Newest date just released: Indiana abortions fall to 46 in fourth quarter of 2023

by | Mar 5, 2024

The newest data released by the Indiana Department of Health on February 29 lists a total of 46 abortions in Indiana in the fourth quarter of 2023, the lowest fourth quarter totals in over 50 years.

“While we are encouraged abortion numbers fell in Indiana to the lowest fourth quarter numbers in five decades, we grieve the loss of 46 children and renew our commitment to making Indiana a state where every pregnant mother receives compassionate support and every baby’s life is protected,” said  Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter. “Many serious challenges remain, including the fact that the Indiana Department of Health is blocking public access to terminated pregnancy reports.”

Fichter concluded, “This manipulation creates a lack of transparency, making it impossible to verify these numbers are accurate – and that Indiana law is being followed related to abortion activity. We urge the Indiana legislature to act now by requiring IDH to follow the law in abortion reporting.”
