A new study shows that the rate of abortion in the U.S. has dropped to its lowest level since the mid-1970s.
The survey, conducted by the Alan Guttmacher Institute, found declines in every measure of abortion — the total number, the percentage of women who had abortions and the percentage of pregnancies that ended in abortion.
It also found a rise in the use of the abortion pill mifepristone, also known as RU-486.
