Citing tough economic times and a lack of funding, Planned Parenthood of Northeast and Mid-Penn closed its Hazleton office Friday and will now look to pool resources with its larger office in Wilkes-Barre.
...Planned Parenthood served women in the Hazleton community for nearly 30 years, offering numerous services including Pap smears, breast exams, pregnancy tests, STD tests, birth control and emergency contraception.
"The decision to close is a difficult one, and one that we regret having to make," President and CEO Kim Custer said in a press release. "As a result of inadequate funding for the services provided, Planned Parenthood could no longer sustain the services in this location."

I would consider helping out their community in doing volunteer work for “breast exams” between the ages of 20 to 39 years of age. Anything to help the community.
Ah thought so. Thanks.
I just wanted to thank you for putting the [city/state] reference in the title of your thread. It’s a courtesy that’s all-too-uncommon on the FR site. Not doing so is a pet peeve that gets my OCD flowing every time. THANKS!
good news, another one for your list.
Keep praying everyone! That’s what shuts these killing houses down.
Thanks for the pings!
**and a glorious day it will be.**
