DALLAS – The North Park Medical Group is the first Dallas abortion clinic to close following the passing of House Bill 2.
That bill, put into effect in November, tightened the restriction on abortion clinics across the state.
Friday, the Department of State Health Services confirmed to News 8 the medical group verbally notified the state they will no longer provide services. A source close to the clinic tells News 8 they were unable to secure hospital admitting privileges, one of the requirements of the new state law. Their license is still valid, but the property is locked up.
