Women fleeing Planned Parenthood? More clinics closing due to incredibly low demand

It’s a war on women. That’s what abortion activists say whenever they talk about pro-life laws that would increase regulations for abortion clinics, because those standard regulations would mean many clinics would have to close. Rather than consider why it is that abortionists seem unable to hold themselves to the same standards that every other doctor is able to be held to, or what it means for women forced to be seen in these substandard clinics, the pro-abortion forces merely bemoan the “fact” that millions of women who need abortions will now be unable to get them. So it’s a war on women, they say.

Except there’s been an interesting string of events recently: Planned Parenthood clinics are closing because not enough women are using them. Three Planned Parenthood clinics in Oregon are closing due to a drop in patient visits. And now two clinics in Iowa are closing because they only averaged about one patient per month.

The Iowa-based [Planned Parenthood] affiliate, which also serves Arkansas, Nebraska and eastern Oklahoma, will close facilities in the communities of Red Oak and Creston effective June 18, after officials determined the centers each averaged about one patient per month.”

But there are millions of women lining up everywhere to get abortions, right? And let’s be realistic here — as much as the abortion lobby loves to talk about how they provide “health care” and not just abortions, it’s abortions that drives the industry. It’s abortion that keeps their doors open. For Planned Parenthood specifically, their most recent annual report showed that abortions make up 94% of their pregnancy services. So what happens when they lose that? Well, they take a big financial hit. It’s no wonder they try to manipulate and pressure women to choose abortion.

For all the pro-abortion talk of the “war on women” and how there are so many people who need abortion clinics, it’s interesting to see that the trend is evidently the opposite. Far from women lining up to have Planned Parenthood kill their unborn children, clinics are having to close because they have so few patients — which is good news, indeed.
