A new survey claims that there is a pro-life trend in the United States; 73 abortion clinics were closed for all or part of the year in 2014, which means 75 percent of abortion facilities have been shut down since 1991. 


According to the survey, 739 abortion facilities remain in the U.S.; the facility closings outweighed the openings, as 15 clinics opened this year. 


The research was conducted by Operation Rescue. 


Life News reports Operation Rescue President Troy Newman said, “We are continuing to witness the implosion of the abortion cartel in America. The only things that are preventing total collapse are court injunctions that are blocking several state abortion safety laws from being enforced. Once those laws clear the courts, we expect to see even more dangerous abortion facilities close. This is great news for women and babies because when abortion clinics close, lives are saved.”
