According to surveys from Operation Rescue, 137 abortion clinics have closed in the last two years.

The annual survey found that 88 clinics had closed in 2022, and so far another 49 have closed or halted abortion operations this year. The 2023 number accounts for clinics that offer surgical abortions and those that offer pill-only options.

Operation Rescue notes that some clinics opened for the first time or resumed abortion operations as well. But from 2022 to the present day, there has been a net decrease of 13 abortion facilities.

Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue, said the current numbers are drastically lower than years prior and that the 670 abortion facilities operating in 2023 represent “a huge 69% decrease since 1991.”

Newman praises the amount of lives saved through the overturning of Roe v. Wade, and cautions pro-lifers to stay wary of mail-order abortions.
