Following the murder conviction of abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell, the North Carolina health department has shut down an abortion clinic.

Yesterday, Gosnell was found guilty of three first degree murder charges for murdering children at his abortion clinic in Philadelphia in gruesome abortion-infanticide procedures.

Also, yesterday, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services suspended the license of  A Preferred Women’s Health Clinic, the busiest abortion clinic in Charlotte. Officials said they discovered vile and filthy conditions at it.

Meanwhile, two of Charlotte’s leading abortion practitioners, Curtis Flood and Harvey Harris, are no longer doing abortions in Charlotte or anywhere else.

“Monday was a very bad day for the abortion industry in Charlotte,” local pro-life activist Pat McEwen told LifeNews. “The abortion industry would have us believe [Kermit Gosnell] is an anomaly. He is not. He is the norm and here is the proof.”

“Fewer abortionists, fewer abortion mills, fewer abortions: The battle for the lives of preborn children is being won in cities across this nation,” McEwen added.

A local news report indicates pro-life advocates are not the only ones glad to see the abortion facility closed.

I’m delighted that the place is closed down,” said Debbie Lang, who owns a dog boarding business across the street from the clinic.

Lang is openly pro choice, but says the clinic brought problems to the office park.

“A couple of the girls would come up here asking us to use the telephone, or they didn’t have a ride home,” Lang said.

The 12 page report from DHHS spells out several alleged violations committed at the clinic.

The report says the clinic presents an “imminent danger to the health, safety and welfare of the clients,” and alleges employees administered medications improperly, lowering the effectiveness.



“One girl looked kind of ill,” Lang said, who also said people protesting the clinic caused problems too.

WBTV went to the clinic to ask questions about the report, and even saw employees looking out through the blinds, but no one would answer the door.
