Texas Abortion Biz Stops Abortions Thanks to Abortion Ban, Puts Building Up for Sale

A late-term abortionist appears to be selling his Dallas, Texas abortion facility building now that the state protects unborn babies’ right to life.

Live Action News reports late-term abortionist Curtis Boyd still runs an abortion facility in New Mexico that aborts unborn babies through the third trimester, but he stopped abortions his Texas facility once the U.S. Supreme Court began allowing states to protect unborn babies from abortion again.

For many years, Boyd owned and ran the Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center, located at 8616 Greenville Ave. in Dallas. However, the building is now for sale at a price tag of $5.7 million on the real estate website Loopnet.com, according to the report.

“Maybe Curtis Boyd is selling his clinic to open a new clinic, or to fortify his existing clinic, or retire to his farm in Athens, Texas, which will soon be a sanctuary city for the unborn,” Abortion on Trial senior counsel Mike Seibel told Live Action News.

Seibel helped the family of the late Keisha Atkins sue Boyd and others who work for him after Atkins died along with her unborn baby after a late-term abortion at his Albuquerque abortion facility. The case settled this spring with the abortion facility agreeing to pay her family $900,000 in the wrongful death/medical malpractice lawsuit.

Earlier this year, Right to Life of East Texas uncovered evidence that Boyd allegedly killed 10,000 unborn babies in illegal abortions in Athens, Texas, in the years leading up to Roe v. Wade.

In a video deposition in the recent case Whole Woman’s Health v. Paxton, Boyd said he began doing abortions in Athens in 1968, according to the organization. Texas protected unborn babies’ right to life until 1973 when it was forced to legalize abortions up to viability through Roe. Boyd estimated that he did approximately 5,000 abortions per year for about two years before moving to Dallas, according to information provided by the pro-life organization.

Last year, Texas became the first state to enforce a heartbeat law, which bans abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, since 1973. Pro-life leaders estimate tens of thousands of unborn babies’ lives have been saved so far.

After the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe in June, Texas banned all abortions. Exceptions are allowed if the mother’s life is at risk. Currently, 14 other states also protect unborn babies by banning abortions, and eight additional states are fighting in court to do so.

Meanwhile, pro-life advocates are working to expand support for mothers and babies in need, through maternity homes, pregnancy centersfinancial assistance, health care and more to help women overcome crises and choose life for their babies.
