New Woman All Women Health Care Birmingham


A judge has ordered a Birmingham clinic to stop performing abortions because the facility isn't licensed to provide them.

   Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge Joseph Boohaker said Thursday that the clinic - New Woman, All Women Health Care - is considered a hospital under state law but doesn't have a current state health board license.

   Health officials cited the clinic for dozens of violations last year and the operators agreed to close. But a doctor was still performing abortions at the site.


Alabama health officials say they're again trying to shut down a Birmingham abortion clinic they claim is operating illegally.

The state asked a judge in Birmingham on Tuesday to close New Woman All Women Health Care, calling it an unlicensed abortion provider.

Operators agreed to shut down the clinic last year after a state investigation found irregularities.

But an attorney for the Department of Public Health, Brian Hale, says the clinic still advertises itself as an abortion provider, and a doctor there still performs the procedure.
