Iowa Abortion Center Marks 35 Years Hurting Women and Children in Abortions

Iowa City, IA (LifeNews.com) — An eastern Iowa abortion business is marking 35 years of doing abortions, but one leading pro-life advocate says all the Emma Goldman Clinic has to show for itself is a history of hurting women and children and preying on the college students at the University of Iowa.
The Emma Goldman Clinic abortion center is planning a gala event on Thursday night to mark the occasion.
It’s web site describes the abortion facility as the first in Iowa — with abortions coming just nine months after the Supreme Court handed down its Roe v. Wade decision allowing virtually unlimited abortions any time in pregnancy.
The event is expected to focus on the namesake founder of the abortion center and Candace Falk, director of the Emma Goldman Papers, an archive of papers on Goldman located at the University of California-Berkeley, will be the featured speaker.
Kim Lehman, the president of Iowa Right to Life, tells LifeNews.com there is nothing to celebrate.
"If success is measured by the number of unborn children killed, then Emma Goldman can brag to their abortion supporters that in their college town, Iowa City, they have achieved the highest rate of abortions in the U.S. per capita," she explained.
"However, the subject of abortion won’t be on the agenda, nor how they seduce young women to get them," Lehman added.
"It won’t be discussed that taxpayers fund abortions at Emma Goldman," she said.
The only legacy the abortion business has in Lehman’s eyes is that "Emma Goldman is where the University of Iowa sends college girls to have their babies killed."
