Three NM Planned Parenthood clinics to close this year

Three NM Planned Parenthood clinics to close this year

"We will do everything we can to continue to care for as many patients as we can".

Other Democratic legislators also were quick to voice their displeasure with Gov. Terry Branstad and Republican legislators, saying politicians should stay out of women's health care.

Governor Terry Branstad, who looks set to become US ambassador to China, signed a $1.7 billion health and human services appropriations bill on Friday. The organization pointed to a new state law that blocks federal family planning funds to abortion providers. This follows a bill Donald Trump signed in April giving states the ability to refuse to reimburse family planning centers that provide abortions from Medicaid and the Title X family grant program.

"I am concerned about the health and well-being of the people in Iowa who now can no longer turn to their trusted health care provider", Dr. Raegan McDonald-Mosley, Planned Parenthood's chief medical officer, told HuffPost.

Republicans in the House and Senate stripped state funding from clinics that offer abortion services.

Before Iowa, Texas became the first state to walk away from many millions in Medicaid funding for the objective of defunding Planned Parenthood. We have been in Iowa for 83 years, and we are not going anywhere. It's based on misguided beliefs.

It doesn't mandate absurd regulations to clinics, which the Supreme Court determined to be wholly unconstitutional; instead, it mandates that abortion care is different, that performing it is wrong, and if providers want to be reimbursed by Medicaid, they can not perform them.

"14,676. That's the number of patients these four health centers have served over the last three years, the number of individuals receiving letters this week notifying them their provider of choice is closing", de Baca said. It follows a similar move by Texas four years ago. A third clinic listed is the Central Iowa Shelter and Services, which is a homeless shelter.

"What is happening in Iowa is what we could see across the country if Congress passes this unsafe law to defund Planned Parenthood".

"We believe that public funds should not subsidize the abortion business when there are many other healthcare providers available", the Catholic Conference of Iowa said in a statement when the measure passed.

However, Planned Parenthood could face even more financial pressure as a result of proposals pending in Congress. Planned Parenthood has said its sites in Kansas City, Columbia, Joplin and Springfield would provide abortions without the restrictions. The Quad Cities facility in Bettendorf will remain open until the building is sold, though only telemed abortion services will be provided.
