Indiana abortion rate continues to decline


But 289 girls and women from Allen County still received abortions in 2016 at one of Indiana's six remaining clinics, according to the latest state data.Abortions statewide dropped 8.5 percent last year compared with 2015.In raw numbers, Indiana women had 3,542 fewer abortions in 2016 than in 2008. Indiana's all-time high number of abortions was 16,505 in 1980, and the total was 7,277 in 2016.“I think women are more aware of what the abortion procedure is and I think they are making different choices,” said Cathie Humbarger, executive director of Allen County Right to Life. “Women who have made an abortion decision telling their stories has been significant.”Allen County hasn't been home to an abortion facility since late 2013 when Dr. Ulrich Klopfer closed his facility because of not having a required backup doctor with admitting privileges.
