Illinois abortion clinic shut down for health violations
An abortion clinic in Illinois has been shut down indefinitely for health violations. The Northern Illinois Women's Center in Rockford had its license suspended by the Illinois Department of Health after failing a follow-up inspection. The clinic was inspected in June of 2011 and received a plan of correction but when inspectors returned in September, they still found numerous health violations.
