55,875 babies saved through Planned Parenthood closures

Brown: “When Planned Parenthood leaves town, preborn babies’ lives are saved.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. (10 March 2021) - Since 1992, pro-life individuals and organizations in the United States have worked diligently to close down local Planned Parenthood centers. The intent is to remove Planned Parenthood’s influence from the community and to prevent Planned Parenthood from doing local abortions.

This week, ALL released a special report entitled American Life League’s 2020 Planned Parenthood Facilities Report, which documents how pro-lifers across the country have been extremely successful in their efforts. Planned Parenthood has gone from 938 medical centers nationally in 1995 down to 563 such centers at the end of 2020. The report estimates that 55,875 preborn children were saved from surgical or pill abortions in 2020 alone because there were no Planned Parenthood facilities in their areas.

American Life League president Judie Brown noted: “Planned Parenthood runs the largest abortion chain in the nation. It operates 53.5 percent of all the abortion facilities and commits abortion at 69 percent of its centers. When Planned Parenthood leaves town, preborn babies’ lives are saved. American Life League is proud to be a leader in the effort to close down every Planned Parenthood facility in the country.”

The 2020 Facilities Report documented that Planned Parenthood closed 33 centers in 2020 and opened just nine new facilities. This is the 18th year in a row that Planned Parenthood ended the year with fewer active centers than at the beginning of the year. It also documented that Planned Parenthood has no centers in North Dakota or Wyoming and that 61 percent of its centers are located in just 10 states. California has the most Planned Parenthood centers, with 107 of them located in this one state.

Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League, stated: “We are very active in the fight to close down Planned Parenthood centers. We have a dedicated website—STOPP.org—that contains a great deal of information for pro-life activists, including the PLAN on how to close down Planned Parenthood facilities. I am on the phone with activists all the time, and I’m currently doing virtual meetings in lieu of the traveling to various states that has been our mainstay for decades. God is raising up dedicated activists in communities across the country to close down Planned Parenthood.”

Hugh Brown, executive vice president of ALL, added: “Since American Life League’s beginning in 1979, we have always seen Planned Parenthood as the preborn babies’ number one enemy. We not only fight abortions at Planned Parenthood, but we also are a major fighter against its sexuality indoctrination programs and its constant assault on our teens and pre-teens. Closing every Planned Parenthood facility in the nation would be applauded by all who are trying to restore a culture of life in America.”
