I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)A pro-life group in Pennsylvania is claiming victory for the results of pro-life legislation.

Maria Gallagher of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation tells OneNewsNow her organization was pleased by what they learned from a routine check of the Department of Health's website.

"We discovered two abortion facilities in Pennsylvania were listed as closed," she reports. "Those were both in Philadelphia, and this is a monumental victory for pregnant women and their babies to see these abortion facilities shut their doors."

Gallagher does not know the full reason why the facilities were closed, but she does know that both surrendered their licenses after state inspections. And regardless of the reason behind the closures, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation hopes this development will result in fewer abortions.

"We know that it's been going steadily in a downward direction across the state because of the passage of our landmark Pennsylvania Abortion Control Act, which has saved many, many lives," the pro-lifer comments. "We're hopeful that these closures will bring the abortion rate down even further."

The law requires minors to obtain at least one parent's consent before they can have an abortion. It also requires that a women be given information on abortion before she consents to the life-ending procedure, and it instructs health department officials to develop regulations that abortion clinics must abide by to protect the health and safety of abortion patients.
