Where there's Choice, there's Hope.

February 12, 2019. Hope Clinic Executive Director, Erin King, MD, testified in Jefferson City, Missouri about proposed dangerous and restrictive Missouri abortion laws. Although the Hope Clinic is located in Illinois, over half of the patients see at Hope are Missouri residents. Missouri patients do not need to face even more restrictions and obstacles to access abortion care than they already do. Dr. King also sees patients in St Louis, Missouri in her general Ob/Gyn practice. She spoke from her experience as a gynecologist providing reproductive healthcare on both sides of the river in two states that see health care access for women very differently.
