Resource Guide - Abortion

Almost half of US women have experienced an unintended pregnancy and about half of unintended pregnancies end in abortion.  In 2002, 1.29 million abortions took place, down from 1.36 million in 1996. Although improved access to contraception has decreased abortion rates, the availability of safe, legal abortion remains of vital importance to the health of women.  This resource guide provides links to US abortion data, guidelines for the provision of abortion services, access to abortion services and current research on abortion.
