about southwestern womens options

Dr. Curtis Boyd has been providing abortion services in New Mexico since abortion was legalized in 1972 and founded Southwestern Women’s Options in 1985 with Dr. Glenna Halvorson-Boyd, PhD, RN. Both are known nationally and internationally for providing the highest quality pregnancy termination services and for their dedication to reproductive freedom of choice.

Our clinic is nationally recognized for our outstanding work and patient-centered care. Southwestern Women’s Options has pioneered individual counseling services to best support our patients with their decision. We practice specialized pain control techniques and dilation and evacuation (D&E) technology for safer and more comfortable second trimester abortion procedures.

Beyond safe and high-quality abortion services and follow-up care, we are committed to helping our patients obtain other reproductive services such as contraceptive management and diagnosis and management of pregnancy loss.

Southwestern Women’s Center

Formerly named the Fairmount Center, Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center (SWSC) was founded in 1973 by Dr. Curtis Boyd.  It was the first facility in Texas to provide high-quality, low-cost outpatient abortion care.  Since its inception, SWSC has always fought to maintain abortion access for pregnant Texans.

After the United States Supreme Court issued their decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization on June 24, 2022, clinics in Texas and many surrounding states have been forced to stop providing abortion services.  SWSC did remain open for a time and was committed to providing a safe space for pregnant persons seeking abortion to learn about their legal abortion options out-of-state, receive follow-up care, and obtain other reproductive services such as contraceptive management and diagnosis and management of pregnancy loss.

Unfortunately, Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center has permanently ceased operations due to the legal abortion restrictions in Texas. Our last day of patient care was March 2, 2023.
