Missouri Becomes First Abortion-Free State
A pro-life group is reporting that Missouri has become the first “abortion-free state” in the U.S. after its last abortion facility stopped pregnancy terminating services.

Last week, the Operation Rescue released a report outlining “The Status of American Abortion Facilities in 2020.” According to the report, “a total of 45 abortion facilities closed or halted abortions nationwide in 2020, leaving one state without an active abortion facility.”

The report also stated, “Reproductive Health Services Planned Parenthood in St. Louis was the last abortion facility in Missouri. It remains open, but Operation Rescue has confirmed that no abortion appointments have been available there for months, and none are available anytime in the foreseeable future. All abortion appointments are now being referred to the Fairview Heights Planned Parenthood facility across the Mississippi River in Illinois.”
