Bossier City Medical Suite, an abortion facility in Bossier City, Louisiana, has closed its doors. From 2006 to 2015, 7,482 children were reportedly killed through abortion at the location.

According to an announcement by Louisiana Right to Life, in a letter filed as a public record in the federal case June Medical Services LLC, et al v. Rebekah Gee, et al, Louisiana Right to Life learned that the facility had closed, and that its outpatient license was returned to the Louisiana Department of Health. In addition, a moving trailer was reportedly spotted at the facility on April 11, 2017.

Bossier City Medical Suite provided both surgical and medical abortions, and had sued the state of Louisiana in 2014 in an attempt to stop the pro-life Unsafe Abortion Protection Act. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal had signed that act into law to ensure that abortionists had admitting privileges at local hospitals in order to protect women injured during abortions.

“With the closure of Bossier City Medical Suite, there is one less facility in Louisiana destroying the lives of innocent unborn babies,” said Benjamin Clapper, executive director of Louisiana Right to Life. “[…] We encourage the pro-life community to continue its efforts to provide help to mothers and babies, both before and after birth. We look forward to a day when all babies are protected by law and welcomed with joy.”

The closing of Bossier City Medical Suite leaves just three abortion facilities in the state of Louisiana: Delta Clinic in Baton Rouge, the Women’s Health Center in New Orleans, and Hope Medical Clinic for Women in Shreveport.
