A Michigan abortion clinic is out of business after a fire marshal shut it down based on an inspection. Operation Rescue contends conditions were so horrible that some women obtaining abortions may have been injured.

Women's Medical Services in Muskegon was owned by Robert Alexander, who is now doing abortions part time in a Detroit area abortuary. Troy Newman of Operation Rescue tells OneNewsNow about the shuttered clinic.


"His abortion mill was filthy," he describes. "The roof tiles were falling in, and with the uncleanliness of the abortion room, you wouldn't have your wife get her nails done in this clinic, let alone have an invasive surgical procedure."

Believing former clients have been injured, Operation Rescue is calling on them to contact his organization as staff gathers enough information to take legal action.

"Well, we're going to start with the revocation of his medical license and move to criminal sanctions against him and, hopefully, some big civil sanctions from the state as well," he explains.

Newman adds that conditions in the Muskegon clinic should remind people that just because something is legal, it does not mean it is right.                                       

"The back alley abortion clinics of yesterday have never really left," he says. "This is a prime example of how bad the abortion industry is."

Several women have already come forward with stories about their experiences in the clinic.

Making an option a requirement

As Washington state lawmakers consider a bill that would force coverage of abortion, a pro-lifer asserts that proponents of such language will have a fight on their hands.
