First New Abortion Clinic in Oklahoma in 40 Years
Associated Press (Sept. 16, 2016): Oklahoma's First New Abortion Clinic in 40 Years Opens Doors, by Sean Murphy:
In a state where Republicans have passed some of the most draconian restrictions on abortion, six physicians are now providing abortion care and other services at a new clinic opened on Oklahoma City's south side. Oklahoma City had been the largest metropolitan area in the country without an abortion provider. The new clinic will perform somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,500 abortions in its first year, a number that is expected to climb to 3,000 annually.
