The most popular abortion facility in west Michigan has closed


(LifeSiteNews) — The most popular abortion facility in west Michigan has closed and is now up for sale.

The former Heritage Women’s Center at 320 Fulton Ave. in downtown Grand Rapids islisted for $999,999 by Berkshire Hathaway.

“Perfect private physician practice and rental for surgical center or use of all the space for your own needs,” the listing page reads. “All equipment is up-to-date and ready for use.”

Dr. Thomas Gordon, who died in August 2023 at age 74, had performed an estimated 2,000 abortions annually at the location since 1987. The 6,543 square-foot property was first listed for sale in March for $1.2 million. No offers appear to have been made thus far.

“320” was the only free-standing surgical abortion facility in the area. A Planned Parenthood office is located several blocks south and surgical abortions started being performed there several months ago, LifeSite has learned.

Grand Rapids is the second largest city in Michigan with a population of over 550,000 in the metro area. Republican U.S. President Gerald Ford (1974-1977) represented the area, which now leans Democrat, in Congress from 1949 until 1973.

LifeSite provided multiple on-the-ground reports on protests that were held at the facility in recent years before its closing.

In May 2020, Dr. Monica Miller and a group of five Red Rose Rescuers, including HeatherIdoni, were arrested at the location for attempting to persuade women not to abort their children.(...)
