Abortion rates go down when countries make it legal: report
Countries with stricter abortion laws have higher abortion rates
by Maggie Fox
Abortion rates have fallen over the past 25 years, even as more countries have made the procedure legal and easier to get, according to a new report released Tuesday.
Countries with the most restrictive abortion laws also have the highest rates of abortion, the study by the Guttmacher Institute found. Easier access to birth control drives down abortion rates, the report also finds.
