A closed abortion clinic in Birmingham, Ala., has been denied their bid to reopen.
The Life Legal Defense Foundation said the New Woman, All Women clinic stands accused of injuring patients and building code violations.
The violations led to a 76-page deficiency report by the Alabama Department of Public Health.
The clinic owner's license was revoked in May 2012. She then tried to transfer the clinic to a friend using several different methods.
But the two failed to comply with requirements from the state, so Alabama is rejecting their attempt to reopen.
"Each day that this facility remains closed is one more day that babies are saved and women are safe from the dangers of abortion in Birmingham," Rev. Terry Gensemer, executive director of Charismatic Episcopal Church for Life, said.
