Dr. Susan Wicklund to Reopen Abortion Clinic in Bozeman, MT

Associated Press: Doctor plans to reopen abortion clinic in Bozeman:

Medical abortions unavailable here for 10 years will be offered again by June, says the physician who operated Bozeman's only abortion clinic in the 1990s.

"Women should not have to travel over mountain passes and two-lane roads to obtain needed medical care," Dr. Susan Wicklund said.

"It breaks my heart" that women from the Bozeman area must travel to Billings, Missoula, Helena or Kalispell to end unwanted pregnancies, Wicklund told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle in a story Thursday.

Wicklund, 54, said she has been working at other clinics around the state for two years.

Dr. Wicklund is the author of the recently published book, "This Common Secret: My Journey as an Abortion Doctor".  See NYT: Telling the Stories Behind the Abortions and David Garrow Reviews Dr. Susan Wicklund's "This Common Secret".
