WE Health Clinic seeing patients from farther away, but not a big surge in numbers
Two months after the Roe v. Wade decision was reversed, the WE Health Clinic in Duluth shared how they’re doing.
Paulina Briggs, lab supervisor and patient educator told us, “We have had a handful of patients who have had to travel, from areas of Wisconsin that we wouldn’t normally see. A couple from Texas, traveling up. A couple from South Dakota and North Dakota. It hasn’t impacted our numbers that much.”
She explained they had already been seeing more abortions before the reversal.
They are ready to ramp up staff if they need to add more days for abortions, but at this point, do not feel they need to.
Briggs told us the state court ruling that removes certain restrictions has made a bigger impact.
