Report: Over Two-Thirds of All Abortion Clinics Have Closed Since 1991

Says Operation Rescue

"We now have an accurate listing of every open abortion clinic in the country," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "In 1991, it was estimated that there were nearly 2,200 abortion clinics in the country, today there are just 713. The pro-life movement has made significant strides exposing and closing abortion clinics and shifting public opinion toward the pro-life position. This has resulted in lower abortion rates."

I wonder if abortion supporters would concur with those numbers.

I also wonder about the greater use of chemical abortions. You don't need to be a surgeon to do these-- even a nurse could conceivably execute them. Are more physicians and nurses doing these abortions on the sly?

I also suspect that a smaller number of abortion clinics are doing more abortions.

So much for the perceived need to have an abortion clinic in every county.
