Planned Parenthood to Close Its Only Wyoming Location for Financial Reasons

CASPER, Wy. — The abortion and contraception giant Planned Parenthood will close its only Wyoming location in July for financial reasons.

“We looked at what services we provided,” Adrienne Mansanares of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains told the Star Tribune this week. “We also looked at the financial health of the health center.”

She explained that most women obtaining services were going to the Fort Collins, Colorado location. The Casper location saw an estimated 500 women a year. It offered contraception, testing for sexually transmitted diseases and abortion referrals.

Spokeswoman Whitney Phillips said that Planned Parenthood will now refer women to area community health centers, which accept walk-ins and Medicaid.

The closure is one of six in the region, which includes Planned Parenthood locations in Colorado, New Mexico and southern Nevada.

Some have noted that the development underscores the pro-life position that there are other places to obtain sexually-related health services besides Planned Parenthood.

“[W]e think it’s better to send [taxpayer] dollars to those clinics that do a very good job of giving women the services they need—the preventative services—without all the controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said in January.

The organization has argued that if it were defunded, women would have no place to go or would have difficulty finding health care.

“[Planned Parenthood officials] claim if Planned Parenthood is defunded, women will lose access to health care. They also claim that community health centers, which outnumber Planned Parenthoods by more than 20 to one and would receive the funding that Planned Parenthood currently gets, will not be able to handle all their patients,” outlined writer Micaiah Bilger.

“But Planned Parenthood has been closing facilities across the U.S. and referring their patients to these community health centers itself—and the abortion chain has not even lost its taxpayer funding yet,” he wrote.

According to reports, Planned Parenthood closed 27 locations in 2016.

Sanger’s newsletter “The Woman Rebel.”

Planned Parenthood, originally known as the American Birth Control League, was founded by Margaret Sanger, a feminist who decried what she characterized as women serving as “incubators.”

“Woman’s role has been that of an incubator and little more. She has given birth to an incubated race,” she wrote in “Woman and the New Race.” “In the mass, she has brought forth quantity, not quality. The requirement of a male dominated civilization has been numbers. She has met that requirement.”

“This is the dawn. Womanhood shakes off its bondage. It asserts its right to be free. In its freedom, its thoughts turn to the race. Like begets like. We gather perfect fruit from perfect trees,” Sanger said. “The relentless efforts of reactionary authority to suppress the message of birth control and of voluntary motherhood are futile. The powers of reaction cannot now prevent the feminine spirit from breaking its bonds. ”

Sanger, who was a staunch advocate of eugenics, also made a correlation between birth control and the purification of the races, referring to those with disabilities as being “morons,” “idiots” and “imbeciles.”

“Birth control itself, often denounced as a violation of natural law, is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defectives,” she wrote in the aforementioned publication. “If we are to make racial progress, this development of womanhood must precede motherhood in every individual woman.”

      Do you have any evidence that Mengele was ever in the United states?

      • Ambulance Chaser

        His evidence is “Google it.”

        No i have no evidence , that there even was a second world war. I just have to take other peoples word for it. They could fool me easy with stuff they said was from the second world war.

          Solipsism is a terrible way to look at the world. Are you going to claim that the US government faked the wreckage of the USS Arizona and the military cemetery in the Punchbowl and no one ever said anything?

        • Chris

          “No i have no evidence , that there even was a second world war.”

          You don’t? The pictures of war damage, soldiers under fire, battles, people’s tetimony who lived through it, and the written evidence from the period does it for me.

          “I just
          have to take other peoples word for it.”

          How many people have said they saw Mengele in the United states and how well did those people know him? People can be mistaken in their identifications. After all I’ve seen people that were virtual doubles for relatives I know have been dead for many years.

          “They could fool me easy with
          stuff they said was from the second world war.”

          If it was just a couple of people telling you something I’d be wary too. If it was lots of people, photos, documents, etc, then my skepticism would tend to be a bit harder to maintain.

          There are usually considered to be two guiding principles to skepticism.
          1) Adjust your belief to the evidence provided.
          2) The more extraordinary the thing being asked to believe the more evidence you should require.

        maybe not Mengele specifically ……. but Operation Paperclip brought numerous Nazis to the US after the war ……….. there are giant swastikas on a SEAL base in San Jose, Coronado Naval Air Station …… so there is a post-war Nazi influence on the US government ….. even DIA has the runways in a swastika pattern ……….

        • TheLastHonestLawyer

          Um, Coronado is in San Diego, about 470 miles from San Jose. The rest of your post is equally lacking in factual content.

      And back alley abortions.

      Yes, one less Planned Parenthood will result in MORE abortions.

