Iowa Abortions Drop 30 Percent in Last Five Years as Planned Parenthoods Close

The number of abortions in Iowa has dropped 30 percent in the last five years and a pro-life group says they will fall further if the state bans the practice of webcam abortions.

The Planned Parenthood abortion business installed the webcam abortion system in 2008 in part because it was having problems getting abortion practitioners to come from other states regularly to do abortions. But that hasn’t raised the number of abortions.

In fact, one study found that abortions are declining in the state even as Planned Parenthood does more.

From a report:

Planned Parenthood of the Heartland installed the system in 2008 to allow its doctors in Des Moines to dispense abortion pills to women in clinics around the state. The system made abortions available in towns where no one else offered them. But it did not make abortions more common, state data show. In fact, the numbers have dropped from 6,649 in 2007 to 4,648 in 2012.
