I’ve written many times (such as here, here, and here) about the bizarre abortion mill in Rockford, Illinois, a place known to have displayed a hanging rubber chicken in a window and whose owner has taunted pro-lifers while dressed in a devil costume.

Conditions inside the mill were known to be as deplorable as on the outside, according to women the local pro-life group spoke with after leaving.

Now, finally, the IL Department of Public Health has shut down the Northern Illinois Women’s Center mill indefinitely. According to MyStateline.com:

According to the suspension notice, “The department found conditions at the facility that are a direct threat to the public interest, health, safety and welfare requiring immediate, emergency action.”

The health department cites numerous alleged violations.

According to records obtained by Rockford’s Pro-Life Initiative, all three operating rooms failed safety inspections, equipment used to sterilize medical instruments failed tests, the clinic failed a requirement that a registered nurse must always be in the operating room, and shoes were stored inside an open box of surgical gloves.

Pro-Life Corner has more.

Importantly, this mill is located near the Wisconsin state line, conveniently located for minors wanting to avoid Wisconsin’s parental involvement law. Thankfully, that gateway is now closed.
