Legislative cuts force closures at Planned Parenthood in Burlington, Keokuk

Legislative cuts force closures at Planned Parenthood in Burlington, Keokuk

The state's challenge Thursday to the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals came a day after U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs refused to delay enforcing the preliminary injunction he issued last month in favor of Planned Parenthood affiliates with Missouri health centers.

The only Planned Parenthood Clinic in the state of Wyoming will close its doors in July, according to a regional representative on Friday.

The clinics set for closing are located in Sioux City in northwest Iowa, Bettendorf in eastern Iowa, and Burlington and Keokuk in the southeast corner of the state.

A spokesman couldn't be immediately reached for comment.

The fact that Casper has other alternatives for women to receive "comprehensive reproductive health care" was part of the decision to close that facility, Mansanares said.

This story will be updated.

As of 2017, there were an estimated 788 abortion mills in the United States.

The new state family planning program will cost the state about $3 million; the previous setup with the federal government allowed Iowa to pay about $300,000 through a 90 percent to 10 percent match.

You can say what you want about Planned Parenthood and their false claims to provide life-saving health care to women.

"In a year when there are significant budget shortfalls in the state of Iowa, it doesn't make any sense financially". In the case of Keokuk, women in that community will have to drive almost an hour to find the closest provider of safety-net family planning services, they said.

The measure is the latest effort by Republicans nationally to halt the flow of public money to Planned Parenthood, a 100-year-old nonprofit that provides birth control, testing for sexually transmitted diseases, cancer screenings and other services at hundreds of clinics in almost every state.

Research by the Guttmacher Institute shows that Texas's family planning program in 2013 served less than one-quarter of the women it helped in 2011.

Starting in 2011, Texas took steps to bar abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood from participating in a program aimed at giving low-income women family planning services.

Pro-life organization Live Action has produced a video that utilizes Planned Parenthood's annual reports to show the actual decline in its healthcare services, while abortions have increased. He said in an email the governor's office was proud of the Legislature's move. "Abortion is a direct assault on human life and dignity, and abortion clinics do not provide a wide continuum of medical care".

A spokesperson from the organization says defunding at the state level has forced the closures, leaving more than 14,000 Iowans without access to certain services.
