New Hampshire Abortion Facts
State abortion stats by rate, rank, total, age, gestation, and procedure type.
State abortion statistics are collected privately by The Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI) and federally by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Because of reporting lag, the most recent data available is generally a few years old. It should be noted that four states (California, Delaware, 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.
