1/ The CapMetro board just voted unanimously (with Cooper off dais) to approve this fall schedule. UT routes will be restored for fall semester and a few select school trips return. Otherwise, the reduced schedule adopted in September remains in effect.

The dozen or so patients in the lobby Friday morning would have to be turned away. The clinic staff would have to be the ones to tell them. Each word landed like a blow. People cried. They screamed. They begged for help. It was “complete despair.”

I spent today in a Houston abortion clinic. They had 20 patients on the schedule — and had to figure out how to turn them away. Grateful to the providers, staff and patients who trusted me to observe these vulnerable moments that will go down in history.
