The Ohio Department of Health released the 2022 abortions statistics. Tragically, in 2022, 18,488 women chose or were forced into abortion in Ohio. Abortions in Ohio for 2022 decreased by 15.24% from 2021. While this is substantial and represents a win for life, we still grieve for the thousands who never received a birthday, only a death day. We grieve for the mothers who carry the burden of the loss of life of their sons or daughters.
Adding to the tragedy, 342 late-term babies were aborted. These children felt pain as they were terminated in violence during the abortion.
According to the Guttemacher Institute, the research arm of Planned Parenthood:
- Only about one percent of second- and third-trimester abortions are performed for fetal anomalies, or eugenics
- One-third (31%) of the women surveyed said that they misjudged how far along they were
- One-fourth (27%) said that they found it hard to arrange an earlier abortion
- 14% said that they were afraid to tell their parents or their “partner”
- The rest gave reasons such as taking their time to decide or waiting for a change in their relationship.
Remember that Planned Parenthood claims that all partial-birth abortions are done for fatal birth defects or to save the life of the mother. It turns out that the actual number done for these reasons is about one percent. READ MORE FROM HLI
