  • Planned Parenthood facility in Iowa officially shuts down

    05/04/2016 5:17:06 PM PDT · by Morgana · 17 replies ^ | May 3 2016 | Becky Yeh
    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. Dubuque County...

    An abortion clinic in Louisiana is stopping abortions because it can't comply with a pro-life law protecting women's health that requires abortion practitioners to have admitting privileges at a local hospital in case women are seriously injured in a botched abortion. As LifeNews reported, a federal appeals court has overturned a block a federal judge put in place to stop a new law from taking effect that may close three of the four abortion clinics operating in the Bayou State. Earlier this month, a Louisiana judge sided with abortion advocates and ruled against a state law that would ensure abortion...
  • CLOSED: Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Florida shuts down

    A Planned Parenthood abortion facility, located on Havendale Blvd in Winter Haven, Florida, has closed its doors as of February 1, 2016. Situated inside Spring Lake Square, the Planned Parenthood sat among restaurants, a movie theater, and businesses that fill the earth-tone-colored suburban strip mall. Sidewalk Advocates for Life, which reported the closure, shared that this is the first abortion facility in the group’s short 22-month-history to shut down. The group encouraged its counselors to continue dedicating their time to counseling abortion-minded women, and to advocate on the sidewalks for the preborn. Sidewalk Advocates for Life’s Winter Haven, Florida, program...

    It was for years the focus of the abortion wars in the South. The non-descript red brick building in Birmingham once housed the most notorious abortion business in Alabama. In a final post script to decades of pro-life efforts, it was razed to the ground the weekend by new owners who have other – better – plans for the property. Operated by the “Abortion Queen” Diane Derzis, New Woman All Women was a poorly-maintained abortion facility that became well known for shoddy practices and deceptive tactics that kept it operating well beyond its legal ability to do so. A coalition...

  • 42nd Abortion Clinic Closed This Year Due to Filthy, Unsafe Conditions

    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...

The United States was receiving a wakeup call during Clinton's administration. If it didn't listen, what horror might have been visited upon this nation? George Bush is President and the Congress restructured a bit because God wants it that way.
