A new report from the pro-abortion Abortion Care Network found that almost one-third of all independent abortion facilities have closed since 2012.
The network is made up of independent abortionists that are not part of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion chain in America. Independent abortion businesses perform more than 50 percent of all abortions; Planned Parenthood abortion centers and hospitals and doctors’ offices do the rest.
Between 2014 and 2019, 136 independent abortion businesses closed across the country. States that saw the highest number of closures were California at 15, Texas at 15, Florida at 11 and Michigan at 11, according to the report.
Currently, there are 334 independent abortion facilities in the country, the report states.
Independent abortion facilities do the vast majority of late-term abortions. According to the report, they perform 94 percent of all abortions at or after 22 weeks of pregnancy. Babies now are viable at 22 weeks. ….
