Planned Parenthood to close some Iowa clinics

DES MOINES, Iowa (KCCI-TV) Planned Parenthood of the Heartland is announcing the closure of four Iowa clinics.

The organization says Friday it will close centers in Ankeny, Fort Dodge, Mount Pleasant and Washington effective Dec. 12.

Board Chairman Bob Shaw says in a statement the closures reflect an effort to "focus our limited resources where our patients are located." Less than 10 percent of Planned Parenthood's Iowa patients visited those four centers.

After the closure, Planned Parenthood will operate 16 Iowa centers. The organization provides a variety of reproductive health care services, including abortions at some locations.

Responding to the closures, Jenifer Brown, executive director of Iowa Right to Life, says "not only are the lives of the unborn safer when they leave, but so are the lives of the women seeking their services."
