Number of abortuaries goes down, down, down

I am the pro-life generationThe number of abortion clinics continues to drop yearly and a pro-life group has the latest figures for 2015.

Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue says 53 abortuaries closed their doors and another 28 have "dramatically" reduced their services.

"So 81 abortion clinics have closed or drastically reduced their services in 2015," she tells OneNewsNow.

Operation Rescue claims that 81 percent of all abortion clinics have closed since 1991, so the current numbers suggest what remains is 19 percent of the number from almost a quarter-century ago.

Some factors are retirement of aging abortionists, often due to health problems, new state clinic regulation laws, a decline in the demand for abortions and strong public support for life.
