A monument to the exploitation of women and the destruction of precious babies now mercifully reduced to a pile of rubble

Published on

A picture is worth a thousand tears. This phrase came to mind as I observed the demolished remains of Hillcrest, the long-time Harrisburg, Pennsylvania abortion center. It is likely that many thousands of tears have been shed by families grieving the loss of loved ones who were sacrificed in the crumbling edifice. I recall the fierce winds which would howl along Hillcrest’s perimeter as women would enter the building’s doors. My friends and I would offer solace and assistance to the women and male companions who would pause briefly on the sidewalk or in the alley behind the facility.

Prayers were offered to the divine as automobiles arrived at the parking lot adjacent to the outpost of social distress. Each vehicle represented at least one innocent human life that would be lost forever in Hillcrest’s hall of infamy.

A few years ago, an inspection report by the Pennsylvania Department of Health revealed a multitude of health and safety violations, amounting to more than 40 pages. The sheer volume of violations could have constituted a substantial body of literature, encompassing a range of themes, including horror, greed, neglect, and violence. These themes were situated within a relatively confined geographical area, namely the vicinity of the state Capitol.

I recall downloading the report on my computer and experiencing a sense of distress. I contacted a local television news reporter, known for her work detailing health inspections at restaurants. Fortunately, the intrepid journalist quickly grasped the extent of the scandal and filed a damning news report.

A group of Pennsylvania state senators wrote a letter to the PA Health Department, demanding that Hillcrest be closed. Eventually, the operators of the disgraced facility surrendered their abortion license voluntarily.

The building has stood empty for years. It is a symbol of the exploitation of women and the destruction of babies. Now, it is being torn down.

The end of Hillcrest shows the importance of regulating abortion facilities, the strength of the pro-life movement, and the triumph of justice.
