We strive to create a culture where every child is welcomed into the world and protected by law; where every pregnant mother receives the help she needs to face an unplanned pregnancy; and where every terminally-ill person has access to decent pain relief and is protected from being killed by euthanasia and assisted suicide.
2019 Ohio Abortion Report
On October 1, 2020, the Ohio Department of Health released the 2019 Ohio Abortion Report. The number of abortions in Ohio fell 2% in 2019, continuing a downward trend and dropping to its lowest level since the state began tracking
in 1976. There were 20,102 abortions performed in Ohio in 2019, 323 fewer than the previous year. This far outpaces any cause of death for children in the state of Ohio. Over the past two decades, Ohio has experienced a steady decline averaging about 960 abortions per year, the report said.
Ohio is down to nine abortion clinics, with only six performing surgical abortions, half the number of a decade ago.
There were 26 residents of Scioto County who obtained an abortion in 2019. This decreased by one from the 27 who obtained an abortion in 2018 and is 43 percent less than the number of 61 in 2009.
