Planned Parenthood clinic in New York State to close

Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood, located in the Albany, New York area, has announced the planned closing of its medical abortion clinic in Latham, NY.

In an article in the Times Union, Planned Parenthood spokesperson, Blue Carreker, said, "We have been looking for several years at ways to increase our efficiency as a nonprofit health care provider. We are always pressed to make the best use of our dollars and we haven't seen increases to our funding for many years, while the cost of providing health care has gone up."

According to Planned Parenthood, the Latham clinic saw 1,200 customers a year and that was simply not enough business to keep the clinic open.

Congratulations to the Citizens Concerned for Human Life, Schenectady County Right to Life, Scripture Wall, and the Capital Region Pro-Life Council that have worked for decades fighting Planned Parenthood’s agenda in the region. May God continue to bless your efforts.
