WIN: Massachusetts Planned Parenthood inexplicably closes for good

As the state of Massachusetts debates the “ROE Act,” an abortion bill that would remove protections for abortion survivors, the Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts (PPLM) has announced that it is closing one of its central Massachusetts abortion facilities for good.

In a letter dated June 7, 2019, PPLM stated, “After careful consideration of our organization’s mission and a comprehensive analysis, Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts (PPLM) has decided to permanently close its Fitchburg Health Center and reallocate resources to our other health centers.”

According to the Planned Parenthood website, there are now just four Planned Parenthood locations in Massachusetts. In comparison, there are about 200 Federally Qualified Health Centers in the state.

 

As a result of the closing, PPLM said it will double the hours of the Marlborough Planned Parenthood Health Center, keeping it open six days a week, and will continue to keep their Worcester location open six days a week as well. While it is unclear exactly what caused the closing of the facility, Students for Life of America notes that Massachusetts is one of a few states that allows taxpayer dollars to be spent on abortion, and the governor just recently signed a bill to funnel millions of dollars into the state’s abortion corporation.

“In March 2019, Governor Charlie Baker signed legislation giving $8 million to abortion facilities that were set to lose money under the new Protect Life Rule instituted by the Trump administration, which bars $60 million in Title X family planning funds from going to abortion vendors,” said Students for Life. This is how a state attempts to ensure its low-income citizens kill their children through abortion, and the majority of Americans are against funding abortions with their taxpayer dollars.

Despite the governor’s best efforts to undermine the Trump administration’s pro-life policy, at least one abortion facility in the state had to be shut down, and hopefully, there will be more to follow.
