October 30, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Yesterday, the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI), the research and education arm of Susan B. Anthony List, released a new, clickable online map highlighting abortion reporting data across the United States. CLI issued the following statement about this new resource:

“This groundbreaking State Abortion Reporting Map brings together Charlotte Lozier Institute’s comprehensive state abortion reports into one easy-to-use tool for our friends in the pro-life movement, researchers, journalists and policymakers, said CLI President Chuck Donovan, “The need for this map is great: with Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports lagging nearly four years behind, CLI has done the research into abortion trends in the states using the most recent existing state data and compiled it in a single place.”

“With no national abortion reporting mandate, it falls to states to voluntarily collect and aggregate data for the CDC, which means data is scattered and hard to find, said Tessa Longbons, CLI Research Associate, “With CLI’s new State Abortion Reporting Map, we make it easy to find where reports exist and where there are gaps in the data. As evident from the map, there are some states that are woefully behind in their abortion reporting data, while others like California do not collect or report data.”

Some basic facts about CLI’s State Abortion Reporting Map:

  • California, Maryland and New Hampshire do not collect or report abortion data
  • 22 states reported abortion data for 2018
  • 20 states reported abortion data for 2017
  • Four states reported data in 2016 or earlier

Ms. Longbons is CLI’s Research Associate and the author of Abortion in the United States 2017: A Preliminary Call to Reform, a comprehensive report looking at abortion data across the U.S. In addition to this report on Indiana, she has compiled individual abortion reports for 41 states and New York City, which are available online here.
