Pro-life organization Live Action has produced a video that utilizes Planned Parenthood's annual reports to show the actual decline in its healthcare services, while abortions have increased.

The only Planned Parenthood Clinic in the state of Wyoming will close its doors in July, according to a regional representative on Friday.

Planned Parenthood was among a list of optional providers.

The only Planned Parenthood in the state of Wyoming is closing down. After closing locations in Sioux City, Burlington, Keokuk, the Quad Cities and Bettendorf, eight will remain open in the state.

There are still several questions about how Iowa's new state-run program will work, said Jodi Tomlonovic, executive director of the Family Planning Council of Iowa.

As far as the memory aspect is concerned, there will be 4GB of RAM along with 32GB of expandable default storage space. The device in question, allegedly the Galaxy J7 Max, is expected to be priced somewhere around Rs 20,000 or less.

"What is happening in Iowa is what we could see across the country if Congress passes this risky law to defund Planned Parenthood", said Raegan McDonald-Mosley, M.D., chief medical officer at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, in a statement. "More than 14,000 patients who trust Planned Parenthood with their health care in these communities and in neighboring areas no longer have access to their provider of choice".

But Iowa's campaign to defund Planned Parenthood represents a stepped-up version of those other efforts, one that more closely resembles a provision in the Republican legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

The fact that Casper has other alternatives for women to receive "comprehensive reproductive health care" was part of the decision to close that facility, Mansanares said. We have been in Iowa for 83 years, and we are not going anywhere.

She also expects Wyoming donors to keep contributing to the Wyoming Abortion fund and other Planned Parenthood initiatives. "And instead what they are doing is, in order to target abortion providers, they have chose to stop accepting Medicaid dollars for family planning services and create their own, 100 percent state-funded family planning program specifically to preclude abortion providers from participating", she told Jezebel over the phone. With the program gone and a third of the state's Planned Parenthood clinics closing, those individuals may lose access to affordable health care.

"The changes PPHeartland is forced to make are the result of the budget signed May 12 by Gov. Branstad and supported by Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds and extreme legislators throughout this session", Planned Parenthood of the Heartland president/CEO Suzanna de Baca said in the statement. "As more people have become involved in the discussion, they've come to the realization that life begins at conception".
