Planned Parenthood closing makes Birmingham Alabama ‘abortion clinic free’

A Planned Parenthood clinic, which regularly performs abortions, has closed in the Birmingham, Alabama area. This closure will mark the end to the last of the clinics offering these services.

Fr. Terry Gensemer of CEC For Life tells LifeNews that sidewalk counselors report that the facility does not appear to have performed abortions since before Christmas.

One counselor told the website that “she has only seen a handful of patients show up in the past four weeks, none of which stayed long enough to have an abortion.”

“But that’s just the start. On December 30th, after the facility was closed for several days, pro-lifers on the sidewalk witnessed the facility’s director being escorted from the building, followed by a repairman changing all of the locks. Three days later, a sign from Planned Parenthood Southeast (PPS) appeared stating that the facility would be closed until January 6th, 2014. After the 6th, sidewalk counselors say the facility did reopen, but only briefly,” Gensemer explained.

The facility posted a signed that reads:  “We apologize for the inconvenience, but this facility is temporarily closed.”

The PPS website also removed the facility’s hours of operation schedule, as well as adding a note that reads: “Services at our Birmingham health center are temporarily slowed.”

Gensemer hopes the closure will be permanent.

“This Planned Parenthood should have been closed long before today. It already has a lawsuit pending from a woman left infertile after the abortionist ignored her ectopic pregnancy and performed an abortion on her empty womb. Before that, the facility was caught in a round of scandal for allegedly covering up cases of statutory rape. For the sake of everyone this facility continues to harm, we are praying it remains closed.”
If the facility does remain closed, Birmingham will be the largest metropolitan area in the country free of abortion clinics, Gensemer stated.
