145 Abortion Facilities Shut Down over the Last Five YearsLive Action News (September 29, 2017)
A pro-abortion organization is concerned that abortuaries are closing across the nation.
The Abortion Care Network (ACN), a coalition of independent abortion businesses, issued a report on the declining number of abortion centers. In the past five years, 145 independent “clinics” closed.
The ACN supports abortion businesses that are not affiliated with Planned Parenthood or a hospital chain. Of those, numbers went from 510 facilities in 2012 to 365 today, not counting the hundreds of Planned Parenthood centers.
On a homepage titled “Communities Need Clinics,” ACN wrote that abortion businesses are closing at an “alarming rate,” particularly independent ones, that often offer late-term abortions.
