76% of the Abortion Clinics That Were Operating in 1991 Have Closed

Just days before the nation marks the 44th memorial of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, the Guttmacher Institute released a survey of 2014 abortion numbers that show abortions have dropped to their lowest level since the 1973 ruling that decriminalized abortion in the U.S. According to the survey, abortion numbers have decreased by 14 percent since 2011.

The question no one seems to be able to definitively answer – and the authors of the survey did not address – is why?

Operation Rescue has been monitoring abortion facilities for years and conducts its own annual survey, which shows abortion businesses have been steadily declining since 1991. That year, there were 2,176 surgical abortion facilities in the U.S. Today, there are 517 – a decrease of 76 percent.

To directly correlate it to the abortion-supporting Guttmacher Institute survey, since 2011, there has been a 23 percent reduction in surgical abortion facilities.

While abortion is decreasing nationwide, the drop is particularly sharp in states where abortion facilities close, according to data found in state abortion statistic reports.

“When abortion clinics close, lives are saved,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “When there are no abortion businesses in a community actively marketing abortions to women, abortions decrease. Abortion businesses create a fake ‘need’ for women to get abortions through aggressive marketing campaigns. Take away the supply, and we find there is little actual demand.”. . . Read More
