ORLANDO, Fla. -

An Orlando abortion clinic, which has recently reopened after being shut down over debt collection, is creating buzz online again for offering coupons for abortions.

The Orlando Women's Center posted a coupon on its website for $50 off the cost of the procedure done on Sundays.

The center also advertises other "specials" on its website, including an ad that pops up on the website's homepage.

Dr. James Pendergraft's clinic was closed in June after its equipment was seized as debt collection. Pendergraft lost his license in April after being accused of performing botched and illegal abortions.

Pendergraft doesn't have his license back yet, but says he's reopened with six other physicians.

Local 6 reached out to Pendegraft for a comment, but has not heard back yet.
