Abortion facilities are struggling to stay open across the U.S. because pro-life state laws are stopping them from making money aborting unborn babies.
ABC News highlighted the abortion industry’s financial struggles post-Roe v. Wade in states where abortions are or soon will be banned. The report exposes how lucrative killing unborn babies in abortions really is and how abortions are not just a small percent of what these supposed women’s health care facilities do.
Currently, 15 states protect unborn babies by banning or limiting abortions, five have pro-life laws that will go into effect soon, and four more are fighting legal battles to enforce their pro-life laws in court, according to Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America.
In West Virginia, the Women’s Health Center of West Virginia in Charleston is aborting unborn babies again after a judge temporarily blocked the state from enforcing its pro-life law. But once the state abortion ban goes into effect, as many believe it will, the abortion facility likely will close.
Executive director Katie Quinonez told ABC News that her facility has a $1.6 million annual budget, and abortions are 40 percent of its revenue.
“Being unable to provide abortion care absolutely puts us in a precarious financial position,” Quinonez told the news outlet. “Our ability to keep our doors open very much depends on revenue from the services we provide, as well as grants and donations.”
In other states where unborn babies already are being protected from abortion, many abortion facilities have closed and others are moving to pro-abortion states.
Amy Hagstrom Miller, founder and CEO of the Whole Woman’s Health abortion chain, told ABC that their four Texas facilities will be closed soon, and they are raising money to open a new abortion facility in New Mexico.
Here’s more from the report:
The cost of closing clinics and reopening elsewhere is immense, Hagstrom Miller said. Due to the planned closures, Whole Woman’s Health has laid off roughly half its staff in Texas. Meanwhile, the company has sought to get out from under leases on two of its Texas facilities at the same time it has pursued a lease on a facility in New Mexico. On top of that, the company has looked for temporary storage for medical equipment and planned the relocation of remaining staff.
“All of that requires capital resources that we don’t have now because we’re not able to see patients, which of course is the major source of income in any medical practice, not just abortion clinics,” Hagstrom Miller said. “You don’t have income if you don’t have patients.”
“It is a big financial burden,” she added.
A new report from the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion research group, found that 43 abortion facilities have closed or stopped aborting unborn babies since the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health ruling in June.
While Planned Parenthood told ABC News that it has not closed any abortion facilities since the Supreme Court ruling and ABC repeated the debunked claim that abortions are only 3 percent of what it does, the nation’s largest abortion chain has been struggling financially, too.
In the spring, Planned Parenthood closed five facilities in Indiana, Idaho and Alaska, and five more in Vermont and New Hampshire, citing financial struggles.
These struggles are good news for unborn babies and mothers. Pro-life laws and fewer abortion facilities means more unborn babies will be saved from abortions.
The fewer abortions centers the better it gets now lets go after Planed Parenthood
“Three percent of all Planned Parenthood health services are abortion services.”
–Planned Parenthood, fact sheet on Web site 2015.
43% std testing.
11% other women’s health services.
9% cancer screenings.
Seems they’d be plenty of those std tests needed.
Loads and loads of need.
So, they lied.
I’m confused; abortion is restricted, mostly to 6 weeks. So, why would the flow of abortions cease? Are people THAT lazy and irresponsible that when they commit the act from which pregnancy originates (they DO know what causes it, don’t they?) they just don’t bother to get around to getting that beloved abortion?
The biggest concern, will Planned Parenthood still be able to donate millions and millions of taxpayer dollars back to the Democrats that funded them?
The GOP did this: Woman forced to carry fetus with no chance of living due to Louisiana abortion law
Remember in November.
Shove it up your ass
A typically thoughtful response…
But the fact is that The GOP did this, and Trump made it possible.
Meh. Worth it.
America will die unless we start having babies again.
Undoing the damage done by feminists and their faithful cucks like greg isn’t so hard afterall.
The baby will have a birth defect, and live.
The Democrats want to kill you and your kids.
Remember in November.
Biden let more people die of Covid than Trump, in a shorter period of time, WITH a vaccine.
Remember in November.
Hyperinflation caused by Biden is destroying families.
Remember in November.
Biden’s FBI is targeting political opposition.
Remember in November.
Biden’s cult threatened to kill the SC when they ruled properly on Roe.
Remember in November.
Biden has no voting bloc outside of racist white karens who have degrees in lesbian dance theory.
Remember in November.
The good news is everyone is ready to catch these buffoons if they try to rig elections like they did in 2020, installed a not-the-president biden who is drooling on the People’s resolute desk.
Remember in November.
Trump’s de facto third party is restoring freedom and making America strong, so we can support and protect the world, ousting the Democrats the GOPe all the same.
