Lawsuits, bankruptcy lead to more abortion clinic closures in Michigan

Some times abortion advocates argue that providing abortions isn't a profitable business. I guess in some cases that could be correct if the abortionist (like Reginald Sharpe) keeps botching abortions and getting sued.
Livonia’s last remaining abortion clinic — The Women’s Advisory Center at 27549 W. Six Mile Road — permanently closed Saturday after operating in the city for more than 30 years.

Owner Dr. Reginald Sharpe, of Grosse Pointe Park, filed for bankruptcy Oct. 15 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, alleging assets of up to $50,000 and liabilities of $100,001 to $500,000. He was also the subject of three lawsuits, one filed April 29, 2011, by the family of a 26-year-old Detroit woman who died following an abortion performed by Sharpe, the other two filed Aug. 30, 2012, by women who said their reproductive organs were damaged as a result of abortions by Sharpe. One of the women had to have a hysterectomy.

Sharpe could not be reached for comment Tuesday afternoon. Someone who answered a call to the clinic phone number Tuesday said simply, “The office is closed.” A message was left for Sharpe......

Sharpe owned clinics in Bloomfield Hills and Warren, which also have been closed, Miller said.

Sharpe has a long history of unsavory practices. has 4 reviews of Sharpe's Woman Advisory Center in Detroit, 3 of which give 1 star.
