The State of Our Clinics
The State of Our Clinics:
- In the past two years, Louisiana has lost two abortion clinics. In February 2016, the clinic in Metairie, Causeway Medical, closed, following the retirement of its physician. In April 2017, Bossier City Medical Suite closed.
- At this time, clinics are open in New Orleans (Women's Health Care Center), Baton Rouge (Delta Clinic), and Shreveport (Hope Medical Group).
- NOAF cautions prosepctive patients to use caution when visiting clinics other than the ones mentioned above. Sometimes, anti-choice organizations run places that look like abortion clinics, but do not actually offer services. These "clinics" (often called crisis pregnancy centers) may not have medical staff on site, and may not tell the truth about abortion care.
