The number of abortions in Indiana decreased in 2015, the latest data point in a six-year decline.
Last year, nearly 8,000 abortions were performed in Indiana, a 2 percent drop from the year before, according to annual data from the Indiana State Department of Health.
Abortion rates have declined in the state since 2009. That roughly lines up with national data showing fewer people undergoing the procedure since 2010.
But Indiana Right to Life President Mike Fichter said, in Indiana, the state’s political climate has a lot to do with the trend.
