No, abortions are NOT rising under Bush

The Dems sure want you to think so, though. Here’s more:

Politicians from Hillary Clinton and John Kerry to Howard Dean have recently contended that abortions have increased since George W. Bush took office in 2001.

This claim is false. It’s based on an an opinion piece that used data from only 16 states. A study by the Alan Guttmacher Institute of 43 states found that abortions have actually decreased. Update, May 26: The author of the original claim now concedes that the Guttmacher study is “significantly better” than his own.

Guess those Republican policies weren’t that “draconian” after all, were they Mr. Kerry?
