NARAL citations not enough on their own[edit]

Not only is the NARAL citation not returning anything valauble but it's also incredibly biased. Does anyone know of any official/more neutral stats that may be better? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pseudoskepsis (talkcontribs) 13:43, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

Utah miscarriage bill[edit]

Might want to add this to the article; just search for "Utah miscarriage" on Google News. Sceptre (talk) 07:01, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

need reference - biased[edit]

The article currently reads "In comparison to other developed countries, the procedure is more available in the United States in terms of how late the abortion can legally be performed." Such a statement requires a reference - there is none. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.53.109.183 (talk) 13:34, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

NARAL rating[edit]

It seems POV to include a partisan rating in with all of the information about these state laws. We could either include a similar pro-life group or include neither. My preference would be to include neither and just talk about the laws. Anyone else have any thoughts? Juno (talk) 00:06, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes. WP:BIASed. Throw out. NARAL is just one organization. There are hundreds, so it may be WP:TRIVIA as well. What laws are in affect where are more important.
A practical point: I could not see the end of this table on my screen (which is enlarged, I confess). So it was "off the end" and transparent to me. Tables shouldn't contain too many columns. That one seems to. Student7 (talk) 21:06, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Citations/references to NARAL Pro-Choice America page don't (currently) contain any information[edit]

The percentages of abortion providers per county in the state table all go to the state-specific pages on the NARAL Pro-Choice America website, but all of these pages simply say "Information on the position of the state government and on state laws will be available soon." At the time of writing, these are not providing any kind of figures or information whatsoever. Perhaps this is temporary if they are revamping their website or something.

"% of Counties Without Provider" in State table[edit]

Considering the number of counties per state vary and are not comparable between states, it seems rather misleading to report on the number of providers as a percentage per county. In Connecticut the figure is lowest (13% without a provider), but they have just 8 counties in the entire state, so having just 7 providers across 7 counties leaves 1 county (12.5%, rounded to 13%) without a provider. In Nebraska the figure is at 97% without a provider, but they have 93 counties, so they have 3 counties with a provider and 90 without. This doesn't say anything about how many providers they even have in those 3 counties or how much of their population they can serve. Wouldn't it be more useful to report it as providers per capita?
