CHOICES WOMEN’S CLINIC The new location for Choices Women’s Clinic is 1851 W Colonial Dr. It is within 1 mile of Planned Parenthood, and within 3 miles of two other abortion clinics. The new building is over 5,800 square feet, which will allow for expanded medical space, counseling rooms, baby boutique, and additional services. There is the need for some remodeling and sprucing up in the new building. A group from Westwood is planning to work at the new facility on Friday, October 7th, 9 am – 1 pm. Indicate on your Communication Card if you want to join us.
