At the only abortion clinic left in Missouri, patients have a flurry of questions: How long will the clinic remain open? What’s going to happen in court? Will I be able to get an abortion next week? https://lat.ms/2HZPKFp
Last month in Missouri, Gov. Parson signed a law banning abortions at eight weeks of pregnancy, without exceptions in the cases of rape or incest. If the law is not successfully challenged, it will go into effect in late August. 📸: Troy Swanson https://lat.ms/2HZPKFp
Dr. David Eisenberg repeats the same message to patients, over and over: I'm sorry that I don't know whether I'm able to take care of you...I'm sorry that the state is forcing me to do a pelvic exam when there's no medical reason to make you uncomfortable today. 📸: Troy Swanson
When Dr. Eisenberg feels overwhelmed, he focuses on talking to his patients: the women who struggle to make ends meet, who have two or three jobs, who already have children and are trying their best to provide them with healthy meals. 📸: Troy Swanson https://lat.ms/2HZPKFp
