Abortions Incognito

Alabama is among 9 states to recently pass super-restrictive abortion laws. While for now abortions are still legal before 20 weeks, they aren’t easy to come by and face relentless, sometimes violent opposition. Clinics offering abortions in the South and the Midwest fell significantly from 2011-2014—some states have just 1 abortion clinic.

With no local doctors able or willing to perform the procedure, a physician who travels from New England in disguise to perform the procedures in Montgomery describes her work. Patients are goaded to tears by anti-choice protestors outside the clinic. While staffers don’t respond to the heckling, some rarely show up for work unarmed.
