OKLAHOMA CITY -- There are two licensed abortion facilities in the state, one in Tulsa and one in Norman.

A third abortion provider is under construction right now.

Julie Burkhart is opening a women's health clinic in the heart of Oklahoma City, along S.W. 44th and Blackwelder.

It will be the first new abortion facility to open in Oklahoma in four decades.

Burkhart's mission is to open women's reproductive health clinics in under-served areas.

Oklahoma City is the largest metro area in the U.S. without an abortion provider.

"What we are here to do is to help facilitate, to help that woman. If she's pregnant and wants to continue to term, we will help her with prenatal care," Burkhart said. "If she wants to give that baby up for adoption, we work with an adoption agency. If she wants to terminate that pregnancy, we're going to help her in the most compassionate way to terminate that pregnancy."

Tuesday at 10 p.m., we'll get the first look inside the new clinic and sit down with the woman behind it all.

We'll also drive a mile down the road to another facility serving pregnant women. We'll talk with them about their new neighbors, and what they are doing to help women considering abortion.
