The War on Women is supposedly waged by pro-life advocates opposing abortion and the Obama administrations HHS mandate forcing religious groups to pay for abortions and birth control. But it looks like it’s the Obama administration that’s engage in a war on women.

A women’s cancer center in Fort Collins, Colorado is closing down because of the ramifications of Obamacare:

pichealth31Women’s Resource Center closed its doors suddenly Friday, stating that Obamacare has changed donor perceptions of the need for reduced women’s healthcare services.

The nonprofit, which has provided a wide array of bilingual health and human services primarily for un/underinsured women, has operated in Larimer County since 1975. WRC programs focused specifically included breast, cervical, ovarian and reproductive cancers; dental health; diabetes prevention and education.

“The perception among many of our previous grantors seemed to be that Obamacare would now be able to provide for all women’s health needs,” said a statement released by the WRC board Friday. “We started to develop a program to provide short term crisis management for women who needed assistance with prioritizing and finding solutions to many of life’s difficulties, especially mental health issues.”



The statement continued to say that many other county agencies were “fully supportive” of the nonprofit’s attempts to remain relevant in the changing face of healthcare, but the decision was not backed up by the needed funding to remain open.

The WRC website had events, including monthly mammogram vans at local retailers, scheduled through April 10, 2014. The organization’s Facebook, Twitter and website had no mention of the closure, which was confirmed by staff and board members, Friday morning.
