The “other” abortion clinics that perform 2/3rds of all abortions
Tired of being in Planned Parenthood’s long shadow and obviously not entirely happy that they don’t have the slick marketing or the big budget of the abortion giant, several of the nation’s self-identified “independent abortion clinics” (they call themselves “indies”) have joined together as the “Abortion Care Network” to issue a report on their work titled “Communities Need Clinics: The Role of Independent Abortion Care Providers in Ensuring Meaningful Access to Abortion Care in the United States.” That report can be found here.
According to the report, “independent abortion care providers” comprise 25% of the abortion facilities in the country but perform 60% of the abortions in the U.S. (Besides the 35% performed by Planned Parenthood, the report says 4% are performed in hospitals and 1% in physician’s offices.) Another way of saying it, they want us to know that “3 in 5 people who have an abortion get care from independent abortion care providers.”
