BRISTOL, Virginia (LifeSiteNews) — A Virginia abortion clinic was recently sued by their landlords, who claim that they were unaware that their leased space would be used to kill the unborn.  

Kilo Delta LLC, which is owned by brothers Chase and Chadwick King, filed a lawsuit on December 7 against Bristol Women’s Health, the organization’s owner, and a doctor involved in founding the abortion business. The brothers are requesting a termination of the lease; the defendants have until December 28 to respond to the lawsuit. 

The building owners argue that those who opened the facility “willfully concealed” their intent to commit abortions in the space, according to a local news report. They added that Kilo Delta LLC “has suffered great financial loss and lost business opportunity; been forced to suffer in its reputation and endure humiliation within their business and social circles; [and] been required to endure great mental anguish.” 

“According to the suit…the Kings were told in May that a prospective tenant was interested in a small office building they had available for lease near the Bristol Casino,” the Cardinal News article continues. “A letter of intent from the tenant’s real estate broker listed the proposed use of the building as a ‘medical clinic.’ The suit claims that in conversations, the broker ‘represented that the type of medical practice of her clients was a general family practice’.” 

Diane Derzis, the owner of the abortion business, blames the brothers for not knowing about the clinic, saying that “she has never tried to hide what she does.” Upon learning that the facility was going to be used as an abortion clinic, the Kings stated that they were “morally opposed” to this practice and “would never have leased the property” to the organization had they known their intentions. 

“The broker tried to negotiate an amendment to the lease agreement that would allow only medical abortions within the first 10 weeks of pregnancy, but the Kings refused and demanded that the lease be terminated. The defendants instead moved forward with work on the clinic, the suit said.” 

The lawsuit seeks to end the lease agreement as well as “unspecified monetary damages.” 

LifeSiteNews contacted the plaintiff’s attorney’s office for further information about the complaint but did not immediately receive a response.

UPDATE (3/30/23): Fr. Fidelis is jailed along with another pro-life hero

Father Fidelis has been sentenced to 270 days in jail by a Michigan court, while fellow Red Rose rescuer Matthew Connolly was sentenced to 90 days in jail and told to pay fines.

A witness to the sentencing hearing reported that the judge had called Fr. Fidelis, a priest of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal who has dedicated his life to the unborn, “a fraud in habit.”

Like their companions Elizabeth Wagi and Jacob Gregor, who received lighter penalties, Moscinski and Connolly were pronounced guilty of “trespassing, resisting arrest, and disturbing the peace/interfering with a business” on February 24, 2023 at the 46th District Courthouse in Southfield, Michigan.

Wagi received 18 months’ probation with fines and was ordered not to go anywhere near an abortion facility or her co-defendants. Gregor got 12 months’ probation with fines and 10 days community service. He was told not to speak to convicted church members.

LifeSiteNews is still awaiting news of Dr. Monica Miller and Laura Gies, who were found guilty of trespassing and resisting arrest.

The Southfield trial stemmed from a Red Rose Rescue at the Northland Family Planning abortion center, one of three abortion centers owned and operated by Renee Chelian, on April 23, 2021.


UPDATE (1/24/23): 

Pro-life priest and Red Rose Rescuer Fr. Fidelis Moscinski has been found guilty of violating the Freedom to Access Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act. 

Yesterday Fr. Fidelis was convicted of the federal crime for a July 2022 “lock and block” rescue he conducted at a Planned Parenthood in Hempstead, New York. The priest is scheduled to be sentenced on April 24 and faces up to six months in federal prison. 

Sign the petition to let Fr. Fidelis know you support him and are praying for him.


UPDATE (10/26/22): 

A Pennsylvania court issued a split ruling against a pro-life Franciscan priest and activist arrested after he entered an abortion clinic to help women choose life.

Father Christopher “Fidelis” Moscinski was found guilty of two misdemeanor charges and not guilty of a felony trespass and a misdemeanor resist, for participating in a Red Rose Rescue at a Planned Parenthood.

Fr. Moscinski entered the clinic on August 27, 2021 with red roses and pro-life literature ready to hand out to women and persuading them to choose life for their children.

Fr. Fidelis has participated in many Red Rose Rescues at abortion centers, and for this has been imprisoned multiple times.

He was also previously arrested for trying to save babies in Ohio in June 2021 and in New Jersey in January 2020.

After the court decision, Fr. Fidelis urged people to “continue keeping all pro-lifers anywhere who are facing charges, especially federal charges, in your prayers, and that God can bring some good out of this unjust persecution.”

Sign this petition today to let Fr. Fidelis know you stand with him and his heroic fight to save unborn lives from abortion.

Fellow pro-life activist and Red Rose Rescuer Will Goodman told LifeSite’s Jim Hale that the court’s ruling to drop one felony and reject another was a “big victory.”But the crackdown on pro-lifers continues!

Just recently the Biden administration targeted Fr. Fidelis and other pro-life activists for Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE) violation charges.

This same law was also used by the FBI to raid the home of pro-life Catholic dad Mark Houck last month.

It’s really a disgrace that in America pro-lifers are increasingly being attacked and persecuted simply because they stand for life.

Fr. Fidelis Moscinski needs your prayers and support now more than ever as he continues to fearlessly battle for the unborn.

SIGN THIS PETITION TODAY to tell Fr. Fidelis you stand with him and his courageous fight!

The building’s owners initially expressed concern when they learned that the doctor who signed the lease alongside the clinic’s owner is an abortionist from Tennessee. This information was realized after the lease was signed in June and less than a month before Roe v. Wade was overturned. 

Bristol Women’s Health offers only abortions at their facility. According to the organization’s website, women can obtain abortion pills up to 11 weeks’ gestation, and surgical abortions are committed up to 16 weeks. 

The Bristol Regional Women’s Center, an abortion clinic located in Bristol, Tennessee—the state line between Virginia and Tennesse runs through the city—also killed the unborn through medication and surgical abortions up to 14 weeks. Their website states that the centre offers “most types of gynecological services.” 

This abortion business was forced to stop committing abortions in the Tri-Cities area when, after Roe’s reversal, Tennessee’s two-year-old ban on aborting babies with beating hearts took effect, as previously reported by LifeSiteNews. The ban, initially signed in 2020 by Republican Gov. Bill Lee, insists that an ultrasound is performed by a doctor before committing an abortion. If a heartbeat is detected, the abortion is not allowed to take place.

Dr. Wesley Adams, one of the defendants in the current lawsuit and a doctor at the Regional Women’s Center, supported the opening of the Virginia clinic, which does not face the same abortion limitations as Tennessee facilities. The state of Virginia currently allows abortion on demand through 28 weeks and even until birth for certain “health” reasons.  

In October, the Bristol City Council voted to pass a zoning resolution to prohibit the building and expansion of abortion facilities within city limits. Although it requires further steps to become law, the resolution would prevent abortion clinics from moving or expanding their facilities from Tennessee to Virginia to avoid statewide bans.
