Abortion clinics closing at rapid rate in 2014, it’s ‘urgent’ for supporters

Seventy-five percent of the abortion clinics in America have now closed down.

There are just 739 remaining, a loss of three-quarters since the country had its highest number of clinics in 1991. Seventy-three shut down in 2014 alone.

The pro-life group Operation Rescue, which keeps track of clinic closures, applauded the development.

“We are continuing to witness the implosion of the abortion cartel in America.” President Troy Newman aid.

Newman expects to see even more closures in 2015 if several state abortion safety lawas survive court challenges.

One of the hot zones has been Texas, where legislation requiring licensed doctors and emergency care led to several closures (13 within a week) and prompted abortion supporters to call the situation “urgent.”

Stephanie Toti, senior counsel for the Center for Reproductive Rights, said her group plans to appeal the court’s decision as soon as possible. “The situation on the ground in Texas right now is urgent, and we expect to take very swift action,” she said at the time.

Other factors appear to be the new scientific studies that illustrated a fetus feels pain much earlier than previously thought and the ultrasound technology reveals details that deter women from executing the process.

Expect this topic to be a “hot one” headed into 2015 and beyond.
