For 27 years, Gloria Gray has owned and operated the West Alabama Women's Center in Tuscaloosa, which sees an extremely high volume of business. Sarah Neely of the Charismatic Episcopal Church for Life wonders if the abortuary is taking applications for another abortionist, because the current one, Louis Payne, is up in years.

"It will be interesting if they'll be able to attract any other physician at that facility," says Neely. "As far as we know, Dr. Payne has been the only doctor at that facility in the last year or so -- at least that's what we're told by sidewalk counselors that are there."

The former owner, Gloria Gray, has spent the better part of three decades destroying preborn children, but she has reportedly sold the clinic so that she can spend more time with her grandchildren.

"My prayer, as always when someone gets out of the industry, is that maybe that will just clear out their mind enough to hear the voice of God, to be able to look at what they've done with their lives and to maybe reflect upon that and be able to see, when they look at their grandchildren to recognize how many grandchildren they've destroyed just with their career and just with the path that they chose with their life," the pro-lifer shares.

Gray also said she felt pressure from Alabama state lawmakers and their continuing push to save the lives of preborn babies and that she did not feel welcome because of sentiments expressed by local residents.
