Update on Sarasota, Florida, abortion clinic closing

In August we passed on a LifeNews report on the closing of an abortion facility in Sarasota, Florida.

Jim Styer, the local pro-life advocate that the LifeNews article cited, provides this update:
Abortion office really is empty

A final chapter finally is written.

Earlier this year, we reported that the 2nd-trimester abortion mill in Sarasota apparently had closed. It was run by Matthew Kachinas, who except for a brief several months, had done abortions in Sarasota for well over than 15 years. This was the 3rd abortion facility in the community.

Even though the office suite had closed, artifacts of the business still could be seen inside for several months -- reception-area furniture and magazines, office desks and equipment, files and business materials, even cards on a window ledge thanking the abortionist.

In that interim, we wondered about the privacy of the files and patient records.

However, a week ago, one of our periodic checks showed that the offices on S. Tamiami Trail finally were empty. And there are new lease/sale signs on the windows.

Kachinas was reported this summer to have been doing abortions as a "circuit rider" elsewhere in Florida. I just checked the web and found no new info on him. If any of you come across him elsewhere in Florida, please let us know.
Thanks for the update, Jim. Let's keep working and praying. Every abortion facility that closes is like a hit-man going to jail—there may be others out there, but at least there's one less option for murdering the innocent.
