Around one third of all pregnancies ends in abortion in Detroit, according to The Detroit News.

The city’s abortion rate has been steadily climbing, hitting 31 percent in 2012, the paper reports.

“We’re seeing a picture that looks more like some third-world country than someplace in the United States,” Susan Schooley, chairwoman of the Department of Family Medicine at a leading Detroit hospital, said.

A Detroit News study called the city, “the most dangerous city in America to be a child.”

Meanwhile, in Louisiana, Gov. Bobby Jindal is expected to sign a bill into law this week that would force at least three of the state’s five abortion clinics to close.
