Report: Abortions rise in Louisiana

(UNDATED) -

A new study shows Louisiana is one of two states where the number of people getting abortions is up.

The Associated Press crunched the numbers and reported the statistics found Louisiana and Michigan are the only two states where the number of abortions rose between 2010 and 2014.

The study stated Louisiana saw a 12 percent increase in the number of abortions performed.

Analysts believe women from other states come to Louisiana where new restrictions and clinic closures have limited abortion access.
