Interesting Abortion Statistics

These charts show the percentage of pregnancies ending in abortion, state by state. They've divided it up between state of occurrence and state of residence (of the mother, I'm presuming). All in all, it looks like abortion is declining everywhere but in the big cities (namely, LA and New York). Look especially at the county breakdown at the bottom of the page. The state of residence maps seem more helpful to me, because I like to see whether certain States' laws form the minds of pregnant women wanting abortions. But I can see how the state of occurrence maps can also be helpful to see where people are going for their abortions.
