After 28 years in business, an abortion clinic in Santa Rosa, California has shut its doors. The reason given by the abortion clinic workers is that there were simply not enough clients.
Pro-life activists had been holding 40 Days for Life prayer vigils regularly outside of the clinic. Upon learning of the clinic’s closing, they rejoiced saying, “If an abortion business in Santa Rosa can close after 28 years, surely that can also happen in your community!”
The abortion clinic that closed, Women’s Health Specialists abortion clinic, was part of a chain. The pro-life group plans to continue their peaceful prayer vigils outside other locations of the clinic in Sacramento, Redding, and Chino.
In their newsletter, Californians for Life explained how this abortion clinic was more than a baby butcher factory. It’s previous medical director was so reckless in his abortion procedures that women were hurt badly, and some even died.
The Women’s Health Specialists abortion chain’s former Medical Director Dr. Bruce Steir was a notoriously dangerous abortionist who hurt many women, including a woman who bled to death after he punctured her uterus during an abortion. Dr. Steir, who was on medical probation at the time, performed thousands of abortions at Women’s Health Specialist and was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter.
The Women’s Health Specialist abortion chain, which reportedly does 6,000 abortions a year, has been struggling financially for several years, taking out several loans and were involved in lawsuits over forcing workers to disrobe for group “self-exams”. This closure is huge news for California, where pro-abortion Democrats pushed through legislation to allow non-physicians to perform abortions, deregulated the abortion industry, increased the Medi-Cal reimbursement rate for abortion by 40% and forced life-affirming Pregnancy Clinics to refer clients to places like this for abortion. The closure of Women’s Health Specialist abortion business in Santa Rosa follows a national, record-setting trend documented in Bloomberg Business Reports.
