An Orlando, Fla., abortion clinic that once made media waves for offering $50 discounts to women who had the procedure on Sundays is again in the national headlines — this time for offering $100 coupons via a YouTube advertisement.

The Orlando Women’s Clinic posted a video touting coupons for $100 off abortions, Life News reported. The ad opens with a defense of the discount.

“There are those that say the Women’s Center are offering women of low income a coupon to have their abortion procedure performed. There are others that say we are targeting the poor and the vulnerable by offering our $100.00 off abortion clinic coupon in the State of Florida. First and foremost, any out-of-state woman is able to use our coupon,” the voice in the ad states, as Life News reported.

It goes on, Life News said: “The $100 off abortion clinic coupon is not just available to the poor or indigent. It is available to all women who wish to use our services for first trimester abortions performed either surgically or by the abortion pill process.”

The abortion pill is given to women who are between three and 24 weeks pregnant, the clinic said in its ad.

The clinic ad wraps, Life News reported: “Please call and ask questions and schedule your appointment today. Please bring in your $100 off abortion clinic coupon at the time of your appointment to receive the discount.”

The particular abortion clinic offering the discount has had a long history of botching the procedure, Life News reported. The clinic was shut down for violations and only recently reopened, the outlet said, and it recently touted an ad for poorer women to save $50 on their abortions if they underwent the procedure on a Sunday.
