Victory: Planned Parenthood Ends Abortions at 7 Arizona Locations in 3 Cities

Good news out of the Grand Canyon State — Planned Parenthood has announced they will stop performing abortions at seven locations across Arizona.

The clinics no longer offering abortions are located in the cities of Prescott Valley, Flagstaff and Yuma. The local Arizona Republic reports:

The move means there will no longer be abortion services in communities outside of metro Phoenix and Tucson. The announcement comes on the heels of an appellate court ruling that upheld a 2009 law placing new restrictions on the procedure — including the requirement that nurse practitioners no longer perform surgical abortions.

According to the article, Planned Parenthood currently operates thirteen clinics across the state, including three that do not offer abortions on-site. That means the hub of Planned Parenthood’s abortion business in Arizona will now be confined to the higher-population areas around Phoenix and Tucson.

So now we know where to focus our activism next!

    I’m confused, so up till this ruling, nurse practitioners could perform the abortions??? This is ridiculous!! Does this mean that other Planned Parenthood Clinics and other chains are allowing nurses to perform something even a Doctor shouldn’t do? There is no end to my shock and dismay.

  • AMEN ~ Abortion Must End Now

    Power of Prayer!!!  We will continue to meet at the Yuma Planned Parenthood every Sunday at 7:00 until the doors are closed for good!

    Yay God, Prayer does work… I will pray continuously for more and more Planned Parenthood facilities to close, for more and more young men and women to become more responsible, for more and more parents to teach their young sons and daughters about what love really is and what it really is not.  I will pray continually for those women who can not concieve on their own to love someone elses baby as their very own, and for the mothers of those babies, for their hearts to heal and for them to know that no matter what, God really does love them still.
