The Dean Recommends: A Different Kind of Back Alley

January 21, 2012, was an overcast day in Birmingham, Alabama. The group that met the third Saturday of each month to pray outside the New Woman All Women abortion clinic was dispersing. As they climbed into their cars, a couple of the women noticed something unusual. They kept a low profile, but one of them grabbed her camera.

They watched as two women were taken away in ambulances. Paramedics hand-lifted one of the patients down the back stairs into the alley where a gurney waited beside the dumpster. The other woman was brought out in a wheelchair, her face covered by an oxygen mask.

Based on the women's testimony and the photographs they took, local pro-life leaders asked the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) to investigate the clinic. For a couple of months, it seemed like nothing was going to happen. Then, on Good Friday, April 6, 2012, the ADPH published a shocking 76-page "report of deficiencies" found at the New Woman All Women Clinic. Read the rest.
