Eighty-eight abortion businesses have closed or halted abortions following the Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs to overturn the faulty Roe v. Wade decision that created a federal "right" to abortion.
That's according to a new survey of the industry done by the pro-life organization Operation Rescue.
Its report said, "According to a new survey of each abortion facility in America conducted by Operation Rescue in October and November 2022, there are currently 683 abortion facilities/businesses operating in 36 states and the District of Columbia. Eighty-eight abortion facilities closed or halted abortions."
That, Operation Rescue said, was the "lowest number of abortion facilities in the U.S. in nearly five decades. In 1991, there were 2,176 abortion facilities in the U.S. Since that time, the number of abortion facilities have decreased a remarkable 68 percent."

There now are 14 states that are abortion-free, and another seven states are fighting in court to join that list.
"The falling number of abortion facilities translates into lives saved," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "We celebrate those saved babies, closed clinics, and new Abortion-Free states – something we haven’t seen since 1973, when Roe was tragically imposed on our nation.
"However, we remain troubled by the rise in the use of abortion drugs and the irresponsible increase in the distribution of those dangerous pills through the mail. There is still much work to do to protect every innocent life from the barbaric practice of abortion, but we can and should take great encouragement in the hard-won victories that have brought us this far."
The report provides information on abortion costs, wait times, telemedicine abortions and more.
States considered abortion-free include Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin, and West Virginia. While abortions are still legal in North Dakota, there are currently no abortionists operating in that state, the report said.
The survey found that 88 abortion facilities closed or halted all abortions, while 53 new facilities opened, accounting for a net decrease of 36 abortion facilities nationwide.
There now are 94 locations that dispense chemicals to end the life of an unborn baby.
"Of those, 14 are 'virtual abortion facilities' that prescribe abortion drugs online only, without an in-person visit with a licensed physician," the report said.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America's currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?
Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”
Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