Remember in November.
You DO remember that these laws are nothing but a direct response to Democrats supporting abortion for any reason up to the time of birth… and beyond. Right? Remember all the discussions about common sense restrictions that all you on the far left reject out of hand because your desire to KILL overrides every other consideration? Well, inevitably, some people will suffer.
Blame yourselves. YOUR barbarity and stupidity brought this upon yourselves. We told you so.
greggie, we all know you do not like the way our country was founded and works. So, our founding documents gives you the right to go live and whine somewhere else. If your political party had an ounce of integrity, they would find a legal way for women to murder their unborn children. The Supreme Court did the correct thing. President Trump appointed knowledgeable lawyers to the supreme court to correct what judges and lawyers have known since the start of abortion approval by the court. The court of unelected judges did not and does not have the power to make law. Doing things your way, requires abolishing the Senate and House of Representatives and turning the administrative branch of our government into a robotic yes man. Your ignorance and stupidity of continuing to spew ignorant comments like you usually do makes you a village idiot as well as a threat to the US.
Such “worth it” real world consequences will run the right’s lunatic, unAmerican, hot-button agenda straight into a ditch. That’s what the GOP gets for letting a Trump drive.
You live in a dream world. Support for abortion exists only among a fringe group of human sacrifice worshipers who try to pass their vile obsession off as “health care”. When asked the proper questions, such as “do you support abortion for any reason up to the time of birth”, support for abortion plummets. Most may support a reasonable access to the choice of abortion, but few share your satanic devotion to murdering a baby in the third trimester, even up to and beyond the moment of birth, on a whim.
The only “real world” consequences you Democrats fear is full, healthy families who can’t be exploited with handouts and fear.
The Majority of Americans don’t like abortion, and the Majority of Americans support Trump, and would vote for him in 2024.
The GOP is as dead as the Democrat Party. Trump represents an American alternate to our bought-off, anti-American state.
There can be no freedom and no moral responsibility in the absence of individual choice. You will NEVER understand that, nor will you ever understand that pro-choice IS NOT the same as pro-abortion.
The immorality of the State forcing a woman to carry a doomed fetus until a child is born without a skull is a result of your own thinking.
Democrats are baby murderers
Murder is not an available choice.
“There can be no freedom and no moral responsibility in the absence of individual choice.”
That’s why it’s so important that the USA provides this individual choice, in spades, as opposed to most other countries in the world.
We who support the SC and our rule of Law are fighting for choice against tyrants like you.
The Law provides protection from people like you would violate others safety, and lives.
Abortion ends a life, and thus is counter to everything we stand for.
Again, abortion on demand in America was never passed as a law, never followed Constitutional Authority. It was an activist trick-f*cking the Supreme Court.
States are now free to pass their own laws. If the Federal Government wants to pass a law, they may. I suggest they do it soon, because most Americans no longer see the federal government as having any real authority.
It’s un-democratic, and unAmerican to protest the “letting go” of Roe. It’s democratic and American and Constitutional to support each state making it’s own laws, as that’s how our governmental structure works.
Happy to see more people being born and given a chance.
I’m sure you won’t whine and complain about paying additional taxes to support all of the destitute single mothers, impoverished children, and hopeless congenital malformations that result, despite the fact that you whine and complain about every nickel spent on social welfare programs already. The increases will, of course, be disproportionately borne by red states—which tend to be more dependent on federal subsidies already.
That’s pretty much the liberal’s solution for every problem, isn’t it? Government pay-out. How about encouraging personal responsibility and consequences?
How about taking responsibility for your own choices?
The right’s choices often involve taking choice away from others, and then washing their hands of any inconvenient but predictable consequences such unforgivable intrusions into the lives of others have created.
Then they blather on about the Constitution, personal freedom, and responsibility, blissfully unconscious of their own hypocrisy. Basically, they want the State to be empowered to force others to behave as they think proper, which is antithetical to every principle of liberty the Founders had in mind. They don’t even get past the first sentence of the First Amendment without tripping, imposing their own personal religious views about the point when a person begins.
I thought you said you support personal responsibility?
Encouraging bad habits so you can use poor people as a voting block is wrong.
Offering charity for those in need, by choice, continues to be the way Americans help the most.
Even amongst the few legal votes Biden got, most of them shouldn’t count because it’s poor people being promised money and support, essentially voter fraud because you’re promising something in return for your vote.
Democrats have NO such majority. They are the bribing the poor in addition to copying fraud ballots.
You’re LITERALLY taking away the rights of the unborn by playing relativistic games.
We’re defending their rights.
It’s no contest. We stand for freedom and choice.
You stand for eugenics.
