Delaware Abortion Facts

From the Delaware Right to Life site--

Delaware Abortion Facts
Did you know?
Delaware is #1 in the nation in teen abortions (19 and under)
Delaware is #2 in the nation in the rate of abortion (21 per 1,000 women)
Delaware is #1 in the nation in infant mortality rates
More than half of all abortions in Delaware are repeat abortions
42% of abortions in Delaware are performed on black women
Approximately 5,000 abortions are performed each year in Delaware
Approximately 1/3 of all abortions are performed on out-of-state women

* statistics are from the Centers for Disease Control and Alan Guttmacher Institute and reflect the year for which they are most recently available - 2003

Delaware takes its "First State" motto a bit too seriously, methinks. These are not areas in which we should covet first place.

Also, among the upcoming events on the Delaware Right to Life calendar--

Thursday, October 12 is the night of DRTL's Annual Banquet, an evening of good food, wonderful company, and inspiring speakers. This year's special guest is Day Gardner, Media Specialist at the National Pro-Life Action Center in Washington, D.C. and director of the newly founded National Black Pro-Life Union. Gardner, a former Miss Delaware, will speak on the genocide of blacks by abortion. Be sure to send in your reservation!
