"Anon Jim" left a comment with a link to this short article about a volunteer escort's last shift at the abortion place, "Femkill". It appeared in the Asheville Blade on June 15.
It begins with an introduction by the publisher:
At the end of this month FemCare, currently the last clinic
in the Asheville
area providing abortion services, will close. Last year, the clinic was controversially
shut down for nearly a month by NC inspectors during a fight about new
state legislation sharply restricting access to abortion. For almost a decade,
local activist, author and Pagan clergy member Byron Ballard worked as a
volunteer escort, accompanying women in and out of the clinic to ensure their
safety. Here she tells the story of her last shift. -DF
