The approximate number of legal abortions performed by licensed physicians and attended by qualified medical personnel in 2005 was 1,350,000. The number of illegal abortions would obviously not be available. Abortion has always existed in the US and every country in the world. The only difference in countries where it is legal is that it is available to all women and not just those who could afford it. The upper income and wealthy have always had access to safe abortions. Roe vs. Wade simply allowed all women regardless of their economic or social status to make the same private choices about their bodies.
