San Francisco women's health clinic set to shut down

A long time women's health clinic in San Francisco is set to shut down on Wednesday because of funding problems.

Lyon Martin Health Services was founded in 1979 and serves 2,500 patients a year.

On Sunday, the clinic's board voted to close the facility, because it is $250,000 in debt.

Since then, supporters have donated more than $10,000 and a fundraiser is planned for this Sunday.

The clinic's medical director hopes that will be enough to convince the board to grant a last minute delay of Wednesday's shutdown.
