Abortions By Ohio Women Are At An All-time Low

The Ohio Department of Health reports that induced abortions dropped 12 percent last year, hitting the lowest number since the state started tracking them 35 years ago.

The number of overall Ohio births also has fallen, 16.5 percent from 1990 to 2010.
