OHIO'S CRITICAL

NOVEMBER 2023 ELECTION

Pro-life organizations across Ohio were devastated by the results of the November 7, 2023 Election.   Ohio voters passed Issue I, (55.68% “yes”  vs.  44.32% “no” votes), and now our State Constitution is amended to enshrine abortion rights for every individual.     Despite this setback, pro-life groups in Ohio are committed to assisting women and children in Ohio and working for their safety.    At this point, many Ohioans are wondering if Ohio will be pushed down the same path that Michigan is being pushed after Proposition 3 was passed there last year.    See more details about this on our "Legislative" - "Regional" Page.

OHIO INDUCED ABORTION STATISTICS FOR 2022

Statistics from the Ohio Dept. of Health for Induced Abortions Performed in Ohio for 2022 (the latest data available) are now available at this link:   https://odh.ohio.gov/wps/wcm/connect/gov/ae63c3e4-8564-4f39-b76c-045390612a47/VS-AbortionReport2022.pdf?MOD=AJPERES 

 

Please keep in mind that termination of an ectopic pregnancy to save the mother's life and spontaneous miscarriages or stillbirths are not considered to be "elective abortions."   

Some excerpts from the 2022 "Summary" by the Ohio Dept. of Health report include:

8.2% of women who obtained abortions in 2022 were under 20 years of age

29.5% were between the ages of 20-24 years of age

81.5% of women who obtained abortions in Ohio were never married, divorced, or widowed 

11.5% of women who obtained abortions in Ohio were married or separated 

Of all resident women who obtained abortions and for whom race was reported -

43.1% were White;
48.4% were Black;

3.1% were Asian/Pacific Islander;

5.1% reported more than one race

5.8% of women with known ethnicity who obtained abortions were of Hispanic origin

The 2022 Ohio abortion rate was 7.8 per 1,000 resident women ages 15-44 years old, a decline from the 9.3 rate in 2021.

The 2022 Ohio resident abortion ratio was 134 abortions per 1,000 live births, a decline from the 160 ratio in 2021

65% of all induced abortions in 2022 involved pregnancies of less than nine weeks

22.5% involving pregnancies of nine to 12 weeks 

342 abortions in 2022 involved pregnancies of 19 or more completed weeks of gestation -- that represents a decrease from the 486 reported in 2021. 

 

The vast majority of reported abortions were obtained in six major metropolitan areas of Ohio

Curettage was the second most used method of pregnancy termination in 2022 (42%).  That method has
decreased since 2001 when 87% of terminations were by curettage. 

 

Mifepristone was reported as the medication for non-surgical termination for 8,966 abortions, followed by 3,997 terminations using Misoprostol, and 7 terminations using Methotrexate.  Based on this:   12,970 Ohio babies died by "pill abortions" / "chemical abortions" alone in 2022.   Additional Ohio babies died in 2022 by surgical abortions.

In  Seneca County alone, 49 babies whose mothers resided in Seneca County were aborted in 2022.   This is an increase compared to the 36 Seneca County babies who died in 2021 from induced abortion.  This is a 36% increase in just 1 year!

Viewers may want to review the entire report to see how their particular county did in 2022.   We have left the link to the previous year's report (statistics fro 2021) for your comparison.

OHIO ABORTION STATISTICS FOR 2021
Statistics available from the State of Ohio (2021 data) Induced Abortions Performed in the State of Ohio was published in September 2022.   Please keep in mind that termination of an ectopic pregnancy to save the mother's life and spontaneous miscarriages or stillbirths are not considered to be "elective abortions."   
 
Did you know that 36 babies whose mothers listed Seneca County as their county of residence lost their lives in 2021 by abortion?  That's as much as a whole classroom of children missing in the future from our Seneca County schools and and businesses.

Margie Christie
of Right to Life Action Coalition said this about the losses from induced abortions in Ohio during 2021, "These are catastrophic numbers from which our communities will never recover,"  she adds.   ACCESS THE FULL REPORT STATISTICS FOR 2021:  HERE
