According to new report by pro-choice think tank Guttmacher Institute, over 930,000 abortions were performed in the United States in 2020, indicating a spike from three years earlier.
The findings of the report, which was released last week, show that more than 930,000 pregnancies were terminated in 2020, representing an 8 percent increase from 862,320 abortions in 2017.
A 7 percent increase in the abortion rate was also seen among women ages 15-44, increasing from 13.5 percent per 1,000 women in 2017 to 14.4 percent per 1,000 women in 2020.
Guttmacher, a former Planned Parenthood affiliate, found that in 2020, one in five pregnancies ended due to abortion. This finding represented a 12 percent increase between 2017 and 2020, with the abortion ratio rising from 18.4 percent to 20.6 percent.
