Planned Parenthood Abortion Company Closed 27 Clinics In 2016

The nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, closed 27 facilities in 2016, One News Now reports.

American Life League, which tracks data related to abortion and Planned Parenthood, found that the nation’s largest abortion provider opened eight new facilities and closed 27 others in 2016. The abortion chain currently operates 624 facilities, according to ALL.

. . . Abortion is a big money-maker for Planned Parenthood. Many of the facilities that it closed in the past few years did not perform abortions. Instead, they referred women to other facilities for abortions. One News Now noted that many of the 2016 closings involved facilities that were not making a profit.

A survey of abortion facilities in 2016 by Operation Rescue found that the average first-trimester surgical abortion costs $625.35. Planned Parenthood performs approximately 320,000 abortions a year, and its most recent annual report showed it bringing in almost $1.3 billion in revenue.

. . . Pro-lifers hope to see more Planned Parenthoods and other abortion facilities close in the near future as Republicans take control of the House, Senate and White House. President-elect Donald Trump promised that he would sign a bill to defund Planned Parenthood as long as it continues to do abortions.

In January 2016, the House and Senate passed a measure to defund Planned Parenthood, but pro-abortion President Barack Obama vetoed it. Read More
