  2. Thanks for the post. I find your choice of words regarding the decline in abortion stats interesting – i.e. “abortion uptake is decreasing .” To me “uptake” suggests services are freely available and that women are choosing not to use them or don’t require them. I imagine it’s more likely that availability and access have declined as a result of state-based restrictions. This is underscored by your points on the declining number of providers and the situation in Texas. I suppose an increase in contraceptive access and usage could also have resulted in the decline in abortion stats, but I’m not up-to-date with that data. I don’t believe any major advances have been made recently, though we could see exciting things in the near future as a result of this initiative: / Thanks again, Naomi
