Still more abortion mills are expected to close in the coming days and weeks as historic anti-abortion state laws come into effect.

WICHITA, Kansas (Operation Rescue) – According to Operation Rescue’s first-hand investigation, over 49 abortion clinics have either halted abortions or have been forced to close their doors altogether since last Friday when the U.S. Supreme Court released its decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case.

The decision effectively overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and its companion case, Casey v. Planned Parenthood (1992), placing the issue of abortion in the hands of the states.

More abortion mills will close in the coming days and weeks as state laws go into effect. Although efforts are being made in some states to block pro-life laws, the U.S. Supreme Court has already begun to bring correction to the methods used for years by the abortion industry to nullify state laws that protect life in the womb.

On Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court threw out three cases wherein lower courts had ruled to block enforcement of state pro-life laws passed in Arkansas, Arizona, and Indiana. The lower courts were instructed to reconsider those decisions in light of Roe’s overturn.

On top of the 49 plus abortion mills that have shut down, nine states are now completely abortion free. Since Roe and Casey decriminalized abortion in all 50 states, we are seeing an unprecedented number of states becoming abortion free.

“This has been our plan all along, and we will continue to work until all states are free from the stranglehold of the abortion cartel,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.

Operation Rescue staff have been frantically counting all the closures. Through phone calls and other direct communication, Operation Rescue has verified the closure of abortion clinics in these states:

  • Alabama: 4 closures (now an abortion-free state)
  • Arkansas: 2 closures (now an abortion-free state)
  • Arizona: 4 closures
  • Georgia: 1 closure
  • Kentucky: 2 closures (now an abortion-free state)
  • Michigan: 1 closure
  • Missouri: 1 closure (now an abortion-free state)
  • Ohio: 10 closures
  • South Carolina: 3 closures
  • Tennessee: 3 closures
  • Texas: 14 closures
  • Wisconsin: 4 closures (now an abortion-free state)
  • Wyoming: 1 closure (now an abortion-free state)

Three additional states, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and West Virginia, were already abortion free prior to Roe’s overturn

“Without a doubt, the abortion cartel is losing ground,” said Newman.
