BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The New Woman All Women Health Clinic in Birmingham is coming down.

Crews began demolishing the former abortion clinic over the weekend.

The clinic was the site of a bombing in 1998 by Eric Rudolph, who is now serving a life sentence in prison. Rudolph was also responsible for the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Park bombing and two others.

The clinic was also under investigation in 2013 for allegedly still performing abortions after surrendering its license.
