Infamous Pink Abortion Clinic That Prompted Supreme Court to Overturn Roe Closes Down

The infamous abortion facility at the center of the case that overturned Roe v. Wade is no longer in business.

Nicknamed the “Pink House” because of its bright pink exterior, the Jackson Women’s Health Organization (the Jackson in Dobbs v. Jackson) aborted unborn babies for many years and was the only abortion facility in Mississippi after 2004.

Now, Mississippi protects unborn babies by banning abortions, and the “Pink House” is no more. The abortion facility stopped aborting unborn babies last year and later was sold. This week, the pro-abortion blog Jezebel reports the building has been repainted white and soon will house a consignment store, Hunt The Shop.

Here’s more from the report:

Gulf States Newsroom reporter Shalina Chatlani shared a photo of the former clinic’s new exterior on Tuesday, calling it “surreal” and adding that the building is in a “highly gentrified neighborhood” known as Fondren.

The news of the store taking over was first reported in January, but renovations on the 3,000 square foot building had just begun.

Shop owner David Carpenter told NBC News that he did not want to comment on the politics of abortion.

“I really don’t want to get into the political side of it,” he said in January. “That was then. This is now. I want to do something that the community will embrace. I want it to be a positive thing.”

The overturning of Roe has been positive for Mississippi. Approximately 5,000 more babies are expected to be born this year as a result of its new pro-life laws, according to Christianity Today. And pro-life advocates and lawmakers are working to expand support for pregnant and parenting mothers and children across the state.

Meanwhile, the former abortion facility owner, Diane Derzis, recently moved to Bristol, Virginia and opened a new abortion facility. Already, she faces two lawsuits, including one accusing her staff of pressuring a teenage girl into an abortion and hiding it from the girl’s parents.
