Abortions Drop Despite Pause on Ban
March 17, 2023 | Indiana
Abortions in Indiana spiked in the months following the Dobbs ruling, but the number of procedures happening across the state has since dropped nearly 50%, according to newly released state data.
The first three months after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Indiana clinics submitted an average of 1,048 terminated pregnancy reports each month, according to Indiana Department of Health (IDOH) data obtained by the Indiana Capital Chronicle.
But those abortion reports dropped sharply between October and January, averaging just 552 terminations per month. That is well below monthly averages for previous years. (Excerpt from Indiana Capital Chronicle.)
