    That figure sounds like BS to me. Unless one in three women in the US have had abortions.

      According to this paper, there are about 1.35 million abortions per year in the U.S., counting only legal abortions. As far as rates go, they estimate that for the U.S.: About 26% of pregnancies end in abortion, which comes to about 23 abortions per 1000 women per year, or about 0.69 abortions per woman over a lifetime.

      (Not quite the same as giving what % of women will have an abortion, because some women have none while others have multiple, and the raw numbers given here aren't enough to distinguish that.)
