Wyoming and North Dakota. If we were playing Jeopardy, that would be the answer and the question would be: What are the only two states where the Planned Parenthood abortion business does not have a clinic?
Pro-life advocates today are celebrating the fact that, next month, two states in the United States will not be subjected to the agenda of the nation’s biggest abortion company.
As LifeNews reported yesterday, the Planned Parenthood facility in Casper, Wyoming plans to close on July 21 due to financial reasons. The facility did not perform abortions but did refer for them. It is the only Planned Parenthood in the state. The facility has been open since 1975 — sending Wyoming women to other centers for abortions.
“We looked at what services we provided,” Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains official Adrienne Mansanares said. “We also looked at the financial health of the health center.”
Mansanares said the decision did not relate to the U.S. Congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.
Responding to that news, and representative of a national pro-life group says he is delighted by the news and he noted that the abortion Corporation has closed hundreds of clinics over the last couple decades.
Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League, stated:
The Casper facility is the last Planned Parenthood medical office in the state of Wyoming. It also does not run any medical facilities in North Dakota. As a result, Planned Parenthood will only operate its clinics in 48 states. This is good news for women and good news for preborn babies in those states.
According to published reports, the Casper facility is just one of six clinics PPRM plans to close this year. Nationwide, Planned Parenthood has gone from 938 clinics in 1995 to 625 at the beginning of this year. People get worried about what happens to women when Planned Parenthood facilities close. In Casper, there are three other clinics to provide needed healthcare. This is common across the country—in big cities as well as in rural areas. The fact is Planned Parenthood is not needed.
Sedlak warned that, although Planned Parenthood is closing its last clinic in Wyoming, it still says it will continue its sex indoctrination programs and political advocacy.
He stated: “Planned Parenthood sex programs are designed to get our children involved in sexual activity. Although we are happy that Wyoming will no longer have a physical Planned Parenthood facility, parents and religious leaders must continue their efforts to keep PP-style sex programs away from our kids.”
But for the residents of North Dakota and Wyoming, the news is good that the nation’s biggest abortion business will no longer be operating full-time centers routing women to locations to kill their babies. What state will be third?
