Two years ago, I visited the Planned Pregnancy Clinic in Houston, Texas, on my first day in the state.
I was greeted by two beautiful young women who were both pregnant with twins.
Both were women of color, and both were smiling and excited about having their babies.
One of them said that she had been going to Planned Parenthood for years.
The other was smiling and shaking her head.
“This is the first time I’ve had a child,” she said, “and I’m so excited to have a baby.
But I also want to know what happens to the baby.”
Both women were pregnant women who chose to terminate their pregnancies, but they said that the abortion clinics were not equipped to handle such a complicated situation.
“I think it’s not just about the abortion,” one of the women said.
“The abortionists don’t care about you.”
It is not just that women who choose to terminate pregnancies don’t get the same treatment.
It is also that, for many of them, the abortion procedure itself is traumatic, and they are often forced to deal with the consequences later.
I have known a woman who underwent a termination that left her with post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and depression, but the abortion itself, for all the reasons I have described above, was traumatic.
A pregnancy termination can be traumatic for a woman to endure and not be able to stop.
And even though some abortion clinics are equipped to perform abortions that can be performed safely, the overwhelming majority of abortion clinics do not offer abortion counseling or abortion referrals.
As a result, many women are left in a desperate situation.
In the Houston area, there are nearly two dozen abortion clinics, and only two of them have access to counseling and abortion referrals in their counseling areas.
In addition to the counseling and referral, many clinics do offer some form of free pregnancy testing and counseling.
But these services are often limited to the women who come in for the abortion, not the women themselves.
Some clinics also do not provide abortions on demand.
I visited two of these clinics and asked about the availability of the abortion services.
They were in Houston and the surrounding area, and neither clinic was equipped to offer abortion referrals or counseling.
After I asked, one of them told me that the clinic had been closed for a few weeks and was in the process of being rebuilt.
The next day, I found a letter that was signed by the clinic’s CEO, the vice president of marketing and operations, and two other executives.
The letter said that Planned Parenthood “will be making every effort to ensure that you have access” to counseling, testing, and referral services.
However, that’s not how things went down in the clinic I visited.
It turns out that the only Planned Parenthood in Houston that is equipped to provide abortion services is in Dallas, which is located about 40 miles away from Houston.
The clinic that was operating in the area was closed for two weeks in January.
The people who run the clinic told me later that they had a “medical emergency,” and they had to shut down the clinic because of the emergency.
When I visited them, I learned that the staff members had not been able to provide referrals or abortion counseling to anyone in the neighborhood because the clinic is closed.
When they returned to the clinic the next day with the appointment to schedule an appointment, they were told that the facility had been shut down and the clinic was no longer available to accept appointments.
I reached out to the Planned Clinic in Dallas through a Facebook message, but I was not able to get in touch with them.
I also contacted Planned Parenthood of Greater Houston, which was also in the Houston metropolitan area.
Planned Parenthood told me they had no comment and that they do not comment on the health of their affiliates.
One thing is for sure: There is no way to determine whether or not Planned Parenthood’s abortion services are adequate or if they are the exception to the rule.
And in the case of Houston, I am convinced that the vast majority of Planned Parenthood affiliates are not adequately equipped to serve women in need.
There is a huge disparity between what Planned Parenthood is able to offer and what it can do to provide care.
In many cases, it is simply not feasible to offer the same services to all women who request an abortion.
One Houston-area abortion provider told me he has already been shut out of many Planned Parenthood clinics in his area.
The person said that they are “just not equipped” to serve all women in the region.
I spoke with other women I have spoken with who also told me of similar experiences.
One woman told me about a woman she met who was in her late 30s and had been on birth control for a year and a half.
The woman had a difficult pregnancy, and her doctor had prescribed a progestin pill to help her control her bleeding.
The abortionist who treated her was an “experienced” physician, but when she asked him about the pills, he refused to prescribe them.
He said that he didn
