Whole Woman's Health placard at protestA well-known abortion chain that was denied a license in the hometown of one of the world's largest Catholic universities may try once again.

In August 2017, Whole Woman's Health Alliance applied for a license to open an abortuary in South Bend, Indiana. After submitting a revised application in October, the Alliance was notified on January 3, 2018, that the application had been rejected.

According to Antonio Marchi of St. Joseph County Right to Life, the letter from the Indiana State Department of Health stated Whole Woman's Health didn't demonstrate "reputable and responsible character," having concealed or omitted information about its partner organizations or subsidiaries.

"The language of the denial letter gives Whole Woman's Health the opportunity to apply for a review by January 23," explains Marchi, "and it's my understanding that the organization certainly intends to do so."

The Texas-based abortion group previously faced heavy fines after Operation Rescue filed complaints against two abortion clinics caught discarding the remains of aborted babies in overflowing garbage dumpsters.

The abortion chain has a history of using the courts to achieve its goals. For example, the Supreme Court case Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt resulted in a decision that overturned part of a Texas law designed to help protect the health and safety of women and girls obtaining abortions.

South Bend is home to the University of Notre Dame. Whole Woman's Health currently operates abortion clinics in Texas, Illinois, Maryland, Virginia, and Minnesota.
