Abortion Clinics Closing at Record Rate

Here’s a happy headline to open the week. As a result of new state regulations, the murder mills known as “abortion clinics” are closing at a record rate.

This year, 42 clinics that provided surgical abortions have shut their doors, and two that offered chemical abortions by drugs also have closed, according to Operation Rescue, which monitors closings and health and safety violations by clinics nationwide. That number far surpasses the 25 surgical clinics shutdown last year and the 30 in 2011, by Operation Rescue’s count. While others estimate a smaller number of closings, the pattern is clear.

Some of the shutdowns have been of major clinics. For instance, Virginia’s No. 1 abortion provider closed, The Washington Post reported in July. NOVA Women’s Healthcare in Fairfax, Va., shut down after state and local governments enacted regulations the abortion provider appeared unable to meet. The northern Virginia clinic performed 3,066 abortions in 2012 and 3,567 in 2011.

The reasons given for the upswing in closings are varied even among pro-lifers. They include:

— the increasing state regulation and oversight of clinics;

— a growth in pro-life opinion and activity, and

— a decline in the abortion rate.

In some cases, clinics have shut down when abortion doctors retired or were no longer licensed.

State legislatures enacted 69 pro-life laws this year, according to a report released Thursday (Sept. 5) by Americans United for Life. In all, 48 states considered about 360 such proposals in 2013, AUL reported.

    Raaaaacism! War on Women! Abortions need to be free for everyone, including girls as young as 12, up until the child is 5 years old! It shouldn’t even be required that a doctor perform the abortion. And there don’t need to be any standards for how clean the facility is…

    This is good news. I’d think most anyone would be happy to hear the abortion rate went down, but I am sure that the Usual Suspects will be mouthing off how this is a “War on Women”. Because the right to kill her baby before it is born is the most important Right, even though those Agents of the Patriarchy we call the “Founding Fathers” didn’t include it in the Bill of Rights. It is, in truth, despicable to be pro-abortion, and that is what most of the usual suspects are. They are silent on the forced abortions in China (where’s the demand fo Choice there?) or sex-slective abortions in the Third World and even in America. There are millions o fmissing girls in China alone where parents under the One-Child Law (again, where is the Choice in that?) abort girls at an abnormally high rate. The Demographics in China will take decades to come back into balance now that China has ended that anti-Human policy. Pro-abortionists simply don’t care about things like that.

    many speculate that new Virginia regulations that require clinics that provide abortions to meet new hospital-grade standards was forcing the clinic to seek a new location.

    It seems that they didn’t have enough parking to meet news medical care facility standards for their size. The cost to upgrade was too much for them and they moved staff elsewhere.

    Mostly college women using these services. One thing I think that should be done is separate out abortion services from all other medical care. These college women use the cover of other medical services as an excuse to get an abortion from a facility labeled as “women’s health”.
