Whole Woman's Health Alliance, which is headquartered in Texas, went to court over its plans to open a South Bend abortuary.

"They've been trying to get in for about the last year," says Jackie Appleman, executive director of Saint Joseph County Right to Life.

Appleman says the Indiana Department of Health denied the license request and Whole Woman's appealed and won a ruling last week.

According to the Department of Health, Whole Woman's Health Alliance failed to meet the requirement that the "Applicant is of reputable and responsible character and the supporting documentation provided inaccurate statements and information."

Appleman says a group of abortion supporters have been searching for an abortion clinic to open after the previous one shut down approximately two years ago.  

"Whole Woman's Health has been known to enter states that have a lot of abortion regulations, and they try to fight those regulations," Appleman advises.

Indiana, meanwhile, follows numerous health and safety regulations for public safety, which makes it difficult for abortion clinics to operate, she says. 

The Department of Health has until October 5 to appeal the judge's recommendation.
