Vermont Planned Parenthood abortion business closes center

A Vermont Planned Parenthood facility will close for good at the end of February after more than 40 years.

A spokesperson for Planned Parenthood of Northern New England said they decided to close their Newport branch because of financial problems and the “reproductive health crisis,” likely a reference to pro-life laws and the possibility of Roe v. Wade being overturned later this year, WCAX News 3 reports.

“Because of limited resources and the national crisis for reproductive health access, we’re reallocating our resources,” spokesperson Kai Williams said. “PPNNE faced challenges delivering care at our Newport health center and the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated these issues.”

Asked for more details, Planned Parenthood spokesperson Eileen Sullivan told the VT Digger that the closure was caused by “complex” problems “including difficulty recruiting and retaining staff, low patient volume, facility needs and financial sustainability.”

The Newport facility did not abort unborn babies, but it did do abortion referrals. It also provided birth control, pregnancy and STD testing and other services, according to the report.

The abortion chain’s complaints linking the closure to a “reproductive health crisis” do not make sense because Vermont is one of the most pro-abortion states in the U.S. This week, the state legislature passed a state constitutional amendment that would keep abortion on demand legal even if Roe v. Wade is overturned, and the state has almost no restrictions on abortion.

Its reasons for closing suggest that its goals are financial, not patient-centered. Planned Parenthood and other abortion activists frequently complain about how pro-life laws close abortion facilities and force women to travel further. However, that is not the case in Vermont, and yet local news reports noted that the closure of the Newport facility will mean its former patients now will have to travel longer to similar facilities.
