The Lovejoy Surgicenter closed its doors in January, leaving many Portlanders and others seeking abortion services without a place to go. The Lilith Clinic opened last month and aims to fill the gap left by Lovejoy. Oregon is unique in that it does not have state restrictions on abortion, but access remains an issue. Many counties do not have any abortion providers at all. Dr. Charlie Browne owns the Portland Lilith Clinic. He’s based in Seattle, and his clinic there provides abortions, as well as other reproductive health services. Browne joins us to tell us more about Lilith, his patients and how he hopes to expand his services in the future.
