Kansas Abortions Drop 2.4 Percent as 164 More Babies Saved From Abortion

The Kansas Department of Health & Environment (KDHE) today reported a 2.4% drop in total Kansas abortions for 2016, compared to 2015. 6,810 abortions were registered with KDHE last year (including 20 obtained by Kansas women in other states), a drop from 6,974 abortions in 2015.

There were two encouraging stats. Fewer Kansas abortions were obtained by girls under age 16 (46 in 2016, 55 in 2015), and the category of ‘filings of physical, mental or emotional abuse or neglect’ decreased to 4%, down from 6% in 2015.
