A question has been raised about whether a Birmingham abortion
has actually stopped doing abortions since the state ordered it to
Local pro-lifers have been monitoring the New Woman All Women's
clinic that reportedly had 76 pages of violations after a state
inspection (see earlier story). Dana Cody
of the Life Legal Defense Foundation
(LLDF) tells OneNewsNow why she is suspicious about whether the
abortuary has actually complied with state orders.
"They're still advertising
that they're offering abortion services both on their website
and their voicemail," she reports. "When you call in,
they're referring out; however, this is in violation of Alabama's
Deceptive Trade Practices Act."
As Cody points out, it is easy to change a voicemail or website
to delete references to abortion services when the state has
ordered cessation of those services. Since the clinic has failed to
do so, she thinks somebody needs to look into it.
"You just have to look at the history of the clinic and their
business practices, and somebody needs to continue to look into
it," the pro-lifer urges. "I mean, it's the state attorney
general's responsibility to make sure that businesses are complying
with the law."
The clinic's continued advertising of abortion services does
make Cody wonder if it is continuing to do abortions on the sly.
She has written a letter expressing LLDF's concerns about New Woman
All Women Abortion Clinic.
