Clinic opens doors to public amidst abortion legislation

McAllen clinic

Abortion clinics across the state could be shut down if the state legislation passes a bill restricting abortion.

The clinic in McAllen usually is a private place, but they lifted their veil today to let the public in to view their facility.

Administrators want the valley to be well informed about their services.

They said closing down clinics in the Rio Grande Valley would be a disservice leaving women without many options.

If the bill is passed in the special session, women and families in the valley would have to travel outside the area to obtain abortion services according to Andrea Ferigno of Whole Woman TMs Health.

Abortions are performed surgically at the McAllen clinic on Main Street up to 17 weeks and six days.
