Regulation laws causing record abortion clinic closings

Planned Parenthood building 2Clinic regulation laws are one reason why abortion facilities are closing at a record pace across the United States, as many existing abortion clinics cannot meet the new minimum health and safety standards.

Statistics divulged by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute indicate that 162 abortion providers have shut their doors or stopped surgical abortions since 2011, while only 21 have opened since then, Breitbart reports.

National Right to Life Committee President Carol Tobias explained to OneNewsNow that there are many reasons for the recent closures of abortion clinics across America.

“One, the younger women who would be more likely to get the abortions are choosing life,” Tobias told OneNewsNow. “Even if they become pregnant, they are allowing the pregnancy to go term — rather than getting that abortion.”

Doctors who have offered abortions for decades are now retiring and closing up their abortion clinics because there are not many doctors willing to perform abortions — to the extent that they cannot even sell their practice.

Tobias also says that other clinics that are similar to Planned Parenthood argue that they are just like other medical facilities that do procedures —insisting that they should be left alone.

“But when you pass laws to say okay, then you have to operate like other medical procedures — and you have to have facilities that are clean and meet basic standard levels of care,” the pro-life leader points out. “Then they come back and say, ‘Wait a minute, you're picking on us — you're treating us differently.’ They're trying to have it both ways.”

It is reported that one of the major reasons for the recent closures of abortion clinics is that they simply cannot meet the minimum standards by which other types of clinics already abide.
