Durham Clinic That Provides Abortions Closes For Good

Protesters take a stand for abortion and women's rights at a Moral Mondays protest.

The Department of Health and Human Services found health code violations this summer at two North Carolina clinics that provide abortions. Now, one of them has closed for good, while the other has re-opened.

Durham’s Baker Clinic for Women has voluntarily surrendered its license after being shuttered by the DHHS in July for a quality control on blood banking. After their closure, clinic owner Dr. John Baker vowed to fix the issue and reopen the facility. The license surrender became effective last week.

The other clinic cited for a violation this summer, Asheville surgical center FEMCARE, re-opened last week after fixing the problems cited by the DHHS.  It’s the only abortion-providing clinic in North Carolina that is also a surgical center.
