CDC: "In 2008, 12 women died from complications from known legal induced abortions"

May not seem like a lot, but we and others have long thought that one is too many, and it has been shown in the past that such reporting isn't always recording what is truly attributable to abortion. Not by a long shot.
"Deaths of women associated with complications from abortions for 2009 are being investigated under CDC's Pregnancy Mortality Surveillance System. In 2008, the most recent year for which data were available, 12 women were reported to have died as a result of complications from known legal induced abortions. No reported deaths were associated with known illegal induced abortions."
As published in the MMWR Surveill Summ. 2012 Nov 23;61(8):1-44, Abortion surveillance--United States, 2009.

Since 1969, CDC has conducted abortion surveillance to document the number and characteristics of women obtaining legal induced abortions in the United States.

Each year, CDC requests abortion data from the central health agencies of 52 reporting areas (the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and New York City). The reporting areas provide this information voluntarily. For 2009, data were received from 48 reporting areas. For the purpose of trend analysis, abortion data were evaluated from the 45 areas that reported data every year during 2000-2009. Census and natality data, respectively, were used to calculated abortion rates (number of abortions per 1,000 women) and ratios (number of abortions per 1,000 live births).

[Many kudos to Christina Dunigan for keeping her very important blog "Real Choice" going after all these years. Her research and reporting is invaluable. If you want to know the truth, of course.]
