Bristol Tennessee abortion center seeks donation to make move to Virginia
An online donation drive launched by an owner of a Bristol, Tennessee abortion center has collected over $80,000 to move their operations across state lines.
The GoFundMe account says the need for funds began following the leak of the potential Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision last month.
Owners of the Bristol Women’s Health Center cite in a report on the webpage that the reason for the move to Virginia would allow easier access to abortions for patients based on current laws. Tennessee is currently awaiting a Court of Appeals decision that would allow the state to enact its trigger law sooner.
A spokesperson for the facility told us abortion procedures will continue to be conducted until the trigger law goes into effect.
