A Rockford, Illinois, abortion clinic that opened in 1973 has closed its doors.
The state ordered its closure because of conditions that violated public health. During its nearly 40-year history, the clinic had been the site of protests.
In 2000, the-then pastor of St. Patrick Parish in Rochelle pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal damage to property after he drove his automobile into a closed garage door at the clinic, and then used an ax to open other doors and move about inside the building.
