The pro-life group Pro-Life Nation announced today that its web site has surpassed 3,000 document-uploads that reveal a systemic pattern abuse throughout the abortion industry.

“The more than 3,000 documents now online are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to exposing the health care crisis that exists in the abortion cartel today,” said Troy Newman, President of Pro-Life Nation. “We have really just begun to document abortion abuses that are occurring every day at abortion clinics that the public mistakenly thinks are providing safe abortions.” is an outreach of Pro-Life Nation. It is a searchable database that lists every facility that does surgical abortions or sells the dangerous abortion drug RU 486 and it lists every abortion practitioner in the country. Each clinic and abortion doctor has a profile page with links to documents that include license applications, law suits, disciplinary action, criminal background, 911 recordings, autopsy reports, and more.

In 1991, there were over 2,176 surgical abortion clinics in America. Today there are 660, showing the effectiveness of pro-life efforts over the years.

“ is the nation’s abortion scorecard. There we can see at a glance the number of abortion clinics dropping as clinics continue to close,” said Newman.

Newman said most recently Summit Women’s Center in Hartford, Connecticut, permanently closed while the Women’s Aid abortion clinic relocated from Lincolnwood, IL to Chicago and stopped doing surgical abortions.



A Brooklyn, New York-based abortion center will stop doing abortions after 22 years and will reopen as a legitimate medical center offering help to patients rather than death to unborn children.
