Washington, DC - Today, Bloomberg Business published an article titled, "Abortion Clinics are Closing at a Record Pace." The article begins by noting that "Abortion access in the U.S. has been vanishing at the fastest annual pace on record."
Operation Rescue's own research verifies this claim with numbers that vary slightly from those published in today's Bloomberg article. That trend is continuing strongly into 2016.
"Our annual surveys of abortion clinics produce the most accurate data out there in regard to abortion clinic closures and current numbers," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "This is verifiable evidence that we are solidly on the path to an abortion-free America."
Already in 2016, there have been nine abortion facilities that have closed or announced imminent closures. Even given that two of the closures are expected to be temporary, abortion clinic closures continue on an average pace of one closure per week.
In a report released on December 22, 2015, Operation Rescue documented that 54 abortion facilities closed or halted all abortion services during that calendar year.
Since 1991, surgical abortion clinic numbers have fallen by 81%.
