Abortion rates fall to their lowest levels in the US

Abortion rates in the US have dropped to their lowest levels ever. It is being speculated that this is due to the role played by the use of contraception and fewer pregnancies, rather than state laws that restrict abortion. Between 2011-2017, the number of abortions per year decreased by 200,000.

Likeliest explanation is that overall rates of women getting pregnant has dropped; increased working hours and overall lower rates of child births would seem to be corraborating evidence of this. Not that I am complaining; abortion is an evil thing that I would strongly prefer to see abolished.
