In 1997 the Guttmacher Institute estimated the number of abortions in the U.S. past 24 weeks to be 0.08% which then was about 1,032 abortions performed to save the life of mother and child/year. There are overall less abortions performed today in 2012 but and we might be better and making a diagnosis but the number is probably about the same today, about 1000 women.
