Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI) and federally by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Because of reporting lag, their most recent data is generally a few years old. In most cases, state-level abortion facts are more current than the numbers reported by AGI or the CDC. Click on the state names below for the most current abortion statistics available. Also remember that three states (California, Maryland, and New Hampshire) did not provide abortion data to the federal government for the last reporting period, and AGI (the research arm of Planned Parenthood) openly advocates abortion.