      • Amos Moses

        Its clear that laws against lion hunting won’t stop lion hunting, it will only make lion hunting dangerous for the lion hunters, because banning lion hunting will drive hunters into remote back alley jungles to seek unsafe hunting. We do not want to return to back alley hunting.

        • Ambulance Chaser

          Okay, but that has nothing to do with anything I said.

          • Amos Moses

            it was mockery of what you wrote ………..

            Which really didn’t work.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            That may be what you were TRYING to do, but you failed. See above “not having anything to do with what I said.”

          • Amos Moses

            mockery does not have to have anything specific to do with what was said ….. it just points out the incongruity of the position ….. and it did that quite effectively …………….

          • Ambulance Chaser

            Yes I’m aware of what an analogy is. What you don’t seem to understand is that you’re not “pointing out incongruity.” You’re attacking a position I never held.

    • That’s the dumbest statement ever. People go in there because they are already pregnant. That’s just ignorant. They already have the disease if they walk in. They are ALREADY pregnant. They should have considered that before yanking their pants down. Spike in STD? Really? Keep playing croquet because obviously you don’t need but 1 brain cell for that game.

      • TheLastHonestLawyer

        Speaking of ignorance. Look at the name. Planned Parenthood. They perform many services for women including contraception, fertility testing, prenatal checkups, pregnancy classes, parenting classes, educational outreach to help slow the spread of STDs, cancer screenings, and so on.

        I am thrilled that my daughter had access to our local PP.

        Saying that Planned Parenthood just does abortions is like saying your local fire department just gets cats out of trees.

      • Croquet_Player

        You obviously don’t know the first thing about Planned Parenthood services. They provide low cost birth control, including condoms, so people can AVOID pregnancy and STDs.

    Planned Parenthood Doc who wanted a Lamborghini for Selling Aborted Babies caught selling Baby Parts Again .

    • Colin Rafferty

      Is that a headline from The Onion? If it’s true, where’s the article?

      • taxpayer22

        Mary Gatter, the Planned Parenthood senior executive who infamously was caught on tape saying “I want a Lamborghini” while discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies has been caught again.

        • Colin Rafferty

          Thanks, I found the video. So just like the last time, she’s doing nothing illegal. As shown before, getting reimbursed for costs is legal and appropriate.

          In fact, it’s convenient that you are comparing it to the previous video, because we all know who actually was breaking the law previously.

          • taxpayer22

            in 2015, Mary Gatter, the Medical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley in California, was caught selling aborted baby body parts to undercover investigators posing as officials with a biotech company that acts as a middleman to sell aborted baby body parts to universities and other places that conduct such research.

            In the prior video, Gatter discusses the pricing of aborted baby body parts — telling the biotech company officials that the prices for such things as a baby’s liver, head or heart are negotiable.

            In this new video, Gatter is again caught haggling over per-specimen pricing for livers, lungs, and brains, even while insisting the purchaser must do all the work to harvest.

          • Colin Rafferty

            Right, and she was doing nothing illegal then, and nothing illegal now. What’s your point of repeating the facts?

            Do you think that her past conduct was illegal? If so, how do you explain the fact that she had zero indictments? This was a pretty well-publicized issue, and if she had, in fact, done something illegal, someone would have surely indicted her.

            Of course, there were indictments because of the video, but it wasn’t her or anyone else at Planned Parenthood.

          • Amos Moses

            false charges were levied …. so what ……

          • Amos Moses

            cause “legal” is the only standard ….. nope …….

          • Colin Rafferty

            Without saying “I don’t like abortion”, what is immoral about using organs for research? When I die, I am donating all my organs to either reuse or for research. I would do the same if one of my children died.

          • Amos Moses

            Lion hunting should be safe, legal, and rare. But in those cases when a lion is killed, just think of all the good things that come from its death. All the research that could be done with the lions harvested organs. Antichoicers only care about lions, not the countless people who could benefit from the harvested lions organs.

          • Colin Rafferty

            I’m not sure what analogy you are trying to make. We do research on animals all the time — even other primates.

            So what is immoral about using human organs for research?

          • Amos Moses

            people are more concerned about killing lions than killing children …..

          • Colin Rafferty

            I disagree strongly. Specifically, I disagree with your implicit assumption that a fetus is a child.

            But if you don’t want to discuss organ donation, that’s fine. Just don’t complain about it.

          • TheLastHonestLawyer

            Number of lions left in the wild: 20,000 according to the experts.

            Number of humans left in the world: 7,505,000,000 or so, with 132,000 being added every day.

            We can afford a few more human deaths over the lions, and there is no reason to hunt lions other than raging sexual inadequacy.

