Act 577 of 2015 requires providers of medication abortions to contract with a physician with admitting privileges at a designated hospital to be available in case of emergencies. Planned Parenthood said it sent out letters to 225 physicians -- every obstetrician and gynecologist in the state -- in search of any who would be willing to contract with Planned Parenthood, but none responded positively.

Both clinics offer numerous reproductive health services, including medication-induced abortions.
