Abortion Dr. Gorli Harish, who lives in California, threw in the towel. He commuted about once a month to perform abortions. Demand was too low to warrant the trips.
That leaves on abortion clinic in the state, in the state capital of Charleston.
From Cassy Fiano:
Unsurprisingly, a local pro-abortion organization mourned the closure of the facility. “A woman in need of reproductive health care in West Virginia already faces serious obstacles, whether she is seeking obstetrical or abortion care,” Margaret Chapman Pomponio, executive director of WV Free, said. “Closure of Kanawha Surgicenter just exponentially increased the challenges. Now that we are down to only one provider, it’s more important than ever that we stand together to protect this critical access.”
She then stated that politicians must protect the remaining abortion facility, and subtly decried the pro-life laws that have recently been passed. “No matter how one may personally feel about abortion, we should all be able to agree that women and girls deserve to be safe,” she said. “Women’s Health Center in Charleston is a safety net. WV FREE and the women’s health community calls on our elected leaders to protect what little access West Virginia women have left.”
In 2015, West Virginia lawmakers put a 20-week abortion ban into place, which the abortion lobby immediately slammed.Fiano stated the state averaged eight late-term abortions each year.
Harish abandoned his clinic.
It was reported that medical supplies were left in a dumpster outside the facility, along with furniture. Harish’s wife said that medical records had already been shredded, but a man was found pulling syringes from the trash, indicating that staffers may not have been concerned with properly disposing of the equipment.It's a business.
No one wanted to take it over, and so the business was literally put in the Dumpster.
West Virginia may be a trend setter.
The abortion rate in the United States fell to its lowest level since the historic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalized abortion nationwide, a new report finds.
The report by the Guttmacher Institute, a research group that supports legalized abortion, puts the rate at 14.6 abortions per 1,000 women of childbearing age (ages 15-44) in 2014. That's the lowest recorded rate since the Roe decision in 1973. The abortion rate has been declining for decades — down from a peak of 29.3 in 1980 and 1981.
The report also finds that in 2013, the total number of abortions nationwide fell below 1 million for the first time since the mid-1970s. In 2014 — the most recent year with data available — the number fell a bit more, to 926,200. The overall number had peaked at more than 1.6 million abortions in 1990, according to Guttmacher.At long last, our national nightmare may be ending -- because the demand fell in killing babies.

It covers the nomination process only. The general election will be covered in a sequel, "Trump the Establishment."
