Michael Rothrock

Michael Rothrock is the owner of Hope Medical Group for Women, one of three abortion providers remaining in the state of Louisiana. For over a decade, Michael has worked with the Center for Reproductive Rights to defend access to abortion in Louisiana and keep the doors open at Hope.

The clinic was founded by Michael’s mother 40 years ago to offer abortion services in an area with no providers. Today, Hope provides comprehensive reproductive healthcare to people from Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, and Oklahoma.

In partnership with the Center, Hope Medical Group has taken on numerous legal battles to protect abortion care from the state’s attempts to eliminate access through restrictions, bans, and medically unnecessary regulations.
