As Roe’s end looms, a Memphis abortion clinic guides patients through uncertainty

As Roe’s end looms, a Memphis abortion clinic guides patients through uncertainty

Workers at Choices, an abortion clinic in Memphis, Tennessee, are preparing patients for the Supreme Court's decision on the future of Roe v. Wade.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A sign on the wall at Choices, an independent abortion clinic in Memphis, bears a single word in fluorescent orange: “Onward.” 

That remains the focus of the clinic’s workers as they treat patients in what are likely the last days of abortion being a constitutionally protected right in this country.  

On a recent Tuesday, the phlebotomist — who is in her 70s and has a penchant for telling patients that they are in good hands — showed up dutifully for her shift inside the lime and pale green building. 

An administrator breezed through a crowded lobby, stopping to greet a couple and their small child waiting to be seen at the birthing center, one of the many health services the clinic offers beyond abortion care. 

A few yards away, staff members scheduling appointments kept their voices steady as they explained that if Roe v. Wade was overturned, the callers on the other end might not be able to have their procedures, depending on how far they were in pregnancy and the date the decision lands.
