Between 1970 and today, there have been almost 50 million abortions performed in the US.
Almost one in every two abortions are performed on African American women, compared with only one in six among Caucasian women.
Women ages 20 to 24 obtain over a third of all abortions performed in the US. An additional 15% are performed on women under the age of twenty.
Together, that means that almost half of the abortions in the US are performed on women under the age of 24.
Based on current abortion rates, one in three women will have an abortion by the age of 45.
How the issue is perceived is almost a dead-split among Americans, with 49% favoring it remain legalized and 42% preferring it be outlawed.
I am the proud father of three kids, soon to be four. Although being a parent is perhaps the most challenging thing a person can do, I believe abortion is never the answer. We must protect the rights of children and the unborn. As Representative of the 39th district, I will support pro-life legislation.
