Abortion Reporting: Maryland

Last updated: February 9, 2023

 

Maryland does not collect or report abortion data.

Until 2006, the Maryland Department of Health maintained a voluntary abortion reporting system. Maryland’s reports cautioned that the “State of Maryland has a voluntary abortion reporting system, so the data contained in this report are incomplete. The number of facilities submitting data can change from year to year, making comparisons over time unreliable. The quality of the data is uncertain because no independent verification has been done.”

After 2006, Maryland discontinued its abortion reporting system. In response to an inquiry from the Charlotte Lozier Institute in August 2018, the Maryland Department of Health informed CLI that

“Maryland does not require reporting, or record information, on induced terminations. Therefore the Vital Statistics Administration does not produce reports on these events.”

The Centers for Disease Control’s 2006 abortion surveillance report was the last to include Maryland data.

Other Available Information

In 2020, Maryland state Medicaid spent $6.5 million to pay for at least 9,864 abortions. More information is available here.

The Guttmacher Institute estimates that 30,750 abortions were performed in Maryland in 2020.
