An application for a proposed abortion clinic in South Bend has been denied by the Indiana State Department of Health.
The board determined that Whole Woman’s Health Alliance “failed to disclose, concealed, or omitted information” about other clinics the group operates.
This came as a surprose to the Texas-based group, whose CEO Amy Hagstrom Miller replied that the board’s denial lacked merit and claimed it seems “confused about the facts.” Whole Woman’s Health Alliance plans to appeal.
Indiana Right to Life celebrated the application denial, with its CEO Mike Fichter saying it’s “great news for women, unborn children and the South Bend community.”
The abortion clinic would have gone in at a building on the 3500 block of Lincolnway West. South Bend has been without an abortion clinic since Dr. Ulrich Klopfer’s license was revoked in 2015.
