From LifeNews:

Abortion numbers fell for the fourth straight year in Minnesota, according to the latest report issued today from the Minnesota Department of Health. The decrease follows a trend of fewer abortions statewide since the Positive Alternatives program began in July 2006.

The Positive Alternatives program provides alternatives to MN abortion programs, and focus on supporting, encouraging, and assisting women in carrying their pregnancies to term and caring for their babies after birth. This program is credited with bringing down total abortion numbers by 7%!

The annual Abortion Report shows a total of 11,505 abortions were done in Minnesota in 2010, more than seven percent fewer than the 12,388 done in 2009. The 2010 total is the lowest number on record since two years after the [1973] Roe v. Wade decision released by the U.S. Supreme Court struck down pro-life laws protecting women and unborn children across the country.
