Decrease in Abortions in Indiana

Michigan is among just two states with increases in abortions, partly due to women coming from Ohio, where several abortion clinics recently closed. Abortions rose by 18.5 percent in Michigan between 2010 and 2014. Louisiana is the other state where abortions increased, according to an Associated Press tally of 45 states compiling data. 

The number of abortions performed in Indiana has fallen nearly 20 percent in recent years, a rate steeper than what's been seen nationally. State Department of Health figures show the decline occurred from 2010 through 2013, when slightly more than 8,000 abortions were reported. A survey by The Associated Press found a national decrease of about 12 percent during the same period.
