Planned Parenthood to close 4 Iowa clinics after funding cut

Planned Parenthood to close 4 Iowa clinics after funding cut”

The Wyoming clinic will close July 21.

But, now because Iowa has violated Medicaid rules by blocking Planned Parenthood, the state will lose the entire $3m.

The Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives included such a defunding measure as part of the American Health Care Act, the bill aimed at replacing Obamacare. "Funding is one thing that we look at, but we also look at whether our patients will receive excellent care at another provider, or most importantly, come see us in any of our health centers throughout the state".

The Casper clinic has been staffed by a part-time manager and a traveling nurse who visits from northern Colorado.

More than 80 family planning centers also closed in Texas, a third of which were Planned Parenthood affiliates. "We will do everything we can to continue to care for as many patients as we can".

The health centers slated for closing are in Sioux City, Bettendorf, Burlington and Keokuk.

"It was a small operation, but served quite a few patients", said Phillips.

The new program excludes any organization that provides abortions to women, including Planned Parenthood.

Clinics in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho and Farmington are likely to close in September. "This is necessary for us to position PPRM for long-term sustainability in the communities we serve".

The ACLU of IN will again take IN to court over an abortion law - this time one requiring parental consent for minors seeking the procedure.

While they seem benign, these requirements do nothing to ensure that abortion, which is already 14 times safer than childbirth, is any safer for patients and instead create often insurmountable obstacles to providers.

Planned Parenthood now operates 12 centers in Iowa.

When interviewed by the Casper Star-Tribune, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains Chief Experience Officer Adrienne Mansanares suggested that financial difficulties impacted the Wyoming clinic, leading to its close.

The ACLU of Indiana is two-for-two in recent legal battles against the Indiana General Assembly's attempt to pass new abortion restrictions.

"Their abortion-centered business model isn't just morally wrong, it's a failure", she said. The state is "giving up millions of dollars in federal funding" that pays for family planning services like birth control, cancer screenings, breast exams, STD tests and treatment, and more, according to Planned Parenthood of the Heartland communications director Susan Allen.

"Over the last six years, Planned Parenthood's annual clientele has dropped half a million clients", Live Action reports in the video. One victim's widow, who was wounded in the attack, filed a lawsuit charging that the clinic should have had better security given the history of attacks on clinics.
