Planned Parenthood Northern California is set to close three locations, including Vacaville, Pittsburg, and central Richmond, on June 30th, according to local pro-life leaders and confirmed by a Planned Parenthood spokesperson.

These California closures follow closely after Planned Parenthood’s recent announcement of closing ten locations in Iowa, New Mexico, Wyoming, and Colorado.

Abortions through 10 weeks of pregnancy, using the Abortion Pill, were done at these three northern California Planned Parenthood locations. “As more Californians understand the humanity of the child in the womb, abortion rates continue to drop and as more women decide to go elsewhere for their comprehensive healthcare needs, there are fewer clients going to the nation’s largest abortion business” said Wynette Sills, Director of Californians for Life.

Planned Parenthood Northern California Affiliate’s Annual Report for 2016 shows their revenue exceeded $50 million dollars a year, while their expenses were only $45 million, leaving over $5 million dollars in excess revenue.

    This piece is just weird. More women are using abortion pills that terminate pregnancy up to 10 weeks, hence there is less need for surgical abortions. It would seem that this is one of the reasons that abortion clinics are closing, not, as this article claims, “more Californians understand the humanity of the child in the womb.” This and other reasons. Abortion clinics aren’t needed if surgical abortions become moot do to abortion drugs. Duh.

    • These three Planned Parenthood locations offered the Abortion Pill, not surgical abortion. Yet all three of them are closing. Abortion rates, as a combination of both surgical and medical abortion pill, are declining, even here in California. Planned Parenthood businesses are closing due to lack of clients, as more women are deciding to go elsewhere for their healthcare needs. These closures are not due to lack of funding, as they pocketed $5 million dollars in cash, as documented in their own most recent annual report, with revenues far in excess of expenses. The Pittsburg location was already only open three days a week due to lack of business. Without enough clients, the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood, will continue to close…

    From Planned Parenthood’s own website: “With medication abortion, some people like that you don’t need to have a procedure in a doctor’s office. You can have your medication abortion at home or in another comfortable place that you choose. You get to decide who you want to be with during your abortion, or you can go it alone. Because medication abortion is similar to a miscarriage, many people feel like it’s more “natural” and less invasive.”

    Therefore, no more need for abortion clinics. That doesn’t mean that .

    • Currently, clients still have to go to Planned Parenthood to obtain the Abortion Pill here in California. Without Planned Parenthood, there are fewer abortion businesses and hence fewer abortions in our state.

        Thanks for the information Wynette but I’m still confused. Is it the closure of abortion clinics that causes fewer abortions, or is it that fewer abortions are what is driving the closure of abortion clinics? You seem to have given both in your posts. Is Planned Parenthood the ONLY place that the abortion medications are obtainable, or do other places like, say Kaiser provide them for their patients?

    AND MAY ALL OF THESE KILLING MILLS CLOSE IN OUR COUNTRY AND THE WORLD!!!

    Can’t wait for Baywood in San Mateo to close! Please Lord, terminate its existence now.
