Abortions Are Largely Used For Birth Control According To Florida Study

Can't people who support babies and Pinterest get along?

The people over at Planned Parenthood will not like these results.

A new study done on abortions in the state of Florida in 2018 show that the vast majority of abortions are done for reasons that have nothing to do with rape, incest or health of the mother. According to the story over at the National Review


Data from Florida reveal that, in 2018, an overwhelming majority of women reported obtaining an abortion for reasons other than to preserve their own life or health, or due to fetal-health complications.

Women obtained about 70,000 abortion procedures in Florida last year, and more than three-quarters of those were classified as having been “elective,” meaning that the women did not provide a reason for having obtained the procedure. Another 20 percent of those abortions were classified as having been chosen for “social or economic reasons.”

Of those 20 percent, the breakdown was this…

*Less than 1.5 percent of the abortions were for the physical health of the mother.

* Around One percent of the cases involved serious fetal abnormalities.

* .14 percent were because of rape.

*.01 percent were because of incest.

What this concludes is that less than 3% of abortions in this study were done for the reasons that pro-abortion forces claim to be the overwhelming need to make sure abortions are provided.

The fact of the matter is that abortion is being used as a method of birth control. The argument that Planned Parenthood and others have used that it is not is useless. Why does it matter what the reason is also if you are just entrenched in the view that abortions are perfectly fine and it is no one’s business? This is yet another flaw in the argument of people who believe abortion should be done anytime and anywhere.


The abortions fights are rolling from that state houses to the courthouses and will land on the steps of the Supreme Court soon. This study will go a long way to debunking some of the talking points of the pro-abort forces.

Buckle up.
