An abortion clinic will be opening in South Bend, sooner rather than later, according to the owner of the non-profit group Whole Woman’s Health Alliance.
The group’s owner, Amy Hagstrom Miller, has issued a statement saying, as they witness ongoing attempts by the Trump administration to bully and block women who need abortion care, they will be expanding their healthcare work, and that includes opening a clinic in South Bend as soon as they can.
According to the statement, Hagstrom Miller operates independent abortion clinics in five states. The group says the State of Indiana is classified as “extremely hostile” to abortion rights, having passed new laws in recent years to burden women seeking abortion and force clinics to close.
The group has already applied for a license for a clinic in the 3500 block of Lincolnway West.
