Ohio Closed 7 Abortion Facilities in 4 Years; Abortion Numbers Drop

Last year it was reported that the number of abortions in Ohio have hit historic lows, likely the outcome of pro-life laws that resulted in shutting down unsafe abortion facilities. A new report now indicates that since 2011, seven of the 16 abortion facilities operating in Ohio have been closed.
“Ohio’s continual decline in abortions is representative of an increasingly pro-life culture in our state,” said Stephanie Ranade Krider, executive director of Ohio Right to Life. “We grieve for every life lost to abortion and we are concerned that abortions among African Americans, while lower than last year, are still disproportionately high. We are hopeful that with each passing year, we will find ways to save more and more lives.” Currently, nine abortion facilities remain open in the state.
