Abortion clinics throughout the country have set a record – this time a positive one.

Operation Rescue has concluded a detailed survey of abortion clinics in the country which reveals the good news.

"Eighty-seven surgical abortion clinics closed in 2013," reports Operation Rescue spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger.

Sullenger, Cheryl"That is by far the most we have ever seen," Sullenger adds. "And it's really a lot more than last year, which was 24 abortion clinics that closed."

In the United States, there are 582 surgical abortion clinics left, down from a high of 2,176 in 1991, she adds.

Why so many closings? There are several reasons why.

"For one thing there is a decreased demand for abortion," Sullenger explains. "America's becoming more and more pro-life so therefore fewer people are actually opting for abortions."

"Because they're really bottom of the barrel kind of businesses," Sullenger alleges.

There has also been stepped up enforcement of existing laws and an increase in reporting of abuses at abortion clinics by pro-life activists. Operation Rescue expects that to increase in 2014 because pro-lifers are becoming more adept at spotting and reporting the abuses.
