By law the Vital Statistics Branch must publish Ky’s abortion statistics for the calendar year by September 30. The 2019 Report shows an increase of 460 abortions at the EMW clinic over 2018. This increase may reflect that the Abortion Pill Reporting Requirements Law was passed in 2019.
Hospital abortions would be those to save the mother’s life, we assume.
The Report shows that women ages 20-24 have the most abortions with those 25-29 a close second place.
Black Lives Matter?
Of the 3,664 abortions in Ky in 2019, 1248 or 34% were for black women.
College-educated women led the way in numbers of abortions: 1,866 with 1-4 years, and those with 5+years had 243.
For a close count of abortions done at EMW in 2020, see the reports from the sidewalk counselors transcribed by KRLA on this website.
