Did Republicans Take Over California and No One Told Me?

Bloomberg reports that abortion clinics are closing. 
Abortion access in the U.S. has been vanishing at the fastest annual pace on record, propelled by Republican state lawmakers’ push to legislate the industry out of existence. Since 2011, at least 162 abortion providers have shut or stopped offering the procedure, while just 21 opened....

California’s loss of a dozen providers shows how availability declined, even in states led by Democrats, who tend to be friendly to abortion rights....
State regulations that make it too expensive or logistically impossible for facilities to remain in business drove more than a quarter of the closings. Industry consolidation, changing demographics, and declining demand were also behind the drop, along with doctor retirements and crackdowns on unfit providers.
Could young women (and girls, because many are just that) have decided that adoption is better?  Or have they learned to insist on condoms as a precondition for sex?  Many years ago, I remember getting into a heated argument with a pro-choicer who insisted that it was unrealistic to expect men to use condoms as a condition for sex.

  1. There is a possibility that potential abortionists are acquiring consciences.
