Routh St. Womenâ€™s Clinic
Routh St. Women’s Clinic is an abortion business located in Dallas, Texas. The business commits both surgical and medical abortions.
In late 1975 Charlotte Taft began working as an abortion counselor at the Fairmount Center abortion business in Dallas, TX. She stated that until this time she had never actually witnessed an abortion. "I was totally unprepared for what I saw. I fainted dead away, but they hired me anyway," she said. Taft worked at the Fairmount Center for nearly two years, however her vision for the abortion industry differed from her supervisor's, and they clashed. Eventually Taft was demoted and she quit. Before quitting she forged an alliance with two of Fairmount's doctors, Lea Braun and Bob Glick. They agreed to stake Taft in managing a new clinic.
Braun sought the counsel of his divorce lawyer, Scott Hudson, who became the clinic's corporate attorney and board chairman. Hudson recalls his initial lunch meeting with Charlotte and Dr. Braun. "We all agreed that the clinic ought to be an institution run by women for women. The idea wasn't that we were all going to get rich." The newly formed corporation leased space in a quaint building on Routh Street in Oak Lawn - enough to house the clinic, Hudson's law office, and Dr. Braun's private ob-gyn practice. It took nine months to plan, but in April of 1978, the Routh Street Women's Clinic opened its doors.
