The building where Jackson Women’s Health Organization, also known as “The Pink House,” once operated has been sold, confirming the clinic’s closure even if permitted to resume business by a state court.

Diane Derzis, the owner of the building, said that the furniture and equipment from the clinic have already been moved to a new abortion clinic she will open soon in Las Cruces, New Mexico, where access to abortion has been expanded.

“Our only choice was to go where we could make a difference,” said Derzis on a recent episode of Democracy Now!. “And the closest place that we found was Las Cruces.”

Derzis said that people contacted her about buying the building just minutes after the United States Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade.

While the building has been sold, Derzis doesn’t believe that will be used as a medical facility.

Jackson Women’s Health Organization stopped offering medication and performing abortions on July 6, just one day before Mississippi’s trigger law went into effect banning most abortions statewide.
