Louisiana Abortion Statistics

While 8,097 abortions is 8,097 too many, Louisiana Right to Life was thankful to see the number of abortions in Louisiana decrease by 7% from 2017 to 2018, according to preliminary figures provided to Louisiana Right to Life recently by the Department of Health.

There were 8,097 abortions performed in Louisiana in 2018, down from 8,706 abortions reported in 2017, 8,972 abortions reported in 2016, 9,362 abortions reported in 2015 and 10,211 abortions reported in 2014. The number of abortions performed in the state had increased steadily from 2008-2014 before the decline began.

Even with numbers going down, on average, 22 abortions per day were performed in Louisiana, and Louisiana Right to Life will continue working hard to reduce these numbers until every baby is saved!

NOTE: Abortion Statistics in Louisiana come from the Louisiana Department of Health.  These numbers do not take into account the number of women who traveled outside of Louisiana for abortions.