We have laws. A person can’t do “anything” they want. Our laws protect other people, and society at large.
Your Atheist-monkey-shit fest ends in complete collapse of civilization.
No thank you. In fact, we’re not going to let you do it.
A fetus, having no capacity for consciousness, is a pregnancy, not a person—except in the right’s imagination and propaganda screeds. It’s property of the mother; literally part of her own body. What becomes of that potential is entirely up to her. It’s between she and her conscience, in accordance with HER religious beliefs, not yours. The First Amendment guarantees that to be so.
There might be some point of compromise when issues of fetal consciousness become uncertain, but your bat-shit crazy dogmatism is clearly unconstitutional, because the the position you hold is based on a particular religious interpretation that not all Americans share. At least you claim it to be.
Authoritarians often appeal to religion and patriotism both as tools of control. Trump has used both bibles and the flag as photo-op stage props. His only god is the dollar.
As I said, you’re playing relativist, idiot-games because logic does not support you.
A conception becomes a human over time, therefore it is a human. By your logic, we should be able to “abort” a 5 year old.
You just can’t win this one.
An unborn child is NOT part of a woman’s body, either. The fetus has it’s own genetic code, and is a separate person from the mother.
This only works for you if you abandon science and make up your own meanings and definition, like a homeless man yelling in the street.
That’s precisely what you, and people like you, do.
The religion we fight now is your Woke Atheism that defines things as it sees fit, foisting your faith on the rest of us in both schools and society.
Anyone with a brain knows that aborting a fetus is killing it. Anyone with a brain knows a man isn’t a woman.
Your religion is poison. Keep it to yourself.
Studies being done show the world will be much better when the population starts having more babies. The trends now, in the US, now that abortion is being outlawed, show we’ll get up to that 10 Billion number in a generation or two, given the USA will influence nations to have more kids.
Once again, murder is not a choice that is available to make. To date, NONE are denied a choice, they merely have to do so before the limits of humanity are crossed.
The Constitution is “blather”? Well, I guess that explains it. There is no hypocrisy. None. Please point out where in the Constitution abortion is described as a right. You’ve had lots of time since I last asked you to provide this, so you should have done your homework and have it handy.
Why don’t you point out where anyone forces behavior on anyone? I think we all unequivocally support personal freedom, but none of us support the taxpayer being who has to pay for whatever mistakes the individual makes, nor do we believe the common rules of basic humanity are to be waived to compensate for irresponsible behavior.
I think a revulsion to murder is a non-secular and universal belief.
Your party has soundly rejected any compromise. The fact you went so far over the line with late term abortion for any reason right up to the moment of birth told everyone you will NOT compromise. You yourself will not discuss when the moment of life begins and beyond which abortion should be agreed to be forbidden. Now that your disgusting support for human sacrifice has prompted a strong reaction, you for the FIRST time mention there MIGHT be some room for compromise. What is so repulsive is that when letting a living, breathing, crying baby expire on a cold, stainless steel table out of convenience was presented as an option, how WRONG that was never entered your mind. Your only concern was to do what you want to do when you want to do it and let others clean up the mess.
Oh, my, another bleeding heart story from Comrade Greggie, who is abortion’s biggest supporter (although he cannot answer the question “what is a woman”).
But as with all things Comrade Greggie, you need to read between the fine lines, or in this case, in the lines of Comrade Greggie’s reference. And who shows up? None other but Ben Crump, the lawyer of Trayvon Martin/George Floyd fame. A grifter extraordinaire, who never met a black person that he did not want to make a buck off of in a bogus “civil rights” case. Crump has Jesse Jackson syndrome.
I ask you again, Comrade Scumbucket, what form or abortion do you prefer? Do you support burning the child to death with a saline solution? How about dismemberment since sucking the brain out of this particular child is not an option?
Step up and support your death cult.
Greggie goosestepper refuses to admit the huge lie he was suckered into, the 3% bullscat. He thinks the baby a woman carries is part of her body like an eyeball? Some body needs to explain a female has a special carrying case inside her body that babies live and grow in until they are born. ( its called a womb) That little human has separate and distinct DNA. He is a science denier.
Thankfully the low-intelligence, low-education types like greg are being pushed out by saner minds.
His ideas of abortion and biology, provided by his religious cult, will die with him.
The world is about to be ravaged by the bad reproductive choices made by nations around the world.
China will collapse in about 10 years or less. The “one child” policy was a bad, ignorant idea.
The plain fact is that growing numbers of republican-controlled states now force women to continue unwanted pregnancies against their will, even when the pregnancy was forced upon them by rape or incest.
So tell me all about about “goosesteppers”.
