Abortions Drop 4.4% in 2012, Fight Continues



The number of abortions performed in 2012 in Wisconsin was the lowest since Roe v. Wade, decreasing 322 to 6,927.

Of these abortions, 86% were surgical and 14% were chemically induced. The rate of chemically induced abortions decreased 10% over 2011. (Click here to read the rest of the report from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.) 

This 10% decline in post-implantation chemical abortions could in part be attributed to Wisconsin Act 217, legislation enacted in April 2012 that effectively prohibits RU-486 video-conference abortions by requiring the prescribing physician to perform a physical exam of the woman and to be physically present in the room when the abortion-inducing drug is given.

Women aged 20-24 accounted for the largest proportion of women who reported abortions at 34%. Of those who obtained abortions, 294 were minors. 80% of women who obtained abortions were unmarried.

The increased presence of Pro-Life Wisconsin’s sidewalk counselors and volunteers, along with participation in campaigns such as 40 Days for Life, outside of abortion clinics helps women choose life for their child. Online initiatives like our crisis pregnancy and sidewalk counseling mobile website enable women to find the help and support they need to care for their preborn child.

While Pro-Life Wisconsin is encouraged by the decline in abortions across the state, fewer abortions is not the ultimate goal for which we fight. Not even a single abortion is acceptable, and the slaughter of innocent life on a mass scale must be ended once and for all in Wisconsin.

Our goal is to completely abolish assaults on the dignity of the human person in our state—whether they be chemical or surgical abortion, embryo destructive research, or euthanasia. We will not rest until this is accomplished!

Donate today to support our courageous sidewalk counselors, and our efforts to abolish abortion through personhood!

Answer the Call




Emma Scuglik, Pro-Life Wisconsin's Development Director, shares her experience outside an abortion clinic recently.

Going to pray outside the abortion clinic is never comforting experience. But this past weekend, it disturbed me in a new way. It stirred my heart, and I feel called to tell others about the experience.

As I was approaching Affiliated Medical Services on Farwell Avenue in Milwaukee, the sight was familiar. There were two small clusters of people on the sidewalk praying, with a few people holding signs.
