A woman seeking to replace racist Alabama State Rep. Alvin Holmes responded to his comments in which he said white would encourage abortion if their daughters were impregnated by a black man.
"He said that being pro life was for white people, that's not true. Pro life is loving babies whether they're inside the womb or outside of the womb. Whether you're black or white - it doesn't have a color," said Tijuanna Adetunji.
An accidental break room fire at Martin Haskell’s Indianapolis abortion clinic caused $30,000 worth of damage. While all patients had left, five clinics staffers were there at the time.
The University of Georgia paper, the Red and the Black, has a number of pictures showing pro-choice students attempting to cover up a recent prolife display which includes images of abortion victims. One pro-choice student’s sign indicates she thinks legal abortion ended women dying from unsafe abortions.
Whole Woman’s Health is closing 2 clinics in Texas.
Whole Woman’s Health in Beaumont and McAllen will close after providing abortions in the areas for a decade. Amy Hagstrom Miller, president of Whole Woman’s Health, which operated five abortion clinics before the law went into effect, said the provision requiring physicians to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic was proving the most problematic.
Miller said hospitals near her McAllen clinic refused to grant her physicians’ applications for privileges. Some hospitals in the area require their privileged physicians to live nearby. Others require a current physician to co-sign applications for privileges, which many are unwilling to do for fear of being targeted or stigmatized.
In Beaumont, one 75-year-old physician secured privileges, but a second one could not, Miller said.
