There was some very welcome news this week that the second-largest abortion centre in Britain (that performed late-term abortions) has closed down.
When in operation, the clinic, known as ‘The Lodge’ in Streatham, South London performed over 4,000 late-term abortions each year, many of which took place at 20 weeks’ gestation and over.
The closure follows several incidents in recent years at the clinic, including a damning inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in 2019 that brought to light that members of staff had not completed life support training, some had no training in spotting or treating sepsis and other serious deficiencies.
A pro-life group kept having a vigil outside the Streatham clinic for over 25 years offering those entering The Lodge an alternative to abortion. This week their prayers were answers and their unwavering efforts rewarded with the closure of this clinic that took the lives of so many innocent unborn babies and no doubt caused untold suffering to many women who ended up regretting their abortions.
