A combination of shady practices, injured patients, and building code violations resulted in the culmination of a 76 page deficiency report filed by the Alabama Department of Public Health against (Birmingham, Ala.) New Woman All Women abortion clinic in March 2012. ( Reports Life Legal Defense Foundation)
The report ultimately led to the revocation of clinic owner, Diane Derzis’, license to operate the facility and in May 2012 the abortion clinic was closed down. Ms. Derzis teamed up with long time friend Kelley Rainwater to strike a deal that would allow Rainwater to serve as a straw person running the clinic for Derzis. But….on February 8, 2013, the ADPH confirmed that Ms. Rainwater’s application was denied.
Derzies is fighting to stay open at her abortion clinic in Mississippi which is being defended by pro-abortion groups despite the conditions of her clinic in Alabama.
