95,876 surgical abortions in Canada

Statistics for Canada’s abortion rate in 2009 have been released by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), and the 2007 and 2008 reports have been revised. There were 93,755 surgical abortions in 2009, a slight decrease from the 2008 rate of 95,876. However, the real number of abortions is probably higher, as only hospitals are required to report their numbers. Also, data for abortion facilities in British Columbia is incomplete, and Ontario and Québec only report abortions covered by their provincial health plans.
