Planned Parenthood to Close Its Only Wyoming Location for Financial Reasons

By Heather Clark - Posted at Christian News Network:

CASPER, Wy. — The abortion and contraception giant Planned Parenthood will close its only Wyoming location in July for financial reasons.

“We looked at what services we provided,” Adrienne Mansanares of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains told the Star Tribune this week. “We also looked at the financial health of the health center.”

She explained that most women obtaining services were going to the Fort Collins, Colorado location. The Casper location saw an estimated 500 women a year. It offered contraception, testing for sexually transmitted diseases and abortion referrals.

Spokeswoman Whitney Phillips said that Planned Parenthood will now refer women to area community health centers, which accept walk-ins and Medicaid.
