The Pennsylvania Abortion Control Act was passed in 1989 (due to the determined efforts of Rep. Steve Freind from Havertown, Delaware County) but was held up by court injunction until 1994.
This resulted in the sharpest drop in the daily abortion rate. It dropped more than 22% in four years.
As a result, Pennsylvania was among the nation’s leaders with the third-fastest declining abortion rate in the nation.
