Planned Parenthood Closing Numerous Facilities Due to Financial Problems

By Dr Susan Berry, 5-19-17, at Breitbart:

Despite increases in taxpayer funding and donations from celebrities, Planned Parenthood facilities are closing rapidly throughout the country due to financial problems.

Three of the six Planned Parenthood affiliates in New Mexico are slated to close by the end of September. The abortion vendor’s Casper, Wyoming, location will also close on July 21, making Wyoming and North Dakota the first two states in the nation without Planned Parenthood clinics.

Planned Parenthood’s facilities in Parker and Longmont, Colorado, are also scheduled to close, as are four more of its Iowa clinics. Planned Parenthood and its president, Cecile Richards, blame Iowa’s closures on a new state law that redirects taxpayer funding to other community healthcare centers. Since 2010, however, 16 facilities in Iowa have closed.

Adrienne Mansanares, an official at Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM), admitted to the Star-Tribune that there are other places for women to receive comprehensive reproductive health care.

“Our No. 1 priority and concern is to ensure that we have coordination of care for our patients,” Mansanares said. “We’ll be working really closely with our patients to make sure we get them connected to another provider.”

Whitney Phillips, spokesperson for PPRM, said the clinic closures in her area were due to “a shifting health care landscape nationally and in the states we serve,” and to allow the organization to “maintain a fiscally solvent operation.”

“After careful and extensive evaluation, PPRM is making some difficult but necessary organizational changes to ensure that we can continue to meet our patients’ needs in both the short and long term,” Phillips said. “This is necessary for us to position PPRM for long-term sustainability in the communities we serve.”

“Planned Parenthood’s enterprise is crumbling, even while they are still raking in over half a billion dollars a year from taxpayers,” said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Their abortion-centered business model isn’t just morally wrong, it’s a failure. In a market where there are so many better options, women don’t need to get their health care from Planned Parenthood.”

Dannenfelser points to Planned Parenthood’s own annual reports, which show a dramatic drop in non-abortion services, including cancer screenings, STD testing, and even contraceptive services – the last of which the organization often touts as one of its primary areas of service.

“Their latest annual report is five months overdue,” Dannenfelser continues. “We urge Congress to redirect tax dollars to community health centers that outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities by an average of 20 to one nationally.”

Planned Parenthood receives approximately $450 million annually from the federal government as part of their $1.3 billion annual budget. Evidently they spent too much money trying to get their failed candidate of choice elected last year. Gee, that’s too bad, but maybe now some of those babies will get to live instead of being aborted for lucrative parts.

Keep the closures coming – it couldn’t be happening to a more deserving bunch.

  1. Fact: Abortion mill manager Cecile Richards is not sincerely concerned about infant mortality.

    Fact: If PP is forced to closed its centers in Iowa, that’s NOT the fault of the governor of Iowa withholding taxpayer money. It’s the fault of PP clients who won’t pay for their own services.

    Fact: PP is a traitorous organization that uses the tax dollars of American citizens to provide services for non-U.S. citizens.

    Fact: Cecile Richards is overpaid.

  2. Cecil Richards (she kinda looks like a cross dresser in the pic) mismanaged her funding. When you put your wad on a losing horse, you LOSE!

    Maybe this is part of God’s plan. Maybe he’s giving us another chance…

    Ever hear of Israel and Molech?

  3. At long last, the purveyor of fetal tissue by the pound is losing “business.” I think that was the key – when they no longer could supply “parts” to their end-users, one of their primary sources of income dried up. Theirs was a truly repugnant business model. Bad enough they existed to kill babies in the womb, but when the public learned that they sold the “parts,” that was the final straw.

    • Like most liberals, they refuse to accept responsibility for their failures, and blame the states for it instead. My guess is that most states won’t care about being blamed, so long as they’re gone.

    • My sentiments too, bescher.

      When PP starts the whining (and they will) about women being unable to get the care they need, I hope people remember that there are plenty of facilities out there when women can get all the same services, except abortion. In fact there are more state and federally-run facilities than there are PP facilities.
