A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) finds that the U.S. abortion rate is at an all-time high, with more than 2.1 million abortions performed in 2020.
That is more than double the 2.0 million abortions in 2020 performed in 2015.
But the study also finds that, in 2020, nearly 2.6 million abortions were performed in rural areas, the lowest rate of abortions in the country.
While the rate of rural abortion was up a bit, the study finds that rates of abortions performed by urban residents have actually fallen in recent years.
Overall, more than 7 million Americans had abortions in 2019, a drop of more than 400,000 from 2020.
But rural women had the highest rates of abortion in the U: more than 673,000 abortions were carried out in rural counties, compared to just over 500,000 in urban areas.
The report, by the Center for Reproductive Rights and the National Abortion Federation, looked at the abortion data in the United States, the nation’s largest abortion-producing country.
The group looked at all abortions performed between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021, and found that more than 3.8 million were performed by women who had not obtained an abortion, and nearly 1.9 million were carried to term.
The rate of abortion-related deaths among women who received an abortion was more than 11 times higher than that of women who did not.
Rural women have the highest abortion rates in the nation, the report found.
The study also found that the number of abortions that were performed within the rural community dropped in 2019.
That decrease is attributed to a rise in rural abortions being carried to and from home, as well as to a decrease in the number and proportion of rural women who sought abortions outside the community.
The decline in abortions carried to home is likely because many women are moving away from rural areas.
For some people, abortion is a personal choice.
For others, it is a legal right, like a doctor’s office visit or a prescription for a medication.
And for some people who need abortions, it can be an emergency procedure.
The report found that among women living in rural communities, about 13 percent were seeking abortions because of a pregnancy-related health concern, and about 20 percent were considering abortion in a pregnancy involving a mental health condition.
The numbers for women living outside of the rural area are even higher: 19 percent were thinking about abortion in those communities.
“Our analysis shows that there is no clear relationship between abortion rates and other health conditions and that some women who are seeking abortions may be avoiding unwanted pregnancies or delaying pregnancy because of these health concerns,” the report concluded.
In 2019, more women were having abortions in rural America than in urban America.
The most populous counties were in North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana.
Among the poorest counties were Wyoming, Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama.
But among the poorest states were New Hampshire, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
While the number one reason for an abortion is the desire to terminate a pregnancy, the number is much lower for people who are having a mental or emotional health condition, such as depression, anxiety or PTSD.
The percentage of women seeking abortion in rural states has dropped from 22 percent in 2020 to 16 percent in 2019 in this population.
The remaining 12 percent of women were either seeking abortion for psychological reasons, or were seeking abortion to terminate their pregnancy.
The number of rural abortions in 2021 is slightly higher than the number in 2020 but not by a large margin.
The number of people seeking abortions in North Dakotans in 2019 was 5,853, and in the next three months it was 6,788, the last of which is the most recent year for which the JAMA data is available.
In 2018, the figure was 5.6 per 100,000 people.
According to the report, the rate for rural women has been on the decline in recent decades.
It noted that the rate decreased from about 12 percent in 1980 to less than 4 percent in 2016.
But, the authors noted, “in some states, the reduction is more dramatic.”
While the report does not examine abortion rates by race, the researchers note that the abortion rate for people of color has been dropping for decades.
In 2016, black women were at 17.6 abortions per 1,000 women, while in 2020 they were at 8.6.
In 2021, black abortions fell from 24.4 per 1.000 women in 2020 into 12.5 per 1 million in 2021.
However, the abortion rates for white women were the same in 2020 and 2021.
In 2020, they were 16.6 abortion per 1 1,100 women and in 2021, they fell to 10.4.
The overall rate of black women seeking abortions dropped from 29.4 abortions per 100 women in 2016 to 17.
