MSNBC Publishes Op-Ed by Caitlin Gerdts on Burdens of Clinic Closures
MSNBC.

An op-ed in MSNBC by TxPEP's Caitlin Gerdts discusses the burden that the closure of abortion clinics in Texas places on women. Gerdts discusses the increased travel distances and costs for women in the TxPEP study whose nearest clinics had closed. She writes, "For women who are struggling just to make ends meet and care for their families, these additional burdens may mean the difference between being able to obtain the health care they need or not."
