Editor’s note. The following good news comes from Missouri RTL.
The prayers of many have been answered with the closing of the Women’s Care Gynecology abortion clinic in Bridgeton, Missouri. “This is great news for Missouri,” said Pam Fichter, President of Missouri Right to Life. “There is one less location killing unborn children.” The clinic, owned and operated by long-time abortionist Allen Palmer, closed its doors last Monday. Palmer is retiring, and a spokesperson for the clinic confirmed that no replacement doctor would continue his abortion business.
Only two Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in Missouri perform abortions at this time, one in Kansas City and the other in St. Louis. The Kansas City clinic does only chemical abortions. A Planned Parenthood clinic in Columbia has done abortions in the past but has no abortionist at this time.
“More and more people, in Missouri and elsewhere, are recognizing that unborn children have a right to life,” said Fichter. “Many people, who previously were conflicted about the abortion issue now recognize that too many abortions are being performed. A recent poll of New Yorkers found that 64%, including a majority of those who identified themselves as “pro-choice,” believe that too many abortions are taking place in New York City. Those feelings are even more prevalent in other parts of the country,” Fichter continued. (See Part Three.)
