    According to a survey by the pro-life watchdog group Operation Rescue, 367 surgical abortion facilities have closed permanently since 2013. With this year’s closures, there has been an astounding 79 percent drop in the total number of surgical abortion facilities in the United States since 2013. But it isn’t all good news. Operation Rescue conducted a survey of all abortion facilities in the United States from November 18 to December 6, 2019. They defined abortion facilities as independent businesses that commit abortions outside of a hospital, and looked at two categories of abortion: surgical and chemical (abortion pill). Overall, the...

    PART TWO OF A TWO-PART OPERATION RESCUE SPECIAL REPORT A new survey of abortion facilities in the U.S. has revealed a new, disturbing industry-wide trend that shows that overall in 2019, surgical abortion facilities have expanded into the late-term abortion market, where lucrative multi-day procedures can reap quick profits. The survey also found the following: * There are 710 abortion facilities in the U.S., comprised of 464 surgical and 245 medical abortion clinics. * The percentage of surgical abortion facilities that self-impose abortion limits at 13 weeks or earlier dropped from 46% in 2018 to 31% in 2019, meaning more...

    Last month, the pro-life group Americans United for Life (AUL) released the results of a survey on abortion clinic regulations commissioned through YouGov.

    House of Horrors” Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell hired untrained workers to administer anesthesia and do other medical procedures, which led to the deaths of two women. But testimony from former abortion workers reveals that the wasn’t alone — other abortion facilities have also used untrained staff. In a webinar hosted by the pro-life group And Then There Were None, several former workers spoke about this. Former Kermit Gosnell worker Adrienne Moton explained in the webinar how Gosnell hired inexperienced people: "Most of us that worked in the back, including myself, had no – we were not licensed at all… His...

    VATICAN CITY — The Vatican is drafting guidelines to help Catholic dioceses find appropriate ways to decommission unneeded churches so they don't end up as discos, gymnasiums or gelato shops. The Vatican's culture ministry is teaming up with Rome's Jesuit-run Pontifical Gregorian University and the Italian bishops' conference to host an international conference in November on managing the sale of churches and handling of their assets. The event already has a title: "Doesn't God Dwell Here Anymore?"Culture Minister Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi told reporters on Tuesday that many dioceses in Europe, North America and Australia have more churches than they need...

    Out of 1,800 abortion clinics in the U.S., including 730 stand-alone mills, how many would you expect to include the word “abortion” in their name? Try one: the Abortion Surgery Center in Norman, Okla. On one hand, it’s entirely understandable that abortion businesses avoid the word “abortion” like the plague it is. On the other hand, the fact that virtually no clinics identify themselves by what they actually do reveals an awful lot about a truly awful industry. It also cuts the legs out from under one of the abortion lobby’s favorite charades: to fake outrage about the names pregnancy...

    Planned Parenthood said on Thursday it would shutter four of its 12 clinics in Iowa as a result of a measure backed by Republican Governor Terry Branstad that blocks public money for family planning services to abortion providers. Health centers in Burlington, Keokuk and Sioux City will close on June 30 and one in Quad Cities soon after as a result of losing $2 million in funds under the new measure, said Susan Allen, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of the Heartland. The four clinics served 14,676 patients in the last three years, she said, including many rural and poor...

    Judge Scalia's death put Roe v. Wade back in the conversation. After all, abortion and that 1973 opinion are always foremost in the minds of U.S. Senators confirming judicial nominees. One side is looking for a justice to save it and the other side wants one to overturn it.   Nevertheless, abortion clinics are closing across the country and it has nothing to do with Roe v. Wade. It's about states restricting the clinics, as we see in this report: At no time since before 1973, when the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion, has a woman’s ability to terminate a pregnancy been more dependent on...

    PORTLAND, Ore. — At least six Christians were attacked with a cleansing agent on Wednesday while preaching the gospel and standing for life outside of a Planned Parenthood facility in Portland, Oregon, but the man who committed with the act was not arrested and was let go without charges. The pro-life outreach was part of the Biblical Church Evangelism Conference hosted by Beaverton Grace Bible Church and organized by its pastor, Chuck O’Neal. As over 20 Christians stood on the public sidewalk to proclaim the word of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ through preaching and the holding of...

    Ohio recently made headlines with reports that half the abortion clinics in that state have closed and several others have curtailed services, reducing abortion numbers to the lowest since 1976. “When abortion clinics close, abortions decline and lives are saved. It’s as simple as that,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and co-author of the book Abortion Free. “We have worked in Ohio on a number of projects in cooperation with local leaders that, in part, contributed to this decline.” While some refuse to acknowledge that abortion clinic closures contribute to lower abortion numbers, Newman explains that the evidence...

    When Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed a sweeping anti-abortion law in 2013, he did so knowing the measure faced an uncertain future. Indeed, the law is already winding its way through the legal system, and if its opponents have their way, Texas's reproductive legal code will land in the hands of the Supreme Court. But such a decision is likely a year or years a way, and back in the Lone Star State, the final judicial score won't much matter. The law has already had tremendous success in closing abortion clinics and restricting abortion access in Texas. And those successes...

    The ever-decreasing number of abortion clinics continues its decline with the announcement of the closing of abortion clinics in Texas, Florida, and California.  Whole Women’s Health announced this week that its surgical abortion clinics in McAllen and Beaumont have permanently closed due to the new law passed last year that requires abortion facilities to meet minimum safety requirements, including hiring only abortionists that maintain local hospital privileges. The McAllen location had “temporarily” closed in January.Operation Rescue had lodged complaints about the Whole Women’s Health clinics in McAllen, Beaumont, and Austin after discovering they were improperly dumping “identifiable” aborted baby remains...

    Editor's Note: This column was co-authored by Tami Fitzgerald, Executive Director of the North Carolina Values Coalition. A Durham abortion facility became the third to close down either temporarily or permanently last week due to health violations. In the wake of the horror stories that came out of the Kermit Gosnell trial in Philadelphia, states across the nation are taking action to protect women from the filthy conditions and dangerous practices occurring inside America’s abortion clinics. Like other states, North Carolina has been anxious to ensure it is not the sight of the next Gosnell – sloppy abortions on filthy...

    The Philadelphia murder trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortion provider accused of cutting the spinal cords of infants delivered alive during abortion procedures, has exposed not only the grisly details of his practice, but also the negligence of several Pennsylvania governmental agencies. The case is causing some to question whether abortion clinics are appropriately monitored across the country, including in Maryland, where the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) introduced new regulations for the state’s surgical abortion facilities last year. Maryland has one of the highest abortion rates in the country, according to data from the New York-based...

    As General Assembly sessions go, the Commonwealth of Virginia’s recently completed legislative session went with little drama and much compromise. Both Republicans and Democrats worked alongside each other, making numerous compromises and not falling into anarchy like Wisconsin. Yet the hot-button moral issues did get some airtime. In late February, not long before senators and delegates left Richmond for home, a bill was passed that will affect Virginia’s abortion clinics. As reported by the Washington Post, the General Assembly decided that “clinics where most of the state's early-term abortions are performed should be regulated as hospitals instead of as...
