Carolina Public Press

By Jon Elliston:

The Raleigh-based Planned Parenthood Health Systems plans to open a new clinic in Asheville this summer that will provide abortion services, Melissa Reed, the company’s vice president of public affairs, told Carolina Public Press this morning. …

Western North Carolina’s only provider of abortion services, Femcare, put its property up for sale last week. And a patient of the Asheville women’s clinic tells Carolina Public Press that she was told by a clinic staffer that it will close soon. … According to a real estate listing from a week ago, Femcare’s building, near downtown Asheville, is now for sale for $1.275 million.
