Pro-life Movement gaining ground: Over two-thirds of all abortion businesses have closed since 1991.
[Ed. in 2015, about three-fourths of all abortion businesses have closed.]
An extensive research project into the abortion industry showing that the number of abortion businesses continues to dwindle as Americans become more pro-life has been released.
“We now have an accurate listing of every open abortion clinic [sic] in the country,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
“In 1991, it was estimated that there were nearly 2,200 abortion clinics [sic] in the country, today there are just 713. The pro-life movement has made significant strides exposing and closing abortion clinics [sic] and shifting public opinion toward the pro-life position. This has resulted in lower abortion rates.”
Operation Rescue has listed all abortion businesses along with a map showing their locations.
The information shows a general relationship between access to abortion centers and the abortion rate in each state. With few exceptions, the states with greater access to abortion have higher abortion rates — access increases abortion numbers.
The release of the list launches “Project Daniel 5:25”, Operation Rescue’s latest campaign to expose abortion industry abuses and bring the perpetrators to justice.
Project Daniel 5:25 is named after the Biblical story of Daniel, who was able to read the handwriting on the wall and predict the fall of a wicked kingdom.
“The days of legal abortion in this nation are numbered. Pro-life sentiment continues to gain ground as abortion support slips. Abortion clinics [sic] continue to close as demand decreases and as abortionists are increasingly exposed and reported to the authorities,” said Newman.
“Project Daniel 5:25 encourages those with pro-life views to establish a presence at their local abortion clinic [sic] to pray and offer help to abortion-bound women – but also to monitor the clinic [sic] for criminal violations and other suspicious acts. We have never found an abortion clinic [sic] that follows the law. It is up to pro-life activists to serve as the watchdogs of the abortion industry and be the eyes and ears of law enforcement.
“We can do more than simply protest abortion clinics [sic]. We can document their illegal and dangerous behavior and work within the law to close them down.
“With a pro-life watchdog group at every clinic [sic] reporting what they see to the authorities, we will certainly see more abortionists criminally charged and abortion clinics [sic] closed. We know first-hand from having our offices in a closed former abortion clinic [sic], that when clinics [sic] close, lives are saved.”
Those who wish to participate in Project Daniel 5:25 are encouraged to call Operation Rescue at 1-800-705-1175.
