Abortion Statistics

Statistics on abortion are derived from two basic sources:
The Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI), up until 2007, a research division of Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), located in Atlanta, Georgia.

Causes of Death

There were approximately 926,200 abortions performed in 2014, according to Guttmacher Institute.
Now compare these numbers to the 15 leading causes of death in 2009 (preliminary data from the CDC) AND to the number of American war casualties (from the Navy Dept. Library)
