The 115 AD was a new unit, having been established in early 2010 in response to a rising rate of combat pregnancies and a lack of safe access to abortions. 
The all-female unit also provided relief to local women, as well as the entourages of visiting diplomats.
It was the only deploy-able abortion facility in the US Army, although plans are underway to create more.
The unit was disbanded in 2014 due to the increasing suicide bombings by the Taliban and attacks on medical personnel.
