I received this request from an escort at this clinic let's help them out. I researched the situation and this is a legitimate call to action.
The St of Alabama Dept of Public Health is being inundated with calls from the bully prolifers to shut down New Woman All Women Health Care Clinic in Birmingham, AL now, instead of waiting for possible new management. The Dept of Health needs to hear from EVERYONE who has an interest in women's health care and they need to hear from you NOW!!
Please call the following immediately.
Dr. Donald E. Williamson, State Health Officer
P: (334) 206-5200 F : (334)206-2008
Dr. Walter T. Geary, Medical Director, Bureau of Health Provider Standards
P: (334) 206-5366
AND ESPECIALLY CALL:
Brian Hale, Legal Counsel
P: (334) 206-5209
Please be professional, courteous, and respectful at all times; you may be leaving a message with "just the messenger" or an answering machine, but PLEASE emphasize the following talking points:
My name is _________. I am calling to express my support for the New Woman All Women clinic and its current owener, Diane Derzis.
New Woman All Women has provided excellent care for women in Alabama for two decades – it is essential that the clinic remain open.
I am deeply alarmed by news coverage of anti-abortion extremists demanding closure of the clinic – these extremists, some of whom are violent with lengthy arrest records, have harassed and intimidated women seeking medical services and staff at the clinic for decades.
This clinic was the site of a the most horrific bombing by an anti-abortion extremist and terrorist, Eric Rudolph, in the history of this country.
I urge the department to recognize the extremists for who they are and that they have terrorized bullied women and staff at this facility, and continue to do so even as you leave this message.
I, together with the women of the state of Alabama, urge the Department to keep New Woman All Women open without any interruption in services while continuing to safeguard the health and practices of all medical providers in Alabama.
Thank you for your time.
