Whole Woman's Health to Open New Mexico Clinic



September 1 was supposed to be the day that HB 2's ambulatory surgical center restriction was implemented {in Texas}, which would have shut down all but a few abortion clinics along the I-35 corridor.

-snip-

And this morning, Texans received even more good news: Whole Woman's Health will open a new clinic in New Mexico this month to help fill the gap in abortion access that that HB 2 has created.

Whole Woman's Health in Las Cruces, New Mexico will open on September 15 to serve women from southern New Mexico, Juarez, West Texas, and surrounding areas.

In New Mexico, state Medicaid covers abortion procedures. Additionally, the state has not passed the TRAP laws that turn a 15-minute procedure into a two-day affair, so the Las Cruces facility will perform same-day abortions.

1. 20 minutes or so from El Paso

That clinic should help a lot now that Texas has widened its war against women. That it will also serve part of northern Mexico is also a big deal.

There's a pilot legal abortion program in Mexico City, but that's too far to travel from northern Mexico. So far the priests are winning the war against women there. I don't think they will for much longer, though, they've been under fire for organized pedophilia there, too.

2. Mexico offers Americans healthcare as they are welcome to pay the premiums like its citizens.

I am thinking that the New Mexico clinic may accept Mexico's healthcare coverage. Most respectfully: Can someone respond who is in the know?
