Good news. A vigil that was to take place outside an abortion clinic in Philly may be the shortest one ever. I received this email from a pro-life reader yesterday.
Here's what it said:
A new abortion mill was supposed to open yesterday in northeast Philadelphia (see details at http://prolifeunion.org/petition/). I arrived for the planned prayer and protest in the morning only to find out that once Gov. Corbett found out about it, he got it closed down. They are officially out of business as of this Friday. Must be the shortest prayer vigil in history, and another reason for thanksgiving.Here's a snippet from the story from Philly.com:
The Pennsylvania Department of Health has ordered a new abortion clinic in Philadelphia to shut down because it did not disclose its affiliation with Steven Brigham, an abortion provider whose history of flouting health and abortion laws got him banned from operating in the state.This is why you really need a pro-life Governor. Republican or Democrat doesn't really matter. In Pennsylvania we had Tom Ridge and Ed Rendell. Both were both completely pro-abortion and turned their heads as Kermit Gosnell ran a butcher shop in Philadelphia.
The department suspended the registration of Integrity Family Health on Bustleton Avenue and gave it 30 days to file an appeal or the revocation will be permanent.
"No abortion-related services of any kind may be offered after Nov. 29," the deputy secretary of health, Anna Marie Sossong, wrote Monday to Kimberly Glunt, president of Integrity Family Health.
Neither Glunt nor Brigham could be reached for comment.
Michael McMonagle, president of the Pro-Life Coalition of Pennsylvania, and State Rep. Matt Baker (R., Bradford), chair of the Pennsylvania House health committee, had been pushing for action to close Integrity Health. "We thank Gov. Corbett for correcting his Department of Health's mistake of granting a license" to a clinic associated with Brigham, McMonagle said.
Governor Tom Corbett stepped in here and shut this atrocity down. Good for him. Sadly, the Democrat who looks like is going up against him is Allyson Schwartz, a congressman who used to own an abortion clinic. Something tells me that if she's elected we'll have a lot more Gosnells in Philadelphia.
