The Planned Parenthood abortion business has closed another clinic, this time in New Jersey. In recent weeks the Planned Parenthood abortion company has closed several abortion clinics nationwide. This brings the national total up to 17 this year.
According to local news reports, Planned Parenthood will permanently close its abortion referral clinic in Atlantic City. The site closed for good on Friday according to officials with the abortion Giant.
Here’s more information on the closing, with a stated reason that seems dubious and a potential coverup for a lack of customers:
Triste Brooks, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Northern, Central and Southern New Jersey, said the organization ended its lease at 2922 Atlantic Ave. near South Morris Avenue because of safety concerns.
“Planned Parenthood’s top priority is the health and safety of our patients, and due to concerns about the safety of the rented facility that housed our health center, we came to the difficult decision to end our lease,” she wrote in a statement.
Atlantic City patients may use Planned Parenthood’s Camden and Bellmawr sites in Camden County. All patient records are being transferred to the Camden facility in the transition.
The abortion chain has announced quite a few facility closings across the country already this year, including four in Iowa, two in Pennsylvania, one in Maryland, three in New Mexico, one in Wyoming and two in Colorado.
Recently, Californians for Life confirmed that the Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in Vacaville, Pittsburg and central Richmond are slated to close on June 30. All three are located in northern California; they did abortions on unborn babies up to 10 weeks.
“As more Californians understand the humanity of the child in the womb, abortion rates continue to drop and as more women decide to go elsewhere for their comprehensive healthcare needs, there are fewer clients going to the nation’s largest abortion provider,” said Wynette Sills, director of Californians for Life.
Sills said California women still will have dozens of places to go for comprehensive health care. She pointed to dozens of local community health centers in northern California, which provide a wider variety of health care services than Planned Parenthoods but don’t do abortions.
Abortion clinics in the United States are closing at a record pace as demand for their deadly business declines and abortionists retire, a 2016 Bloomberg analysis found.
Between 2011 and 2015, at least 162 abortion clinics closed or stopped doing abortions; 21 new abortion clinics opened in that same time period, according to the analysis. A report from Operation Rescue also showed 53 abortion clinics closed in 2015 alone.
Abortion is big business for Planned Parenthood. The abortion group’s annual report shows it performed 328,348 abortions on unborn babies in 2015, nearly 5,000 more than the previous year. Planned Parenthood does about one third of all abortions in the U.S.
Earlier this year, Planned Parenthood leaders refused an offer to receive an increase in taxpayer funding if the group stopped doing abortions. CEO Cecile Richards called the offer “obscene and insulting,” making it very clear that abortion – not women’s health care – is essential to Planned Parenthood.
Patient numbers and non-abortion health care services have been dropping in the past few years while its abortion numbers remain steady, the abortion group’s annual reports show.
