Planned Parenthood closing Bettendorf facility

Texas asks Feds to reinstate funding it lost when it snubbed Planned Parenthood

The health centers slated for closing are in Sioux City, Bettendorf, Burlington and Keokuk. While Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the USA, the Casper clinic's services include abortion referrals, not abortions themselves.

Phillips said the regional office will direct its support to the Wyoming Abortion Fund, which helps provide money to women who can't afford the procedure or the travel associated with the appointment.

Sachs dismissed the state's insistence that it is protecting abortion patients' health in the litigation, writing that "the converse is demonstrably true". They set up a task force that ultimately determined that without Medicaid funds, four of Planned Parenthood's 12 Iowan clinics would be unable to operate.

The health centers in Sioux City, Burlington, And Keokuk will close June 30. Janet Petersen, D-Des Moines.

Four Planned Parenthood clinics will close in Iowa. Texas similarly "defunded" the group in the state, resulting in almost 30,000 fewer women receiving birth control and other care the organization provides.

"This is a challenging decision", said Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains official Adrienne Mansanares. Its not about patient facts", she said. "If I wouldn't have found a doctor to treat me, I certainly wouldn't have been able to pick up my life and move to New York City to start my career".

That deal boosted defense spending while ignoring the White House's proposed $18 billion in cuts for the environment, health care and other domestic needs.

Planned Parenthood has often been targeted by conservatives because it offers abortion and birth control for women among its countless, life-saving services.

The closures come after the state's Republican legislators worked to redirect Medicaid family planning dollars away from abortion providers starting July 1. De Baca called the new policy an "extremist" attack that will harm "an untold number of Iowans".

"Our budget will be smaller next year as a result of the loss of revenue", de Baca said. "Our first thought on every step was how it will impact our patients".

The closures take effect on June 30. Earlier this month, Branstad signed a bill not only banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy-without exceptions for rape, incest, or fatal fetal abnormalities-but making a 72-hour waiting period mandatory before an abortion.

Erin Houchin, R-Salem, said the bill was not about women seeking abortions, but was rather meant to allow parents to be involved the the minor's health care decision, which she said can have a "lasting psychological impact".

"With the closure of four more unsafe webcam abortion locations, we are pleased to see Iowa rapidly returning to a state where women and their unborn children are safe from the shrinking abortion giant", Bowen concluded.
