Nashville’s only remaining abortion provider has suspended its abortion services indefinitely because it could not find a physician to perform the abortions.
The Nashville office of Planned Parenthood of Tennessee and North Mississippi, the largest provider of abortions in the state, is now referring clients to clinics in Knoxville and Memphis.
The decision to stop offering abortion services has resulted in Tennessee Right to Life receiving an increase in calls from desperate pregnant women wanting abortions, giving the pro-life group an opportunity to introduce these women to life-affirming pregnancy care options.
In August, the Women’s Center abortion facility in Nashville also closed after almost three decades of aborting unborn babies.
Tennessee now has six abortion providers, down from 16 in 2000.
