A pro-life group is still waiting to see if Florida will prosecute an abortion clinic over alleged violation of federal law.
Presidential Women's Center in West Palm Beach has a record of sending women to hospital emergency rooms after an abortion. Operation Rescue's Cheryl Sullenger tells OneNewsNow about the most recent incident, which occurred on October 11 and was witnessed by local pro-life activists.
"An ambulance was called to that clinic to transport a woman to the hospital," Sullenger begins. "We did further research and found out that this woman actually was hemorrhaging, so [presumably] she had had some sort of an injury during an abortion procedure."
In November 2016, Presidential Women's Center was referred for criminal investigation and possible prosecution by the U.S. House Select Panel on Infant Lives.
"During that investigation," Sullenger reports, "they found that there was enough evidence to refer them to the attorney general's office in the state of Florida for prosecution, because selling aborted baby remains for profit is illegal in this country. It's a federal law."
The congressional panel contends the clinic made at least $20,000 for the sale of aborted babies' body parts to Stem Express, which then sold them allegedly for a profit.
Last year information surfaced that the clinic was being reviewed for possibly prosecution, but there's no word thus far from AG Pam Bondi's office on the investigation or whether charges will be pursued.
