Birmingham Abortionist's Bid to Stay in Practice Denied

Court Affirms Life Legal Defense Foundation Position on Illegal Clinic

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Oct. 3, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- Today, illegal abortionist Bruce Norman's bid to continue performing abortions at the unlicensed All Women's abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama, was denied. Life Legal Defense Foundation has been instrumental in helping to permanently shut down the abortion facility, formerly doing business as New Woman, All Women, which had continued operating for over a year after its closure by the Alabama Department of Public Health for multiple violations.

The decision, handed down by Circuit Judge Joseph L. Boohaker in the Circuit Court of Jefferson County, Alabama -- Birmingham Division, was one sentence long.

Life Legal Defense Foundation had filed a "friends of the court" brief opposing Norman's request for reconsideration in the matter of his ban on performing abortions.

"At the original trial, abortionist Norman admitted that all he provided by way of medical 'services' were abortions, by his own testimony he conceded that these abortions violated the law at a location shut down for numerous health code violations," explained Life Legal Defense Foundation Executive Director Dana Cody. "It is amazing that a motion for reconsideration was even filed. If I was in Bruce Norman's shoes I would be embarrassed, not emboldened to continue. Norman wanted to continue aborting children at a facility where the Alabama Department of Health has already prohibited abortion by consent order due to shoddy practices. The gig is up -- abortion is legal but it is NOT safe. This needs to stop and stop now. Kudos to Judge Boohaker."
