Advocates are hoping the mobile clinic model will accelerate access to abortions, especially for those in states where the procedure is outlawed.

Dozens of states have stripped away access to abortion, sending reproductive health providers scrambling. Some clinics are going mobile, hoping the flexibility of being able to relocate along the edges of states with bans or severe limits on abortion will reduce expensive and time-consuming burdens on patients forced to travel hundreds of miles for healthcare.
