What important abortion information are we lacking?

Because of the poor quality of abortion reporting in the United States, many important facts about abortion remain uncertain or unknown. This includes the exact number of abortions each year, the number of women injured or killed by abortion, the number of late term abortions, the number of women receiving abortion pills through the mail, and the number of infants born alive during abortions. While some of these figures can be estimated, more robust abortion reporting is desperately needed.
