Pro-life activists around my home near Manassas, Virginia are celebrating that the town’s abortion clinic, Amethyst Health Center for Women, has closed. I wondered if this news had been located by The Washington Post, with wailing and gnashing of teeth. I hadn’t seen it on my own. A Nexis search confirms there’s been no discovery.
According to local Fox station WTTG, Amethyst is closing because the owner has decided to retire. The 76-year-old widow wanted to remain anonymous but told Fox her reason for shutting down. She said, “When you are in this line of work, you know, I have fought a battle for 27 years. And I did it with love in my heart to help the women. But comes a time in life that you retire.”
