UPDATE: Just caught this on Twitter, where hustling Chris Spencer put a link to this photo on his Ozarks Unbound Facebook page. No text required. It's grateful women thanking Dr. William Harrison, who's closing his Fayetteville clinic on account of poor health. (I originally called this an abortion clinic. It was that, alone in NWA, but it was also an ob/gyn clinic for other needs.) Chris is a one-man band in Fayetteville. Check him and his website out.
