Just a reminder that Texas is NOT a small state.
Texarkana to El Paso is 816 miles.
It looks like there’s one in the DFW area. One around Austin. Maybe some around Beumont or the Houston area and the San Antonio area.
Let’s talk about some places that will now be far from an abortion clinic.
Lubbock. I know it well. I lived there for a year when I went to Texas Tech. Yep, a college city. HUGE campus and just a lot of students. 117,411 women live in Lubbock County. I would guess that the clinic around Dallas would be the closest at 340 miles, almost a six hour drive.
Midland. 57,074 women. It appears that Austin would be closer at 320 miles, also around a six hour drive.
Then good ol’ El Paso. 339,278 women. If they wanted to get an abortion in Texas, Austin would be the closest. 577 miles, or an eight hour drive.
Five abortion clinics for the whole state of Texas? That will lead to unsafe procedures done in cities like these three.
