The numbers have increased from 1 in 3 to closer to 1 in 2.

Forty percent of American women have abortions by the time they're 45.


No. That's wrong and I'm surprised that you would quote an article when there is actual evidence available.

http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/journals/j.contraception.2011...

42 percent of unintended pregnancies end in abortion and about half of all pregnancies are unintended.

It's more like 22 percent not including miscarriages.
