New Birthing/Abortion Clinic in New York Could Change Everything
Last month, the first ever birthing center that also houses an abortion clinic opened in Buffalo, New York and it’s called Buffalo WomenServices. The space is one of the first where both the pro-choice and birthing communities coexist beneath the same roof, explicitly. Mind Blown.
The clinic’s website says that their establishment provides “safe, legal and confidential abortion services in a compassionate and supportive setting. Surgical abortions are performed by our OB/GYN physician to 22 weeks. We also provide medical abortion and early surgical abortions.”
Their doctors have admitting privileges at the local hospital, reports Slate, however the physicians along with the registered nurses, social workers, counselors, and trained medical personnel are also focused on giving pregnant women as natural a birthing atmosphere as possible. They even wrote directly to possible clients who might’ve experienced physical abuse, pledging to give “sensitive Gyn Care For the traumatized patient” as well as gyn care for the LGBT communities.
Many women do not get regular gyn care due to a history of abuse or assault. We offer the time and sensitivity required to provide medical care for women who are reluctant to see a gynecologist.
