Abortions in Minnesota reach 30-year low

From Duluth News Tribune:

The number of abortions in Minnesota dropped to a 30-year low in the first full year after the state passed a 24-hour waiting period for women seeking abortions.

Abortion opponents and supporters of legalized abortion disagreed Tuesday whether the decline could be attributed to the waiting period. The law, which supporters call Women's Right to Know, requires that women receive specific information from their doctor before an abortion.

The number of abortions in 2004 dipped to 13,788, the lowest level since 1975, the first year the state Health Department started tallying the numbers. The department has been reporting annual abortion figures to the Legislature for the past five years.

Let's put that into perspective — the lowest number of babies murdered in 30 years is still over four times the number of people killed in the 9/11 attacks. I'm sorry, but this is kinda like a condemned man being told he's going to still be hung — but with a brand new rope. Minnesota is still murdering babies, but at a slightly less obscene rate than in previous years. Pardon me if I don't get all a flutter over this “wonderful” news.

I guess there is sort of good news in the report. Statistics gathered indicate that with the new 24-hour waiting period as many as 2,000 women who initially sought abortions decided to not murder their babies. Planned Genocide, of course, is outraged that 2,000 babies slipped through their bloody fingers.
