Neb. Abortions Drop to 20-Year Low


Fewer Nebraskans are getting abortions as numbers have hit a 20-year low.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services reports that number dropped to less than 2,500 last year. That's a large drop in comparison to 1992 numbers when more than 5,600 abortions were reported.

Officials say part of the decline is likely due to a 2010 Nebraska law that bans abortions starting at 20 weeks into a pregnancy.
