What's behind the disappearance of abortion clinics?

From 2018 to 2019, U.S. states have introduced tough abortion bans that restrict women's terminations, and the wave of discussion has spread to Taiwan, where the first hearing on October 21st called for a referendum on abortion to be performed within eight weeks of pregnancy.

At the moment we are arguing about terminating the pregnancy, but under the bill, there is an action lurking.

Missouri could become the first U.S. region to have "no abortion clinics," according to Vox.

In Missouri, only one clinic left to perform abortions

In fact, as early as May this year, because the government did not agree to renew the license, the Planned Parenthood clinic in the St. Louis area of Missouri, the last clinic in Missouri to perform abortions, faced the fate of closure. Meanwhile, Missouri passed the Heartbeat Act in May.

The abortion clinic was accused by government officials of not performing the procedure well enough and issued a statement in June explaining:

"Significant medical evidence is being sought from the accident to identify actual cases and deviations that do not meet the standards and may result in injury to the patient." 」
Reviewing incidents with with the plus-time medical evidence where where to aeda's instances and deviations from the standard care, resulting in serious patient harm.

It is not known at this time whether the allegations of closure are true and whether the abortion clinic was negligent in the process.

Government officials asked health care providers to be interviewed or not renew the clinic's license, but doctors at the planned parenting organization refused to come forward and chose to file a lawsuit in court. The court later issued a temporary injunction allowing clinics to open temporarily while allowing continued assistance in assisting abortions.

After six months of fighting and debate, the case begins on October 28th with a week-long hearing on whether the Planned Parenthood clinic can be licensed and whether Missouri will become the first zero-abortion clinic.

Is this a quieter anti-abortion move?

What's behind the disappearance of abortion clinics?

Missouri passed an abortion ban in May, but the bill was blocked by U.S. District Court Judge Howard Sachs on August 27, the day before the ban went into effect. However, strict bans and controls on abortion clinics, when the bill did not take effect, were seen as another wave of quieter anti-abortion actions.

According to Vox, Planned Parenthood said that even if the clinic was open, there were more than a million pregnant women in Missouri who could rely on the independent care center for abortion care, and that pregnant women in Missouri would not be able to perform abortions locally through legal channels if the clinic was forced to close. They had to travel to other states with abortion clinics.

In the United States, however, the majority of people who have abortions are low-income households, and if they have to go abroad for medical treatment, they are bound to increase time and financial pressure, which is in fact disguised as reducing the chances of abortion.

Since 2010, some states have passed partial bans that affect abortion clinics and force them to close. While the current abortion clinic in Missouri is linked to regular inspections, Bonyen Lee-Gilmore, director of media communications at Planned Parenthood, says the situation is similar to in Louisiana, where government officials use the name of safety and health under false prece. It's actually using inspection procedures to block abortion in the state.

After the first hearing in Taiwan, women's physical autonomy and the right to life were again the subject of discussion, pulling back from the Case from the United States to examine Taiwan, and under discussion of the bill, there was intimidation of baby culture, Why can we not prevent women from having the right to terminate a pregnancy by means of various means?

We don't know where the discussion on abortion will go after the hearing, but it doesn't change, let's not give up fighting for women's physical rights, we don't give up caring for every pain that has been missed by society.
