    A Planned Parenthood facility in Iowa has officially shut down after it announced its closure earlier this year. The location in Dubuque, which offered medication abortions only, reported a drop in clientele as reason for closure. The Dubuque location was in operation for eight years, and it is among almost a dozen satellite Planned Parenthood facilities to shutter in recent years. In 2014, Planned Parenthood closed facilities in Red Oak and Creston; and over the years, the abortion giant shut down similar facilities in Ankeny, Fort Dodge, Fort Madison, Knoxville, Newton, Mount Pleasant Storm Lake, Spencer and Washington.

    The name Steven Chase Brigham is notorious on both sides of the abortion movement. The late-term abortionist lost his license to practice in five states, faced criminal charges for killing late-term babies, employed a sex offender and more. Despite his disgraceful reputation, Brigham still runs more than a dozen abortion facilities in three East Coast states: Maryland, New Jersey and Virginia, according to his business website. This month, one of his Virginia abortion clinics was shut down, at least temporarily. The Washington Post reports state investigators found filthy, dangerous conditions that compromised patient safety inside Brigham’s Fairfax abortion clinic during...

    From Lauren Bianchi, of the pro-choice group FURIE: “I don’t know exactly when escorting started but it was a response to an awful wave of terrorism, when antiabortion protesters would chain themselves to the doors to keep people from getting in. Clinics are businesses. They don’t want people standing around outside. [Activists] thought they should be allowed to have clinic-defense protests. When I was an escort, I was told that patients can’t tell the difference [between protesting factions].” Aimee Levitt “Chicago feminist group FURIE takes on antiabortion marchers this Sunday” Chicago Reader FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 2016

    It isn’t difficult to guess the reasons why a late-term abortion clinic in New Jersey didn’t want pregnant employees to be working there. It could be bad for its $1.8 million-a-year business. The Pilgrim Medical Center, a Montclair abortion clinic that advertises same-day, late-term abortions, recently lost a discrimination lawsuit filed by three former employees who said they were fired after becoming pregnant, according to the Wall Street Journal. Now, the abortion facility is filing for bankruptcy. Nicholas Campanella, the abortionist who owns the facility, has a reputation among his staff for “not lik[ing] pregnant employees,” according to the lawsuit....

    When was the last time you talked to a woman who had suffered, with regret, through the abortion process? As you listened to her tell her story, what did you learn? Did you hear her regret, frustration, embarrassment, and confusion? Any time abortion becomes part of the public debate, many people run to their corner with their predetermined position. Their mind is made up, and they have their position on the issue. I, like many women, return to one simple question that has served as a trustworthy guide over the years: “Who is being harmed?” Learning about harm comes from...

    Working in the prolife movement can be overwhelming and seem daunting at times. After all, 3,000 babies are being aborted each day. However, there is progress being made every day. The abortion rate is declining, abortion clinics are closing, and abortion providers are quitting. According to a new report from Bloomberg Business, 162 abortion providers have stopped offering abortions since 2011 while only 21 new clinics have opened. Michigan led this with one of the largest drops in abortion providers. Since 2011 15 out of the state’s 34 surgical abortion clinics have closed. This week will be the last week...

    Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments for Whole Women’s Health vs. Hellerstedt. The case revolves around whether or not ambulatory surgical center regulations for abortion centers and hospital admitting privileges for abortionists creates an undue burden. The claim has been made that over 20 Texas abortion facilities closed, directly because of H.B. 2, and abortion activists have taken up the phrase “Stop the Sham.” It’s because of pro-lifers and their anti-abortion laws that abortion centers are closing, they say. But if they want to know the real reason so many are closing, they’ll need to look in their own backyard....

The last day of operation will be Jan. 31.

The ACA requires insurances plan to provide women with an annual physical and contraceptives without a deductible or co-pay. That means women who formerly were reliant on Planned Parenthood for services and...

    A photo of the sign at the Planned Parenthood abortion business Abby Johnson used to manage is making the round of the Internet. The abortion giant closed the Bryan-College Station, Texas abortion clinic and no one is more happy about the news than Abby herself — who tweeted and Facebooked the picture. Johnson said: “The Planned Parenthood sign at my former clinic has come down!! It is really closed. I don’t think it has become real for me yet. No more women will walk into that facility to be harmed again. No more children will die inside those walls.” The...

    The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services announced Wednesday that it has suspended the license of Femcare, an abortion clinic in Asheville, for two dozen serious health and safety violations discovered during a routine inspection on July 18 and 19th. This action comes just two days after Gov. Pat McCrory signed a law that will require abortion clinics to meet the standards of an outpatient surgery center. Ironically, it was thought that Femcare would be the only North Carolina abortion clinic to meet safety standards under the new law, but it seems it that thinking was grossly...

    New rules in Ohio will leave Toledo without a provider Ohio women have fewer places to go for an abortion, and access is expected to become more limited with newly passed state regulations that reduce access to the procedure. Two of Ohio’s 13 licensed abortion clinics have closed in recent months, and a third is expected to shut down in the coming weeks. More closings are possible. “They’ve opened up a new front in the war on women’s health,” Kellie Copeland, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio, said of abortion opponents. “They can use this tool, and their influence ......

    BRYAN, TX, July 18, 2013 ( - On the same day as Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed the state's new late-term abortion ban into law, Planned Parenthood has announced that they are closing three more clinics in the state, one of which performs abortions. In a press release, Planned Parenthood blamed the closures on funding cuts that Republican lawmakers passed in 2011. Those funding cuts have already led to the closure of numerous Planned Parenthood clinics across the state. However, one of the three clinics, the Bryan clinic, is also subject to the requirements of the new abortion law signed...

    Abortion rights advocates have long maintained that abortion clinics are safe and that their procedures are no more invasive or dangerous than dental surgery or colonoscopies. Virginia recently passed regulations requiring abortion clinics to have wider hallways and doorways, expanded parking and entrance awnings. Supporters said the ­changes ensure the safety of women undergoing abortions. Opponents said the measure was a veiled attempt to shutter them. “NOVA Women’s Healthcare provided medical services to thousands of women,” Yarmosky said. “It was the largest abortion provider, but thousands of women also relied on them for birth control and other health care, and...

    The Fairfax City council voted Tuesday night to create a new term in its zoning law, “medical care facility,” delete the term “clinic” from the current definition of a doctor’s office, and require all medical care facilities to obtain a special use permit at a cost of $4,800, along with a detailed approval process and a final vote by the city council. Pro-choice activists said the move was aimed at keeping abortion clinics out of Fairfax City, including an existing clinic in the city which was trying to relocate to meet Virginia’s new hospital-style zoning standards for abortion clinics. Clinics...

Sharfstein, Maryland’s health secretary, announced the suspensions May 24 in a letter to Maryland Sen. Thomas McLain Middleton (D-Charles County), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and Del.
