Reproductive health clinic opening in Carbondale
CARBONDALE, Ill. (KBSI) – A reproductive health clinic is opening in Carbondale.
Choice Clinic is a reproductive health clinic based in Memphis with locations in several states.
The announcement came on Monday and had a lot of community members speaking out at Tuesday’s city council meeting. Opinions were mixed about the clinic’s arrival.
Tennessee is expected to ban most abortions once the Supreme Court releases its decision.
The Memphis Choice Clinic will no longer be able to provide abortions.
People looking for help will instead need to go to Carbondale, Illinois but the Memphis Choice Clinic still plans to be there for the community in any way they can.
The new clinic in Carbondale is hoping to open sometime in August.