The GOP is going to pay for this stupidity in November.
No state bans abortion, only puts responsible time limits on when that is an option for convenience. You seem to have no idea what personal responsibility even is.
YOU brought this upon yourselves.
“The plain fact is that growing numbers of republican-controlled states now force women to continue unwanted pregnancies against their will, even when the pregnancy was forced upon them by rape or incest.”
That’s a lie. Rape and incest pregnancies happen so rarely as to be dismissed. You’re using them illogically, as you do with most things. It’s what you’ve been programmed to do and say.
Most states have provisions for rape and incest, which I wholly agree with.
The “choice” is whether to have sex or not. FULL STOP. Period.
The pregnancy is a person at conception. FULL STOP. Period.
Redefining the moment of “personhood” is pernicious and a genocidal, eugenics mind-set. I reject it, and anyone who pushes it.
Uh, Democrats have the House, the Senate, and occupy the WH.
They’ve punished college grads for being responsible for paying their loans, they increased crime by defunding police, they’ve stoked non-existent racism, they’ve acted like Putin, raiding a candidate they can’t beat legally, they’ve killed people with covid treatments while killing people by depriving them of treatments that work like HCQ and Ivermectin, they’ve threatened our SC, they eroded our laws, they’ve made us poor, hyperinflation, war, famine, death…
THE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO PAY FOR THIS IN NOVEMBER.
Don’t you dare try to invert this calamity you idiots have caused, you fucking prick.
Democrats will pay in November. They’ve failed, and the voters know it.
Rape or incest should be a reported crime, the 10 year old that her mother was pregnant by the same illegal alien quick hide the event? So maybe mom is trafficking her little girl? You dont really care. This admin led by Pedo Pete as his son calls him are going down.
The zero regulated filthy death houses are closing down, cause they provide only 2 services, illegally selling baby parts and murder.
Murder isnt a thing that only people who believe in God want stopped, no matter how you twist it in your damaged brain.
Religion or faith has nothing to do with it.
Wishful thinking on goosestepper greg. Abortion is not a November midterm issue.
Inflation, immigration and energy shortages are far and away more important to Americans than abortion. greg wants to manufacture an issue that does not exist politically.
Greg also doesn’t understand that the attention to abortion also includes people OPPOSING abortion, not just death cult human sacrifice zealots.
Democrats only declare election fraud for the elections they lose…
Isn’t prenatal care medical care? She must drinkum too much firewater.
Let’s take a look at the absolutely insane comments made by Comrade Greggie, our resident Communist who is part of the death cult, shall we?
Using that kind of wordsmithing defies all common logic. That is like saying that a drunk is a hangover, not a person. You would think whoever is Comrade Greggie’s handler would at least try to attach some connection between the words he is trying to wordsmith (wordsmithing being the attempt to give an irregular meaning to the words used).
Comrade Greggie is now trying to equate an unborn child with an organ or another body part. He totally ignores that an organ supports the body where it is located while a woman’s uterus (an organ) (which Comrade Greggie cannot define) IS the support organ for an unborn child. Each and every part of the woman’s body contains the same DNA as she does. Not so with the unborn child which possesses it’s own DNA, unlike any other human being. What happened to “follow the science”?
So now a woman gets to decide the potential of the unborn child? How so? Is she going to make it a trans-flower? A daisy? Perhaps a rose? Or maybe a puppy? A tree? Or does the science show that there is only one potential for a forming human being; becoming a full formed human being?
If Comrade Greggie is so big on “choice” perhaps he can explain why he doesn’t really support “choice.” Where does Planned Parenthood offer choice? Do they recommend pregnancy resource centers to women in lieu of an abortion? Do they provide a pregnant woman with that information? Do they tell their customers “Here, here is a list of organizations that will help you and it will cost you nothing.” No, they don’t and they also hand a woman a bill when the abortion procedure is agreed upon. BTW, PP doesn’t offer credit. Why is Liz Warren wanting to shut down pregnancy resource centers when a majority of Americans, both left and right, think they should be funded by the government? Liz Warren, hardly the most honest person ever to be in the Senate, says PRCs are dishonest because they don’t provide medical care. What about PP? Not one PP location in the State of Texas had mammogram equipment yet it touted “breast exams.”
Clearly Comrade Greggie cannot read the English language.
When poll respondents this week were asked to rank the nation’s biggest problems, the economy topped concerns, with a third of Republicans and a quarter of Democrats pointing to it as the top issue.
For Republicans, the next most pressing problems were immigration and crime, each of which topped concerns for about one in 10 Republicans.
Among Democrats, about one in eight saw the environment as the top issue, and about one in 10 pointed to the end of national abortion rights.
