    women in El Paso will have to travel almost 600 miles (8-1/2 hours by car) to the nearest facility in Austin to obtain abortion services.  Women in Laredo will have a 3-1/2 trip to Austin.  It will take women in McAllen, 315 miles away, over 5 hours to make it to the nearest clinic in Austin - or 5-1/2 hours (over 350 miles) to Houston.
