Joining six other Planned Parenthood clinics that have closed or been blocked from opening in the first month of 2015, the Pueblo, Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic will close before the end of February.
KRDO, a local news channel, reports that the shopping center where Planned Parenthood is located came under new ownership recently. The new owner would not agree to a lease with Planned Parenthood, and the abortion giant could not locate another place in Pueblo to rent.
The Pueblo clinic is under the direction of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM), a particularly corrupt branch of Planned Parenthood. Recently, this branch has been complicit in committing a forced, botched abortion; sending a minor girl back to her rapist; suggesting illegal activity to a minor; misusing taxpayer dollars for sex ed; and more.
PPRM has also made a habit of lying to Colorado citizens — from its outrageously preposterous claims about state personhood amendments to its blatant lie about taxpayers’ money.
In this 2013 press release, PPRM claimed that it had been operating for over 10 years “without public funding.” The facts, however, are that from 2009-2013, PPRM received $14 million in public funding — both federal and state tax dollars.
