Tara at Think Progress: "Mississippi's only remaining abortion clinic, the Jackson Women's Health Organization, is struggling to stay open as it is faced with unnecessary, complicated restrictions imposed by the state's Republican lawmakers. But its owners are staying positive—and they hope to send that positive message to the rest of the Jackson community, now that the clinic building has gotten a new, bright pink facelift... But since the Jackson clinic hasn't been able to comply with the restrictive regulations—the new rules require the clinic's doctors to secure hospital admitting privileges, but all seven hospitals in the surrounding area have so far denied them—it may be in trouble soon."

In the meantime, the clinic will remain defiantly pink. Clinic Owner Diane Derzis: "It says: We're right here, and we're not going anywhere."
