At we reported on all sorts of stories that affect the pro-life community, but few provide us with the kind of elation we get when we can report that an abortion business has closed its doors — even if only temporarily. Not only do women and unborn children benefit, but fathers, families and the community do as well.

Benjamin Clapper, the Executive Director of Louisiana Right to Life share the good news with us.

“It appears that the Causeway Medical Clinic in Metairie, one of the largest abortion facilities in Louisiana, has closed its doors, at least for the time being,” Clapper said. “For the past few weeks, the facility has not been open and their phones have been answered by an affiliated abortion facility in Bossier City.  The receptionist in Bossier City has stated that the facility in Metairie is “temporarily closed” and is unaware of when it might reopen.”
“Today, it was reported individuals were on site at Causeway Medical Clinic clearing out the building, including removing boxes, carpet, and other supplies.  Details remain scarce, and for all we know, the facility may reopen at this location or in another location.  For now, however, recent reports indicate the facility has closed,” he continued.

Clapper said abortions are till being performed on unborn babies on a regular basis at “Women’s Health Care Center” in New Orleans and he said its web site states that it is the “Only Abortion Clinic in the Greater New Orleans Area.” At the same time, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast continues to building its regional abortion facility on Claiborne Avenue, only a few blocks from the “Women’s Health Care Center.”

“Over the years, the Causeway Medical Clinic facility has performed thousands and thousands of abortions, killing unborn children and damaging the lives of women and families.  With alternatives to abortion readily available, we don’t need abortion facilities profiting off the destruction of human life.  Join me today in remembering the lives lost within that facility, and praying that abortions never resume at that site,” Clapper said.

He concluded: “We encourage pro-life individuals in the greater New Orleans area to be peacefully and legally present to pray for and offer life-affirming resources to the women and men at the “Women’s Health Care Center.”  Your voice, your prayers, and your presence can make a difference. ”
