NRL News Today - April 3, 2017
A preliminary report released Tuesday by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment [KDHE] says there were 6,782 abortions in 2017, the lowest number in 30 years.
“The 6,782 reported abortions in 2017 is the fewest in the state since 1987, when there were 6,409,” reported Jason Tidd of the Wichita Eagle. “The number was as high as 12,445 in 1999 before dropping to 6,810 in 2016.”
KDHE’s “Abortions in Kansas, 2017, Preliminary Report” is 36 pages long and, as noted in the beginning, “State law requires that physicians and hospitals report abortions they perform to KDHE.” (The Woman’s Right-to-Know Act.)
