Planned Parenthood Abortion Business Closes Two Clinics in Colorado

Written by  Micaiah Bilger

Two more Planned Parenthood facilities announced plans Friday to close their doors, this time in Colorado.

The Times-Call reports the abortion chain’s facilities in Longmont and Parker, Colorado will close this summer.

Neither location performed abortions, but both referred for them.

Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Whitney Phillips told the newspaper they are closing because of a “tough financial landscape” and interestingly, Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act).

“We supported (the ACA) because we love the idea of more people having health insurance and increasing access to the critical services that they need, but a lot of our patients were self-pay,” Phillips said. “They would come in and get a pap smear and pay out of pocket. Under the ACA, a lot of patients were given the opportunity to be on Medicaid. Again, that’s wonderful, but it meant that rather than bill them directly, we had to bill Medicaid. And Medicaid reimburses at a very low rate.”

Some of the abortion group’s other Colorado locations will expand their hours to accommodate patients, according to a Planned Parenthood news release.

The two facilities are part of the Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains affiliate, which announced a total of six closings this week. These include three more facilities in New Mexico and one in Wyoming.
