Last week, the ACLU caught up with physician Yashica Robinson, an abortion provider from Alabama and recipient of the 2017 George Tiller, M.D. Award from Physicians for Reproductive Health.

Dr. Robinson is board-certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and is a fellow of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. She is the owner and founder of Alabama Women’s Wellness Center and provides reproductive care at Alabama Women’s Center. Dr. Robinson is one of the only abortion providers in the state of Alabama. The ACLU represents her and the Alabama Women’s Wellness Center in their ongoing legal challenge to multiple restrictions aimed at making it difficult or impossible for a woman to access an abortion in Alabama.

We talked about what motivates her to provide abortion care, the challenges she’s faced, and the women who inspire her.
