Whole Woman’s Health, the last abortion clinic in the Rio Grande Valley has closed its doors amid protests.
“We won’t forget” that’s what women of the valley where chanting today outside the whole women’s health clinic located in downtown McAllen.
What they referred to, is the number of women that will no longer have access to medical care at a lost cost and most controversial then they won’t have access to an abortion.
The closure was due to guidelines required by a law known as house bill number 2, which came into effect.
Nineteen clinics have been closed throughout the state leaving only 24 clinic left in the state of Texas.
Now women of the Valley will have to travel to San Antonio to receive a safe abortion.
The evening concluded with a candle passing and the reading of stories of a woman who once came needed the services of the whole women’s health clinic
Women who led today’s event say although the clinic closed they will continue to fight for their rights.
