Sunday as she waited to be reunited with her missing 2- year- old daughter. “ Hey, baby,” Rogers said minutes later as she held a crying Sophia Rogers. Sophia and 12- year- old Autumn Shreve disappeared from their home at 1472 Mulberry Lane in Avon between 3: 30 and 4 p. m. Saturday, Avon police said. The disappearance triggered a search by Avon and area police and the FBI. The search included putting photos of the girls on television and the Internet. At 9: 17 p. m. Sunday, a woman who had seen pictures of the girls called Elyria police, said police spokesman Capt. Chris Costantino. The woman said she saw girls fitting the description from police walking by the intersection of Columbus Street and Gulf Road. Autumn and Sophia were found unhurt by Detectives James Homoki and Robert Hudzinski. “ It could’ve been horrible,” Costantino said. “ We’re just very thankful that they’re both OK and that someone had the foresight to see something and call.” Rogers, 20, said Autumn is the sister of her fiance, Charlie Gibson. Rogers David Crary The Associated Press Abortions have declined in states where new laws make it harder to have them — but they’ve also waned in states where abortion rights are protected, an Associated Press survey finds. Nearly everywhere, in red states and blue, abortions are down since 2010. Explanations vary. Abortion- rights advocates attribute it to expanded access to effective contraceptives and a drop in unintended pregnancies. Some foes of abortion say there has been a shift in societal attitudes, with more women choosing to carry their pregnancies to term. Several of the states that have been most aggressive in passing anti- abortion laws — including Ohio, Indiana, Missouri and Oklahoma — have seen their abortion numbers drop by more than 15 percent since 2010. But more liberal states such as New York, Washington and Oregon also had declines of that magnitude, even as they maintained unrestricted access to abortion. Nationwide, the AP survey showed a decrease in abortions of about 12 percent since 2010. One major factor has been a decline in the teen pregnancy rate, which in 2010 reached its lowest level in decades. There’s been no official update since then, but the teen birth rate has continued to drop, which experts say signals a similar trend for teen pregnancies. The AP obtained the most recent abortion numbers from the health departments of all 45 states that compile such data on a comprehensive basis. ( States not compiling such data are California, Maryland, New Jersey, New Hampshire and Wyoming.) With one exception, the data was from either 2013 or 2014— providing a unique nationwide gauge of abortion trends during a wave of anti- abortion laws that gathered strength starting in 2011. Among the groups most active in promoting the restrictive laws is Americans United for Life. Its president, Charmaine Yoest, suggested that the broad decrease in abortions reflected a change in attitudes among pregnant women. “ There’s an entire generation of women who saw a sonogram as their first baby picture,” she said. “ There’s an increased awareness of the humanity of the baby before it is born.” But advocates for abortion rights said the figures demonstrate that restrictive laws are not needed to reduce the number of abortions significantly. That can be achieved, they said, by helping more women obtain affordable, effective contraception, including long- lasting options such as IUDs and hormonal implants. “ Better access to birth control and sex education are the biggest factors in reducing unintended pregnancies,” said Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “ More restrictive abortion laws do not reduce the need for abortions.” Elizabeth Nash, a state- issues expert for the Guttmacher Institute, a research group that supports abortion rights, said a total of 267 abortion restrictions have been enacted in 31 states since 2011. Among them are measures that ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, impose hospital- like physical standards on abortion clinics, and require doctors who perform abortions at clinics to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. While some of the new laws have been blocked by NBA FINALS: GAME 2 95 93 AP Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James celebrates Sunday after the end of the overtime period of NBA Finals Game 2 against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland, Calif. Abortions declining in nearly all states See ABORTIONS, A2 Sophia Autumn See FOUND, A2 Cavs defy odds, hang on for OT win The Cleveland Cavaliers didn’t have Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love… or a prayer. Not against the best team in the NBA, the Golden State Warriors, and especially not on the Warriors’ home court. At least that’s what the national narrative seemed to be prior to Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night. Obviously the Cavs weren’t listening. LeBron James delivered another majestic playoff performance, getting a tripledouble with 39 points, 16 rebounds and 11 assists in 50 minutes as the Cavs picked up a grueling and gritty 95- 93 win in overtime to square the seven- game series at a game apiece. Matthew Dellavedova, pressed into playing 42 minutes while filling in for the injured Irving, had nine points and five rebounds, and hit the two clutch free throws that provided the final margin. Timofey Mozgov added 17 points and 11 rebounds, Tristan Thompson 14 rebounds ( seven offensive) and J. R. Smith 13 points. The Cavs again played stellar defense, holding the high- scoring Warriors to 39.8 percent shooting from the floor, while frustrating league MVP Stephen Curry into a 5- for- 23 shooting night. Curry, who has already set the NBA record for 3- pointers in a postseason, was just 2- for- 15 from long range. It was the second straight OT game in the series, which heads to Cleveland for Game 3 on Tuesday. — from staff reports READ MORE IN SPORTS, PAGE B1
