Data Estimates 10,000 Children Saved So Far By Dobbs Decision

FiveThirtyEight revealed data Oct 30 showing that there were 10,670 fewer legal abortions in the two months after Dobbs than were predicted by pre-Dobbs estimates.

The data was collected by another pro-abortion organization called the Society of Family Planning.

In FiveThirtyEight's breakdown, the organization writes,
“In all states that saw declines in their abortion numbers — which include the 15 states in which abortion was banned or severely limited over the summer — the number of abortions fell by about 22,000. Some of those women appear to have traveled out of state, because in other states, the number of abortions rose by an aggregate of about 12,000. But nationwide, the movement of abortions from states with bans and restrictions to those with fewer restrictions on access wasn’t enough to make up the shortfall.”

Pro-life state legislation that became enforceable due to the repeal of Roe v. Wade appears to have made a difference. The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute reported that 100 days after the Dobbs decision, at least 66 clinics stopped offering abortions.
