Illinois facility halts abortions, continues actual ‘women’s health’ services
Until recently, Women’s Health Practice (WHP) in Champaign —home of to the main campus of the University of Illinois— had been doing abortions up to 24 weeks. But this morning we heard from local pro-life activist Renee Mullen, who informed us that WHP is no longer doing abortions at all! What’s more, all mentions of the word “abortion” appear to have been removed entirely from the Women’s Health Practice website.
WHP had been the site of 40 Days for Life prayer campaigns in the fall of 2017 and the spring of 2018, and Renee had also led a Peace in the Womb Christmas caroling event there in December 2017. When she contacted WHP to ask why they were no longer doing abortions, she was told it was due to “picketers” and that WHP didn’t want “picketers hurting their other business.”
