Brighton, England ( — A leading British abortion business is opening a massive new abortion center in Brighton that could do as many as 1,500 abortions annually. The British Pregnancy Advisory Service’s Wistons Clinic is technically re-opening after a $2 million UK refurbishment.

The renovations took six months to complete and now the center features a bigger waiting room, new medical equipment, accessed for disabled people, and more individual rooms.

According to the Argus Lite newspaper, the new center will have over 4,000 customers annually, some of whom will obtain legitimate medical services.

The paper indicated the renovations were done with the help of Brighton and Hove City Primary Care Trust and the Healthcare Commission.

While abortion centers are worried about expanding their businesses, a March report found half of all hospitals in England under the nation’s health care service turned away expectant mothers because they were too full.

The news could prompt some women who fear a lack of proper medical care to have abortions and one pro-life watchdog says he’s concerned about the implications for the U.S.

The government data revealed larger hospitals were more likely to turn away pregnant women while smaller hospitals and medical clinics were less likely to be full.

About 42 percent of the medical facilities report turning expectant mothers away at least once during 2007 and nine percent did that more than 10 times.
