Where Are the Abortion Providers

If you are in the market to terminate a pregnancy, the Daily Beast has created a very interesting and well-done interactive map of where you can find such a service in relation to where you are, and also what kind of restrictions you will find when you get there. (Of particular interest: Mississippi’s last abortion clinic.)

Unfortunately, you cannot use the tool to find the address of the actual clinic closest to you—”exact clinic locations in this map have been obscured to be neither visible nor retrievable”—because even though you might use that information to undergo a legal (FOR NOW) medical procedure, others might use it to murder doctors and nurses. And that is the world we live in, ta da!

Worth noting: while the clinic in Jackson, Mississippi is in the news a lot right now because the state is trying to shut it down with a new TRAP (targeted regulation of abortion providers) and it looks like MS will soon be the first state in the country with no providers, there are three other states with only one surgical provider- Arkansas, North Dakota, and South Dakota. And the Dakotas are BIG ASS STATES to only have one provider each.

Logan you are spot-on all over the place today. (the subtly of subtitling this baby “mississippi goddamn”) Thank you. Looking forward to seeing the new documentary movie, “After Tiller.” http://www.chickeneggpics.org/films/83-After%20Tiller
