PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Data compiled by The Associated Press shows the number of abortions performed annually in New England is declining, echoing a nationwide trend. But at least two groups attribute the drop to different factors.
Between 2010 and 2013, Rhode Island saw the biggest decrease in abortions, from 4,181 to 3,251 — a 22.2 percent drop. Connecticut had the second-largest decrease, between 2010 and 2014, from 13,438 to 10,629 — a 20.9 percent drop.
