A new report shows the abortion rate in the U.S. is at its lowest level since a landmark Supreme Court case on the issue more than 40 years ago.
The latest national survey of abortion providers says the number of procedures fell 13 percent between 2008 and 2011, and reached the lowest levels since 1973.
That was the same year as Roe vs. Wade, the court case which lifted many state restrictions on abortions.
The report also says New York and Maryland had the highest abortion rates, while Wyoming and Mississippi had the lowest.
The study was conducted by the Guttmacher Institute, which supports abortion rights.
