The Tasmanian Government is under pressure to find a new surgical abortion service, after the closure of the state's only clinic.
Dr Paul Hyland had been the state's primary surgical abortion provider for 17 years, but said rising costs and a drop in demand had meant he had closed the service.
He said the number of surgical abortions, a procedure done after nine weeks, had declined.
