Overall, in 2018, 40 abortion facilities closed or no longer qualify as  abortion clinics.

Today, there are a total of 697 abortion centers left in America – seven fewer than there were at the end of 2017.

That total includes 467 facilities that conduct surgical abortions – down dramatically from the high-water mark of 2,176 surgical facilities documented in 1991.  This represents a massive 79 percent decrease in the number of surgical abortion facilities over the past 27 years.

The data was compiled by Operation Rescue, which conducted a survey of all abortion facilities in the U.S. from November 26 through December 14, 2018.

Each year, Operation Rescue conducts a nationwide survey that involves contacting each abortion business in the U.S.  The information gathered about the abortion clinics and their practices represents the most accurate data available.
