A handful of abortion clinics in Texas have closed in the weeks after the state legislature passed a controversial bill that restricts abortions.

Planned Parenthood says the closures will hurt women who came to the clinics for general health care services. But anti-abortion groups say there are other doctors for those women to go to.

From the Here & Now Contributors Network, Ben Philpott of KUT takes us to one community with a recently closed clinic to find out what’s changed.
