Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz Closes Clinic in Pueblo, Colorado

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRG) runs abortion businesses or abortion referral clinics in Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Wyoming and Utah. Thankfully, however, another one of their facilities is shutting down in Colorado.

According to RDO NewsChannel 13, Pueblo’s only Planned Parenthood facility will close at the end of February.

The closure of this facility is the result of new ownership of the shopping center where the abortion facility resides. When the shopping center sold, the new owner decided not to renew Planned Parenthood’s lease; and Planned Parenthood said they were unable to find anywhere else in town to rent.

Steven Ertelt, the president of the pro-life group Colorado Citizens for Life, said the closing was good news for the pro-life community and for women and unborn children.

“Planned Parenthood destroys hundreds of thousands of unborn babies every year and kills and injures countless women in the process,” Ertelt said. “That there is one less clinic directing women to abortions is good news for Colorado. There are dozens of organizations and programs across the state that are ready today to help pregnant women in need and their unborn children with everything from medical care and childcare to diapers and formula.”


As LifeNews previously reported, PPRG has sure had their share of scandals in the last few years.

In 2013, an abortion patient filed suit against PPRM for botching an abortion so badly that it left part of the body of the unborn baby inside her afterwards. According to the complaint filed in Byer v. Doe in El Paso County District Court, Byer told the abortionist in the surgical procedure room that she did not want to go forward with the abortion because she had not received the promised anesthetic after staff members had difficulty getting an I.V. into her vein. The abortionist assured her an I.V. would be administered, turned on the vacuum machines, and told Byer it was too late to stop.

The abortionist stopped after seven minutes and sent Byer home with pain pills. According to the suit, she was completely unaware that part of her baby’s dismembered body remained inside her.

Then in 2014, former Lieutenant Governor of Colorado, Jane Norton, filed a lawsuit against PPRM because they violated the state constitution by using state funding to go to their abortion business. And in the same year a mother sued the abortion giant after they failed to inquire about suspected sexual abuse of her thirteen-year-old daughter. In 2012, the girl visited Planned Parenthood with her stepfather, who had been abusing her since she was six.

Additionally, last year Live Action released a video of PPRG encouraging young teen females to participate in sado-masochistic sexual activities, including gagging, whipping, asphyxiation, shopping at sex stores, and viewing pornography. Planned Parenthood employees also told these girls that “stop,” really doesn’t always mean, “stop”. This advice benefits Planned Parenthood because when girls participate in sexually risky behavior and get pregnant, they can go to Planned Parenthood for an abortion.

So to put it mildly, it is a very good thing that another one of PPRG’s facilities is closing down. In 2011, two other PPRM facilities closed down in Colorado, one in Colorado Springs and the other in Denver.
