Whole Woman's Health Alliance has announced that it will remain open to provide abortions following a ruling issued today 

by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. 

Whole Woman’s Health of South Bend has been open and seeing patients since June.

"Today’s decision is a win for the people of Northern Indiana needing abortion care. The Indiana Department of Health has created an undue burden for those seeking to end a pregnancy, attempting to further stigmatize abortion and obstruct the ability to receive that care in the community.For the past two years, we have worked tirelessly to open our clinic and provide patients in Michiana with safe, compassionate abortion care. We are elated by today’s ruling,” says Amy Hagstrom Miller, President/CEO of Whole Woman's Health Alliance. 

St. Joseph County Right to LIfe posted the following comment on Facebook following today's ruling: 

"The appeals court, by granting a license without state authority to an abortion chain with a history of health and safety violations, has overstepped its boundaries to pander to the abortion lobby."
