North Dakota’s only abortion clinic to be profiled in Time magazine

FARGO – North Dakota’s only abortion provider will make national news this week.

New York-based reporter Kate Pickert spent a day at the Red River Women’s Clinic here with director Tammi Kromenaker for her Jan. 14 Time magazine cover story, “What Choice?”

Using the clinic as an example, the story explores the changing landscape of the “pro-choice” – a term that’s being replaced with the broader “reproductive justice” – movement to mark the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade coming up in a couple of weeks.

    The clinic in Fargo is a blight on our State. Our state is overwhelmingly pro-life. The clinic can only survive by bringing in outsiders to run it. Prayers are said every day that it will go away. But prayers are said mostly for hearts and minds to change.

      I’m guessing the Time profile will cast the clinic and its operators as something more heroic than that.

    “reproductive justice”… how fitting. A defenseless baby gets sentenced to the death penalty under this justice system.
