Pro-life group gets space next to abortion clinic in Dobbs case after move to New Mexico

The Mississippi abortion clinic at the center of the Supreme Court’s recent abortion ruling is moving to New Mexico, and a pro-life effort is moving with it.

Clinic building owner Diane Derzis said she has shut down Jackson’s Women’s Health Organization, the lead plaintiff in the Dobbs v. Jackson case, and plans to reopen in Las Cruces, New Mexico, the Associated Press reported.

The controversial Dobbs ruling in June overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision which legalized abortion across the country. As a result, abortion law will now depend on individual state laws.
