As soon as next year, a health clinic that aims to steer women away from abortion could open next door to the new Planned Parenthood office on South Claiborne Avenue in New Orleans, but its location is likely not nearly as controversial as one of its services.
The Woman’s New Life Center, which already has offices in Metairie and Baton Rouge, plans to bring so-called “abortion reversal” to New Orleans. It says the treatment can stop an abortion if administered soon after a woman takes the first of two chemical abortion pills.
”We work with the doctors that are trained in that protocol,” said Angela Thomas, the clinic’s CEO. “It’s really a beautiful program.”
