Amarillo, TX – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today commented on the bankruptcy filing of the Birmingham abortion clinic, Summit Medical Center.  The abortion facility had been closed since July after wrongfully giving a woman with a late term pregnancy and high blood pressure the abortion drug RU-486, resulting in the delivery of a six-pound, four-ounce stillborn baby.


“We hope that the financial bankruptcy of this abortion clinic reminds the community of the moral bankruptcy of every abortion clinic,” stated Fr. Pavone.  “A business that makes its money destroying innocent human life should not be a part of any community.”
