INTERPRETING THE REPORT - EDUCATION AND AGE

Having posted the Official Abortion Report for abortions performed on Guam in calendar year 2017, we will be taking a look over the next few posts at what the numbers mean.

One of the big myths about abortion is that it happens most with the poor and uneducated. However, as the report shows, the highest number of abortions were procured by the college educated. 


Another myth is that it is mostly young or high school age girls who procure abortions. Since 2008, when Esperansa first began accessing the abortion data, the reports have consistently shown that this demographic is the least likely to procure an abortion.
