When Dr. Damon Stutes (pictured) tried to get a loan to set up an abortion clinic in Reno, Nevada, banks refused him:

“I went to 12 banks, and they wouldn’t finance me.`Abortion clinic,’ they’d say. They didn’t want anything to do with it. Well, there’ll be a banker’s relative in here someday. I’m sure there already has.”

The article says:

With a mortgage from The Money Store, he built the $1 million clinic in 150 days. Construction workers told local businessmen and residents it was a dental office. Not until it was running, in November, did Stutes call the news media and display his new building.
