The Planned Parenthood abortion facility in St. Davids, Pennsylvania, has shut down permanently, making it the third Planned Parenthood location in the state to shutter its doors since 2013.
The Pennsylvania Family Institute reports that participants in the 40 Days for Life campaign were pleasantly surprised to find a sign announcing closure, as they arrived to pray in front of the facility.
A sign on the entrance noted: “Planned Parenthood St. Davids closed on September 11,” accompanied by a “For Rent” sign on the property. The location was an abortion referral facility.
The closure comes in the wake of months of controversy for the abortion giant, as undercover tapes exposed Planned Parenthood’s role in trafficking fetal body parts. Lawmakers have demanded public funding for the abortion giant to end, and a redirection of those funds to comprehensive health facilities that serve women and children.
In 2013, Planned Parenthood closed two locations: the Carlisle and Collegeville abortion facilities. In total, nine abortion facilities have closed in the state. In the wake of the atrocities discovered in abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia “House of Horrors,” five abortion mills closed as a result of a new Pennsylvania state law requiring facility inspections.
The locations closed under the policy were Allentown Medical Services, American Women’s Services, UPMC Magee, Allegheny Women’s Center–Pittsburgh, and University of Pittsburgh Physicians.
