Michiganabortionclinic4On April 7, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette announced that he has filed a lawsuit to shut down the Summit Women’s Center abortion clinic in Detroit. The abortion clinic has been operating illegal for nearly a year. Summit Women’s Center is the oldest abortion clinic in the state of Michigan.

From the press release:

Summit Women’s Center provides medical services through Summit of Detroit, P.C., a professional corporation. But, in its May 2015 annual report to the state, Summit P.C. reported that David Lipton—not a licensed physician—was now Summit P.C.’s sole officer, director, and owner and that Summit P.C. had changed its corporate purpose to “management company,” which is not a lawful purpose for a professional corporation. The report also falsely certified that David Lipton was licensed to provide professional medical services.

The Attorney General is bringing this action to halt the clinic from providing medical care to patients at the Summit Women’s Center, to dissolve Summit P.C., and to investigate the possible fraudulent formation of Summit P.C.

Summit has been in the news before. They hired abortionist Robert Alexander after his abortion clinic in Muskegon was closed by authorities and hired infamous abortionist Reginald Sharpe after his clinics were closed as well.
