Planned Parenthood to close its only Wyoming clinic this summer

Planned Parenthood to close its only Wyoming clinic this summer

Planned Parenthood is also closing four clinics in Iowa, leaving only eight total in the state. But antiabortion activists say taxpayer money should not support Planned Parenthood's non-abortion work because the organization performs hundreds of thousands of abortions every year and is among the most vocal proponents of abortion rights.

A spokesman couldn't be immediately reached for comment.

SIOUX CITY | Planned Parenthood of the Heartland will close its Sioux City clinic at the end of June, affecting more than 5,000 people in the region, the women's health provider said Thursday.

This story will be updated. "This is a victory for our state, and Iowans for Life is committed to continue working to see all abortion clinics closed in Iowa".

Taylor Roberson of West Burlington said care received at the Burlington Planned Parenthood clinic made it possible for her to pursue personal and professional goals after a decade of dealing with undiagnosed abdominal pain.

"The loss of funding from the Iowa Family Planning Waiver itself is close to $2 million", Allen said.

Past year too, Sunrisers completed a double on the Suresh Raina-led team with a couple of easy wins in the league stages. The duo added an unbeaten 133-run stand which came from just 91 deliveries and somewhat incredibly included zero sixes.

Now, there are approximately five states that have one abortion mill left: Kentucky, Mississippi, South Dakota, North Dakota and Missouri.

Before Iowa, Texas became the first state to walk away from many millions in Medicaid funding for the objective of defunding Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood said the reason is the state's decision to change its family planning program, which had been funded by Medicaid.

Planned Parenthood argued in their lawsuit that minors will be deterred from this because the court will inform the parents of the proceedings if their petition is denied.

The state is asking the Trump administration for nearly half a billion dollars that it would have received half a decade ago if it had acknowledged Planned Parenthood. Without this vital resource for reproductive health, all Americans who need safety-net medical services would suffer-patients who get care from Planned Parenthood, yes, but also those who rely on FQHCs, where quality of care would crumble under a wave of patients with nowhere else to go. Texas, the first state to exclude Planned Parenthood, soon saw a spike in the rate of childbirth covered by Medicaid and a decrease in low-income women's ability to find contraception. Two suits filed previous year challenged a ban on abortions because of fetal genetic abnormalities and a mandate that forces women to undergo an ultrasound at least 18 hours before having an abortion.
