Abortion numbers fall in Wisconsin for 4th straight year

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The numbers of abortions in Wisconsin have dropped for the fourth straight year, and 9 of the last 10.

The state Health Services department said Wednesday that 6,521 state residents had abortions last year. That's 171 fewer than the previous year, and about 2,000 less than the 8,500 abortions Wisconsin had in 2009.

Officials said 215 girls under-18 had abortions in the Badger State a year ago. Adults consented in 186 of those cases. 17 had approvals by judges to waive consent requirements. 12 emancipated minors also had abortions.
