5,377 Fewer Abortions Per Month Since Dobbs Decision: Report

A new report indicates there have been 5,377 fewer abortions on average each month in the first six months after the U.S. Supreme Court decision on abortion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case.
The Society of Family Planning (SFP)—a non-profit organization that studies “abortion and contraception science” and has argued (pdf) for increased access to abortion medications—published a report (pdf) on Tuesday detailing the impact that the Dobbs decision has had on abortion throughout the United States.
SFP determined there were 32,260 cumulative fewer abortions between July to December 2022, based on a comparison of abortion trends before and after the Dobbs decision. That estimated reduction in abortions comes out to approximately 5,377 fewer abortions on average each month.
