South Bend Abortion Facility Closes its Doors Today

Pro-Choice Community Announces Women’s Pavilion to Close Permanently at 7pm

South Bend– The Women’s Pavilion, according to Pro-Choice South Bend, will close its doors tonight for the foreseeable future. This comes in wake of its loss of clinic license by the Indiana Department of Health in June of 2015 and a cessation of its abortion practice in November of 2015 due to numerous code violations.

The pro-choice community is scheduled to hold a vigil at the time of the closing. Tom Gill, president of SJCRTL, in response to this event said, “While we disagree with any effort to memorialize a business that has brought so much pain and harm to women and their unborn children in our community, we chose not to organize a counter protest and thereby avoid a confrontation that would not benefit either side. We hope that any pro-life presence at this event will be peaceful and prayerful.”

We remember those today who have lost their lives at the Women’s Pavilion and for all women and men who have been affected by abortion in our community for so many decades. We encourage women with crisis pregnancies to seek the many avenues of assistance that are available to them in St. Joseph County that can help them find true healthcare without limiting their choice to abortion.
