From The Boston Globe:
Women’s Health Services, which has provided abortion and family planning services in Greater Boston for nearly three decades, has turned to a GoFundMe campaign to help keep its doors open.
It’s a Hail Mary move for the Brookline clinic, which will close within a few months if it doesn’t secure enough support from donors, according to the campaign. The campaign is still a good distance from its $250,000 goal, but has had an uptick in contributions after recent media attention. As of about noon Monday, the fundraiser had reached about $126,000 since it began on Dec. 2.
While a GoFundMe may seem like an unusual step for a for-profit clinic, Dr. Laurent Delli-Bovi, the clinic’s medical director and founder, said the clinic hasn’t been profitable since 2006, and in the past has relied on a variety of sources to stay afloat, like teaching or research participation.
Did no editor at The Globe — The Boston Globe?! — realize the problem here?
