Jackson Women’s Health Organization [the only MS abortion business] is required by state law to comply with commonsense standards that apply to legitimate medical centers.
One rule ensures the safety of women by making sure an abortion practitioner has admitting privileges at a local hospital in case of a seriously botched abortion.
The two out-of-state abortion practitioners at the JWHO abortion center do not have local privileges.
NC-based National Women’s Health Organization operates the abortion facility.
Since JWHO stopped performing the second-trimester abortions in mid-February, the abortion site has referred about 25 women to an abortion center in Alabama.
