abortion numbers: "Multiple abortions are the norm, not the exception. According to the survey, where the 'number of previous abortions was adequately reported,' 53 percent of women had an abortion for the first time in 2000. That means 47 percent of women having abortions in 2000 were not having their first abortion. How many abortions do women have? The survey breaks it down by state, but stops counting at 'three or more previous legal induced abortions.' In 2000, Maryland had the highest percentage of women having their fourth (or more) abortion: 16.7 percent. New York City had the second highest ratio, with 14.7 percent of women having at least their fourth abortion in 2000."
