Planned Parenthood Indiana Closes Five Clinics

In announcing the clinic closures, Planned Parenthood claims losing some of its federal grant money, but critics suspect other reasons.

-- From "Planned Parenthood: 5 Ind. clinics will close" Associated Press 9/8/09

The clinics in Anderson, Franklin, Kokomo, Shelbyville and Indianapolis will close over the next six months, Planned Parenthood of Indiana said in a statement provided to The Associated Press . . .

Planned Parenthood expects to lose some of the funding it receives in federal grants administered by the Indiana State Department of Health. The grants were used to help pay some of the costs for patient treatment.

Starting in October, the nonprofit Indiana Family Health Council will take over administering $2 million in grants, some of which previously went to Planned Parenthood. The council will require clinics that receive grants to charge women on a sliding scale depending on their income.

From "Indiana Planned Parenthood Closes Five Centers After Hiding Abortion-Sex Abuse" by Steven Ertelt, Editor 9/7/09

The centers are closing despite the record amount of money the abortion business received from the federal government in the last fiscal year.

The total government grants and contracts received by PPFA affiliates from government sources including state, local and federal governments, increased from $337 million to $350 million.

Looking at Planned Parenthood data from 1997 to the present, the increase in government funding corresponds with an increase in the number of abortions.

The closings also come after videos showed Planned Parenthood centers in Bloomington and Indianapolis covering up a potential case of sexual abuse and urging a young woman to go out of state for an abortion without her parents knowing.

A prior videotape showing the same thing occurring at a Bloomington, Indiana abortion business led to the firing of the staff member involved.

Such a secret abortion would violate Indiana's parental involvement laws.
