Rockford Clinic Closing For Good

Robin Marty

Despite finally getting permission to reopen, the clinic is going to remain shuttered.

Despite making the required “necessary” changes needed after the enforcement of a TRAP law, a clinic in Northern Illinois is reporting that it has decided not to reopen after all.

Via ABC News:

The Rockford Register-Star is reporting Friday that the Northern Illinois Women’s Center in Rockford will not reopen, even after working out an agreement with state regulators.

The newspaper reports the clinic was having trouble hiring new staff.

Anti-abortion groups had promised to continue picketing if the clinic reopened. Kevin Rilott of the Rockford Pro-Life Initiative calls the closure “a blessing.”

The Rockford clinic had been repeatedly targeted by anti-choice protesters, including a fight over parking access to the clinic when a group parked a large mobile ultrasound unit outside the clinic.
