Residents Fight Back after Abortion Business Purchases Danville Property

Local residents of Danville, Illinois are working to stop abortion from coming to their town after an Indiana abortionist purchased property there.

Ladonna Prince, the administrator for an Indianapolis abortion business named "Clinic for Women" was recently found to have purchased a property for a new location in Danville, Illinois. This location is six miles from the Indiana border. Prince would likely use it to circumvent Indiana's pro-life laws.

The Sanctuary Cities For the Unborn initiative is helping Danville residents draft an ordinance that would prevent the clinic from opening.

On March 27, members of the Illinois House of Representatives Freedom Caucus met with residents and held a press conference across the street from the planned abortion facility. Attending members included Representatives Chris Miller (R-Oakland), Adam Niemerg (R-Dieterich), Brad Halbrook (R-Shelbyville), and Dan Caulkins (R-Decatur).

At the press conference, Rep. Miller said, “Women from 31 different states had abortions in Illinois last year. We are rapidly becoming the baby-killing capital of the Midwest. We’re just not allowing killing babies. We are now at the place where we are celebrating it.”

Rep. Niemerg told the press,
“The people of Danville don’t want this abortion clinic in their community. My office has received numerous phone calls from people upset by what’s happening in their own backyard. There seems to be a sinister effort to bring abortion clinics to parts of Illinois that are overwhelmingly pro-life, just to make some sort of point. The far-left has moved far beyond merely making abortion legal. They have become abortion advocates.”

Mark Lee Dickson, Founder of the Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn Initiative, also spoke at the conference. "Ladonna Prince in Indianapolis, Indiana wants to set up here in this city," Dickson said. "Well, the voice of this city is loud and they're saying, 'Not on our watch.'"
