Spinning Abortions

Slate's women's blog had a very melancholy approach to news that the rate of abortions is going down:

Emily, I agree with your Clintonian sentiment re abortion (fewer = better), but perhaps only in theory. The new report on the falling abortion rate didn't provide a reason for the decline. Maybe I'm being cynical, but could this have something to do with the dwindling number of clinics?

I would say it has more of something to do with less women deciding to terminate the life of their unborn child, which, to any morally sane person, is a very good thing.
