Give Alabama Women their Rights - Reopen the Birmingham Abortion Clinic

The State of Alabama Department of Public Health recently gave into the bullying by the anti-choicers. They denied a very qualified applicant’s application to obtain a license to operate the New Women All Women clinic in Birmingham Alabama. This applicant was denied based on the lease application between she and Diane Derzis. She has recently submitted a new application for consideration by the ADPH. She and Miss Derzis have re-written the lease and addressed the concerns voiced by the ADPH. Since the closing of this clinic many women have had a difficult time obtaining abortion services. There is only one clinic operating in Birmingham now and all the other clinics in the surrounding area are 2 hours or more from Birmingham.

      Thanks everyone for supporting the clinic and women's right to choose. The petition has been extended for a few more days. Paperwork has been resubmitted to obtain a license. Please help us continue the pressure on public officials to allow this clinic to be licensed and reopened. Don't let the pro-life bullies win this fight.

      Thanks for your continued support.

      My thanks to all of you who are supporting this petition. Other clinics in Alabama are being targeted. We need to let the Alabama Department of Health know that we support these clinics, and that the prolife bullies should not be allowed to dictate public policy.

      Please share this petition on facebook, Twitter, personal blogs, etc. We need all the support we can get. Keep abortion safe and legal. Keep current clinics open, and allow new clinics to open.

      I am a firm believer in a woman's right to choose her healthcare options.

      Because the government has no business inside of a woman's uterus.

      We need this clinic and the work that it does for the health and welfare of the women of Alabama and we need it now.

      Abortion is legal in this country and denying women the right to seek a legal procedure is wrong. Bowing to force birther terrorism is wrong.

      Women's rights should not be based on religious belief.
