An op-ed by TxPEP's Dr. Daniel Grossman appears today in Newsweek. In the piece Grossman addresses new data showing a 14% decline in the Texas state abortion rate. While part of this may be due to decreased demand, as the national abortion rate did drop 4% largely due to increased use of IUDs and implants, it is very likely that part of the decline is due to barriers to abortion care, out-of-state abortion, and self-induction.
