WHERE: Outside of courtroom located at 716 Richard Arrington, Jr. Blvd. N, Birmingham, Alabama
WHY: LLDF has requested that the Alabama Department of Public Health aggressively pursue its law suit to enforce its own rules by issuing an emergency administrative order to close the illegal clinic.
In advance of the hearing, Dana Cody, Executive Director, Life Legal Defense Foundation, released the following statement:
"The defendants have shown contempt for the Alabama Department of Public Health by advertising and continuing to provide abortions in direct violation of the terms of a signed agreement. This is the same type of conduct that abortionist Kermit Gosnell engaged in at his abortion clinic in Pennsylvania. Gosnell's utter disregard for the law resulted in the tragic killing of women and children at his clinic, aptly dubbed a 'house of horrors.' No one wants Alabama to be responsible for enabling the next Gosnell."
