Pennsylvania Abortions Are On The Rise, Along With Complications

Bridget Sielicki

A new report from the Pennsylvania Department of Health reveals that that in 2019, there were 654 more abortions in the state than in 2018. This marks the second year in a row that the state saw an increase in abortions, and the first time since 2001 that there was an increase in two consecutive years.

Altogether, 31,018 abortions were committed in the state in 2019, which means that an average of 85 babies died by abortion each day. The majority of those abortions were committed on women ages 25 to 29, and nearly 88% of the women were reported as unmarried. Over 47% of the abortions were committed on women who already had at least one prior abortion. The report also reveals that 44% of abortions were committed on Black women, though nationwide, the Black community comprises just 12% of the population.
