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.
