Some clinics halting abortions while bracing for Roe’s fall

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Abortion providers are bracing for the possible reversal of the Roe v. Wade decision on abortion by the U.S. Supreme Court.

In South Dakota, the state’s only abortion clinic says it has “paused” scheduling abortions beyond the end of the month.

In Wisconsin, Planned Parenthood isn’t scheduling appointments beyond June 25.

Some abortion providers are transitioning staff to help patients travel to other states and creating networks of clinics that will span across regions of the country.
