Abortion Statistics

Would you be proud of 5,660 human lives lost in a single year from a single cause? That is the number of unborn children killed by abortion in Wisconsin in 2015. The picture isn’t all bleak, however, because that number is a more than 70% decrease from the all-time high of 21,754 performed in 1980.

  • Wisconsin’s abortion rate, the number of abortions performed per 1,000 women of childbearing age, is 6. The national abortion rate is 16.5.
  • Wisconsin’s abortion ratio, the number of abortions per 100 live births, is 10. The national abortion ratio is 21.
