Operation Rescue and other pro-life groups want West Alabama Women's Center shuttered because of its pattern of injuring women, and a disgusting track record of unsanitary conditions that failed to meet health and safety standards.
Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue says the clinic has an “atrocious” record in which women have died and been injured during abortions.
A news website for Alabama-related news, AL.com, reported in 2020 that pro-life protesters witnessed a women leave the clinic and struggle to get into her car. That woman later died at the hospital, and a state investigation ended with no criminal charges.
A spokesman for the sheriff’s department called the incident a “death under medical supervision.”
Sullenger tells AFN the abortuary failed two back-to-back health department inspections but was allowed to remain open.
Instead of asking the same state officials for help again, the pro-life groups are asking’s Alabama attorney general, Steve Marshall, to listen to their pleas to hold the clinic accountable.
