Abortion Rate Declines With Teen Pregnancy In United States

A recent survey obtained by the Associated Press stated that abortions have declined in the United States since 2010.
The survey stated that a 12% decrease has been observed in both liberal and conservative states.
One factor contributing to the decline is the fall in the teenage pregnancy rate.
The national teen pregnancy rate reached its lowest mark since the early 1970s during 2010.
Supporters of abortion rights also claim the fall in terminations is due to increased access to contraceptives; while opponents believe more women are carrying unplanned pregnancies to term.
