Rockford, IL.- ProLifeCorner.com – March 26, 2011 – Some Of The Horrific Damage Caused By The Rockford Abortion Mill May Soon Be Reversed. We are happy to alert you to an important and long overdue piece of legislation. HB 3156 would require abortion clinics that perform more than 50 abortions a year to meet basic safety regulations of other similar outpatient treatment centers.
By way of history: In order for the notorious abortionist Richard Ragsdale, who was indicted in 1994 on four counts of child pornography, to operate his killing center in the run down building at 1400 Broadway in Rockford, he needed to get some of the laws changed or erased from the books that offered protection for women seeking abortions.
Ragsdale filed suit in 1988 to overturn Illinois laws requiring hospital standards for abortion clinic operating rooms. Ragsdale won his case, and almost all standards were dropped for abortion clincs.

The Rockford abortionist and the Rockford abortion mill desired to operate with few or no standards, and by winning their case, we now have the horror stories of child-killing factories like the one in Philadelphia.
The Chicago Sun-Times in a noteworthy series of articles titled "The Abortion Profiteers", documented the shocking reports of the deaths of at least a dozen women following abortions in the Chicago clinics, revealed unsterile conditions in the clinics, documented abortions performed on women who were not pregnant and others performed without anesthesia, showed premature dismissals from recovery rooms and falsifications of medical records, and uncovered kickbacks paid for abortion referrals.
All of this is a result of the Rockford abortionist and his desire to end the lives of babies in the house of horrors at 1400 Broadway in Rockford.
We are happy to alert you to an important and long overdue piece of legislation. HB 3156 would require abortion clinics that perform more than 50 abortions a year to meet basic safety regulations of other similar outpatient treatment centers. (They have never been regulated.) As you may know, Illinois State Representative Darlene Senger (R-Naperville) has been under attack by pro-abortion groups for her chief sponsorship of this bill.
HB 3156 passed a House Committee on March 15th and is up for consideration in the Illinois House. Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups are doing everything they can to stop this bill and to intimidate Rep. Senger. Recently, abortion-rights supporters planned to picket her district office.
