Funding Cuts in Wisconsin Mean Closing of Planned Parenthood Clinics
Huffington Post - Politics Blog: Planned Parenthood Wisconsin Closes Four Clinics Due to State Funding Cuts, by Laura Bassett:
Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin announced the closure of four family planning health centers on Monday as a result of the state legislature's elimination of funding to the health care provider.
The clinics in Beaver Dam, Johnson Creek, Chippewa Falls and Shawano, which serve approximately 2,000 patients, will close between April and July of this year. Planned Parenthood says that it is the only provider of reproductive health care in each of those four communities. . . .
