Planned Parenthood to close four Iowa clinics after cuts

Mansanares stressed that Planned Parenthood would maintain a presence in the state via the Wyoming Abortion Fund, a network of abortion providers, and by continuing to offer "sexual education resources".

Planned Parenthood of the Heartland said it planned to close four clinics across Iowa because of the recent budget signed into law by Gov.

The abortion restrictions were challenged by Planned Parenthood Great Plains, which operates women's health clinics in Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas and Oklahoma, and Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri.

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

The clinic served 488 patients a year ago, providing birth control, abortions, physical exams and other services. Although Wyoming is now the first state to have no PP facilities, abortions can still be obtained through some local health centers.

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 ACLU of IN stands IN strong defense of a woman's right to make decisions about her health, including her reproductive health and future".

But, now because Iowa has violated Medicaid rules by blocking Planned Parenthood, the state will lose the entire $3m. "There are 2,400 different doctors, nurses and clinics in every corner of the state that can provide family-planning services". "What is happening in Iowa is what we could see across the country if Congress passes this risky law to defund Planned Parenthood", said Dr. Raegan McDonald-Mosley, chief medical officer at Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Many mentioned patient numbers and finances as reasons.

"We have already provided written information to the state that they requested back in the late summer, early fall, when we did the initial inspections", McQuade said.

According to Phillips, the Wyoming Planned Parenthood Clinic did not receive state funding and was mostly supported through donations and grants. The four clinics served 14,676 patients in the last three years, she said, including many rural and poor women. "Abortion is a direct assault on human life and dignity, and abortion clinics do not provide a wide continuum of medical care". "If we care about taking care of people, we would fund Planned Parenthood and keep these types of services available", he said after a meeting at the United Food and Commercial Workers union hall on West Central Park Avenue.

"We knew there would be an impact certainly on Planned Parenthood's, so we've been trying to prepare for that", said Tom Bowman, CEO Community Health Care.
