CLOSED: Planned Parenthood Facility in Business for 18 Years Shuts DownBy Susan Michelle-Hanson
Live Action News - December 27, 2017
Iowa’s third largest metropolitan area, the Quad Cities area, is about to see its abortion facility, Planned Parenthood in Bettendorf, close its doors, after 18 years of operation. Planned Parenthood of the Heartland blamed the closure on the loss of state funding, the result of former Gov. Terry Branstad’s signing of a law that prohibits family planning facilities committing abortions from receiving state funding. Thus, on Friday, the Bettendorf Planned Parenthood facility will close.
Planned Parenthood of the Heartland President and CEO Suzanna de Baca said today:
It is absurd that politicians have forced women to travel hours out of their way in order to access basic health care. They attempted to feed Iowans this lie that there are plenty of other places to go for the same care — but women know the truth.
This statement would only be true if abortion were actually “basic health care.” (And Planned Parenthood knows abortion isn’t like other health care, because according to a former Planned Parenthood manager, they place what are, in essence, grief journals, in their recovery rooms for women to write in after their abortions.)
