Reports: U.S. Abortion Facilities Closing at Record Rate

By Heather Clark | christiannews.net

Planned-Parenthood-pic-Midland-300x191New reports on the status of the abortion industry indicate that abortion facilities in the United States have been closing at a record rate since 2011.

Bloomberg notes that since 2011, 58 abortion facilities–nearly 1 in 10–have either shut down or stopped offering surgical abortions. Some pro-life groups contend, however, that the figures are much higher as over 40 abortion facilities have shut down this year alone.

Reports outline that increasing regulations on abortion facilities have heavily impacted the closures. The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute says that approximately 200 abortion restrictions have been passed since 2011. Nearly one-third of the closings since 2011 have attributed to new laws that make it difficult for abortionists to stay in business.

As previously reported, Planned Parenthood closed its Bryan, Huntsville, and Lufkin offices just last month in response to new Texas regulations calling for increased facility standards.

“In recent years, Texas politicians have created an increasingly hostile environment for providers of reproductive health care in underserved communities,” Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast President Melany Linton wrote in a statement. “While we believe the excessive and medically unnecessary requirements imposed on clinics providing early abortion are unconstitutional, we have made the difficult and practical decision to close Planned Parenthood Center for Choice in Bryan [and others] at this time rather than face the prospect of having to do so in the foreseeable future.”

However, not all closings are due to pro-life legislation, as a number of facilities have been forced to shut their doors due to serious violations uncovered by local health departments or the revocation of the abortionist’s license following the discovery of illegal activity.

    You know, more women and girls are aware of what abortion actually is, the killing of your unborn child. Even though the schools and Planned Parenthood advertises abortion as the removal of a infinitesimally small globb of material from your body, girls are waking up and taking a position about something taking place in their lives. Who is it going to affect in the end. That girl or woman and her child.
    Wake up America. Your choices today do affect your tomorrows.

    This year alone is a record year for the number of abortion clinics that have closed and are closing. I pray that all of them will be shut down.
