Is the Decline in Abortions an Indication of a Cultural Shift?


The Daily Signal reports on an AP story that found abortion rates are falling across the board:

Abortion rates continue to drop nearly everywhere in the United States—and by impressive amounts.

The Associated Press reported last week on a new survey of state health agencies that found abortions in 45 states had fallen by 12 percent since 2010.

The article suggest that Pro-Life efforts and technology may be helping turn public opinion:

The report continues a string of indicators, decades long, which suggest a steady move toward a culture of life. Millennials’ opinions about abortion are tracking the same way, an indicator perhaps, as The Boston Globe’s Jeff Jacoby pointed out last week, of “an empathy-driven reaction against abortion among the generation of Americans that grew up in a world of vivid ultrasound images.”

Against a frequently bleak landscape of cultural upheaval, America’s trajectory on the tragedy of abortion is an arc of bright contrast.

Conservatives can help continue efforts to build a “culture of life” by holding corporations accountable for supporting pro-abortion advocates such as Planned Parenthood.
