VACAVILLE, Calif. - A church-funded pregnancy clinic that counsels expectant mothers on alternatives to abortion is suing the owner of a medical office building for refusing to lease space to the organization.
Alpha Pregnancy Clinics of Northern California signed a lease in October to move its current Vacaville location in a small strip center behind a grocery store into the Nut Tree Road Medical Arts Center.
"We're bursting at the seams," executive director Diedre Eckle said. "But we'd also like to relocate to a place that's more medical."
Eckle said among the medical services offered by her clinic are no-cost ultrasounds.
"It's a piece of education that sometimes is the difference between them choosing life for their child or abortion," she said.
