Abortions in Minnesota inched downward in 2021, according to a report just released by the Minnesota Department of Health. A total of 10,136 abortions were performed in the state, a two percent drop from the 2020 total.
“Despite the challenges of the pandemic, abortions have not skyrocketed, and women continue to choose life and get the support they need in Minnesota,” said MCCL Executive Director Scott Fischbach. “Now, as we move into a post- Roe v. Wade era, it’s important to support and empower women and to enact commonsense protections for unborn children.”
Abortions in Minnesota have dropped 47 percent since their peak in 1980 but have leveled off in recent years. Chemical abortions, however, reached an all-time high of 6,154 in 2021—61 percent of all abortions in the state. While the abortion totals for the main abortion centers in Minnesota stayed level or slightly dropped, the abortions attributed to “independent physicians” rose significantly, perhaps reflecting the rise in mail-order abortions offered by an online abortion practitioner in Minnesota.
Planned Parenthood, which had increased its abortion total for nine consecutive years, saw a slight decline in 2021. The group still performed 70 percent of all abortions in the state.
“Chemical abortion drugs post real risks to women’s health, and those risks increase when the drugs are sent to women without any in-person medical evaluation first,” said Fischbach. “This is an area where Minnesotans can come together to protect women.”
The 2020 abortion total was updated after one abortion center failed to properly report its abortion numbers last year. The new 2020 figure of 10,339 represents a 4 percent rise over 2019 in the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic. The abortion rate, however, fell to 7.6 (abortions per 1,000 Minnesota women of reproductive age) in 2020, compared to 8.3 in 2019. The estimated rate […]
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
