In 1991, there were over 2,100 abortion mills in the United States. Today, there are 710. In other words, in that time, two-thirds of the killing centers have closed and have not re-opened.
The abortion industry knows that it is losing ground. A key reason for the closing of these mills has been that although the killing they do is permitted by the law, many other things they do are not – things like malpractice, fraud, sexual abuse, tax evasion, and a whole litany of other crimes. In fact, we at Priests for Life have never encountered an abortion mill that follows the law in every respect. Every abortion mill can be closed down just by applying the laws already on the books.