  • Theo

    If truth was required in advertising, they’d be “Child Killing Centers,” not “Planned Parenthood.”

    • Amos Moses

      but its “Planned” killing ………….

    • TheLastHonestLawyer

      Read the article, this center did not perform abortions. And Planned Parenthood does a lot more than abortion-related work.

      Can we start referring to churches as “Child Molestation Centers”? After all, there are dozens of recent cases of priests and pastors using the power of their offices to molest kids.

      Or would you say that’s not fair?

      • I guess we can refer to homes as “Child Molestation Centers” if we’re really going to be fair. Nope the Casper location does not perform abortions, it only refers to them instead. Hmmm what does that mean? Let’s see, gives you the names of doctors that will give you the baby killing doctors? Since we’re being honest here ‘lawyer’. That’s kinda an oxymoron isn’t it? Honest lawyer? BAHAHAHA.

        • TheLastHonestLawyer

          Thank you for making my point for me. It’s hyperbole to refer to Planned Parenthood as Child Killing Centers. Deliberately inflammatory and not helpful.

          Abortion is legal in this country, and doctors are allowed to perform them. Even in the face of anti-choice terrorism,.

          It’s why I’m the last one! The name comes from a toast given by a friend at a 20th anniversary party for my wife and I. He said that everyone knows that lawyers always lie, but I was the last honest lawyer on Earth. Then he pointed out that he was a lawyer, and probably lying.

          Oh, if you don’t like abortions, don’t have one. Simple as that.

          • And if your lame ass don’t want a kid, keep your damn pants up. That’s pretty simple too don’t you think???? Idiots Idiots EVERYWHERE!!!

          • TheLastHonestLawyer

            Yes, because in your world abortions are never done for medical reasons.

          • There is never a reason to murder a baby!!!

          • TheLastHonestLawyer

            Go look up Ectopic Pregnancy. The are plenty of conditions where a pregnancy can kill the woman carrying the fetus. Are you seriously saying that you would condemn a woman to death for the crime of having a failing pregnancy?

            Now go read up on Tay Sachs. Would you condemn a child to that miserable, brief life? Are you that much of a heartless monster?

          • It’s not as simple as that. ABORTION IS THE PREMEDITATED MURDER OF A BABY YOU GODLESS TWIT.

      • Cut off enough of the body and it will die and the sooner the better.

        • TheLastHonestLawyer

          So, you oppose low cost cancer screenings for women? You oppose low cost prenatal care?

          Why do you hate freedom for women so much?

          • Those can all be had without Planned Murderhood.

          • TheLastHonestLawyer

            OK, show me the locations in Wyoming where a woman can get all the services offered by Planned Parenthood for the same cost.

          • That is not my problem. THE MURDER OF BABIES IS THE PROBLEM AND BECAUSE OF THAT PP NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN. IF YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND THAT THEN YOU ARE TOO STUPID TO LIVE OR UNDERSTAND ANYTHING WORTH UNDERSTANDING.

          • TheLastHonestLawyer

            Funny, you claimed that all the services offered by Planned Parenthood could be found elsewhere, a positive claim. Yet when asked to back that up, you couldn’t.

            Abortion is legal. I’d prefer it to be almost unneeded, but that would require comprehensive sex education and universal access to contraception . . . hey! Those are services Planned Parenthood offers!

            Admit it, you just hate that women have control of their own bodies. Oh, and read the site rules concerning personal attacks.

    Although i am personally opposed to the practice, i don’t want to impose my values on others, so if someone else wants to hunt lions, then who am i to judge. My motto is if you do not like lion hunting then don’t kill one.

    • Grace Kim Kwon

      I know what you mean. Mankind is screwed when they value lions more than their own children. Lions and the oceans hate mankind for killing the unborn human children. Romans 8.

    • yabruf

      I understand the viewpoint, but do you take that same stance on everything?
      If I follow your logic you wouldn’t kill your own kid but wont judge someone else for killing theirs.
      What about sexual abuse? You wouldn’t rape your own kid but wont judge anyone who does?
      What about drug abuse? You wouldn’t give crack to your own kid but won’t judge someone who does?

      See how silly your logic sounds? Lets look at another subject not involving murder of children. You wouldn’t rob a bank but you wouldn’t judge someone who does?
      You wouldn’t cut someone’s throat but wouldn’t judge someone who does? Really?

      See I think you would be quick to judge someone on just about any other form of immorality except when you have to take a stand for something that goes against our sick culture. Comparing hunting an animal to the mutilation, and murder of innocent human beings just doesn’t make any sense.
