2023 IN REVIEW: OPERATION RESCUE’S EXCLUSIVE NATIONWIDE INVESTIGATION OF THE ABORTION INDUSTRY
WASHINGTON. DC – As the pro-life movement victoriously marks the 50th National March for Life, abortion clinic closures are celebrated around the nation. Millions of courageous and caring individuals and groups have gathered and marched in solidarity for the rights of preborn children in Washington, D.C., for decades.
This year’s national March for Life is being held three days prior to the anniversary of that horrendously unjust decision and less than two years after the anniversary of the day it was finally overturned – June 24, 2022. For pro-lifers, the celebration of that day continues, but the fight to protect innocent, preborn children also rages on.
Operation Rescue’s 2022 Annual Survey, released just five months after Roe’s overturn, revealed that 88 abortion clinics had closed. And the 2023 survey identified another 49 closures, totaling 137 abortion clinic closures in the last two years.
Since the late November release of the 2023 survey, Operation Rescue has learned of a small number of other abortion clinic closures and openings. Those updates will be included in the 2024 annual survey.
The annual survey identifies trends, including types of abortions performed, increasing lack of safeguards, methods and cost of abortions, and wait times. This first-hand data often dispels the talking points of the pro-abortion mainstream media.
“Today we march in victory!” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
“We know that Roe is dead, and more and more abortion mills have closed. Fewer babies are dying today than in 1973, but our work is far from over. We will not relent until every abortion mill is piled up on the ash heap of history.
“Not only do we strive to keep the public informed of the corrupt abortion industry’s dark, horrid underbelly, but we work closely with boots-on-the-ground pro-lifers across the country to save lives of innocent babies by nailing shut the doors of these wretched killing centers for good!”
