Frederick, Maryland

We’ve learned of the closure of the American Women’s Services abortion center in Maryland, which had been the site of seven 40 Days for Life campaigns as well as an ongoing regular prayer presence.

“We are full of joy and thanking God,” said Dolores, the local leader, who was also appreciative of 40 Days for Life, “which was started in Frederick in 2008, for helping its closing.”

The prayers were answered. The building’s owner sold the property, and the new owner is a general medical practice that does not do abortions.

With the closure, the Frederick team has moved its vigil to a Planned Parenthood center. This business does not do abortions, but it does offer the morning-after pill and abortion referrals.

    If American Women’s Services which was previously owned by Steven Brigham and then transferred to sex offender Vikram Kaji is still the case, I don’t know if my research is right but this is especially a great accomplishment to close an abortion clinic but also one run by American Woman’s Services comes with its’ own rewards. The Frederick vigilers are my heroes!
