According to Kessel E. Mumford in the National Center for Biotechnology Information, “No nation desirous of reducing its growth rate to 1% or less can expect to do so without the widespread use of abortion.”
- “Developed countries will need to maintain abortion rates generally in the range of 201-500 abortions per 1000 live births if they are to maintain growth rates at levels below 1%.”
- “The current rate in the USA is 426 abortions per 1000 live births.”
- “A high contraceptive prevalence is essential as well in order to achieve growth rates below 1%.”
- “To avoid a world with deteriorating social, economic and political stability, with the concomitant loss of personal and national security, we must ensure that safe abortion is made available to all who wish to use this service.”
