Wellspring Health Access Clinic Open in Wyoming

Donation protected
In the early hours of May 25, 2022, less than a month before the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, an antiabortion arsonist set fire to the Wellspring Health Access clinic in Casper, Wyoming, a new abortion clinic set to open there. The fire destroyed 90% of the clinic, rendering the operating room, recovery room, the waiting room, and more completely inoperable. Because of that attack, Wellspring has never been able to see a single abortion patient.

Wyoming is a large geographic state, and the state’s only operational abortion clinic is nearly 300 miles away from Casper. A trigger law that would ban abortion in the state, is being challenged by Wellspring, and they've had success. Julie Burkhart, the president and founder of Wellspring, has vowed to rebuild the clinic and fight the state’s trigger law in court so that abortion care can remain legal in Wyoming.

“We’re still working with our contractors and insurance adjuster to determine the full extent and cost of the damages. At this point, we’re anticipating that the clinic opening will be delayed by around six months. Despite these setbacks, we are undeterred in our mission to give the people of Casper access to comprehensive reproductive health care, including abortion care,” she told CNN in early June.

To make that happen, she needs help. Help Wellspring Health Access clinic cover the significant renovation costs so that they can rebuild and open their doors to patients while Burkhart and others fight Wyoming’s trigger law to keep abortion legal in the state for as long as possible. It’s a drop in the bucket in terms of the larger struggle, but it would mean that Wellspring can finally provide quality abortion care to the patients who need it.

Wyomingites deserve to have access to safe, legal abortion care in their own state, and we can help make it happen. No amount is too small to make a difference!
