Abortion clinic blocked ... then it wasn't ... now it is

Say no to abortionA Texas-based abortion chain with a questionable reputation isn't happy with a decision to ban it from the city that's home to the University of Notre Dame.

Whole Woman's Health Alliance applied for a license last year to terminate preborn babies in South Bend, Indiana, which has no other abortion facilities – but the state refused. The abortion company appealed to an administrative judge who overturned that decision. But Mike Fichter of Indiana Right to Life tells OneNewsNow that a three-member panel overruled that on Wednesday, meaning South Bend will remain abortion-free.

"And from what we have understood, the state feels that Whole Woman's Health did not provide all of the information requested when applying for a license in South Bend," he shares. "... On those grounds the state rejected that license – and that is the grounds on which this is being argued on going forth."

Part of the information not provided involves Whole Woman's Health being fined for its role in dumping remains of aborted babies in garbage dumps.

Fichter says the abortion firm has threatened to take legal action over the Indiana rejection.

"At this point we don't know exactly what that's going to look like," Fichter admits, "but they're deeply funded and it's very likely they're going to file an appeal on this – and we're confident the state will fight this appeal."

Whole Woman's Health is the same abortion chain that fought a comprehensive Texas abortion clinic regulation law all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and won a decision gutting part of that legislation. The abortion chain was well-funded by pro-abortion groups in that process.
