Planned Parenthood to close Appleton, Green Bay clinics after Act 37 signing

compassionPlanned Parenthood says that it will force its Appleton and Green Bay, Wisconsin clinics to close, and this will lead to long waiting lists in Milwaukee. The Appleton abortion mill will shut down Monday, and the Green Bay mill will close August 1.

The move comes after Gov. Scott Walker signed Act 37 into law — requiring women undergo an ultrasound before having an abortion. Pro-choice abortion groups in Wisconsin say they’re fighting the law with everything they have, while pro-life groups say the law will allow women to be better informed when deciding whether to go through with an abortion.

Act 37 states abortion providers must give women a description of the ultrasound images, including the dimensions of the unborn child, as well as any external features and internal organs that are visible on the image.

Both Planned Parenthood and the ACLU of Wisconsin have filed lawsuits hoping the courts will find that Act 37 violates a woman’s constitutional rights under Roe v. Wade. Wisconsin Right to Life says it is confident the bill will be upheld.

    My heart is rejoicing over this decision~~"we" were bought and paid for and our bodies are not our own to abuse and do with as we please!
    As someone who has never had the precious privilege of giving birth to a child this is one topic that really makes me angry as a Christian. I try to steer clear as much as possible because frankly this makes me want to smack the daylights out of someone who thinks it only a "blob" or a "fetus" rather than a beautiful gift from God himself!
    I am always amazed at our "establishment" when a pregnant woman is killed and the baby dies as well and someone is charged with a double murder (all of a sudden that "blob" or "fetus" becomes a person, with rights as well) yet when it comes to disposing of that "blob" or "fetus" through abortion it is perfectly all right…..woe unto them that call evil good and good evil!

    • Hmm…you never had a child, but you want to force women to have kids they don't want? Forced breeding is right for other women because you did not choose to or were unable to have a child? That's pretty twisted.

        Rachel,
        Breeding is for cattle, and as a general rule most humans do not "force" other humans to "breed"…..it should be something that both partners enjoy, and a child is the natural outcome of a loving relationship….if you don't want the child take precautions or abstain!

        The only thing twisted here is your ridiuclous, outlandish statement: 'you want to force women to have kids they don't want…forced breeding….'

        Madam, no one is forcing anyone to 'breed'. How laughable is that! Women CHOSE to have sex (and are doing so quite freely and often these days) and they know the consequences of that action beforehand. Are we just animals who can't control themselves…who are victims of fate? No, we are people created in God's image who are capable of making choices and are responsible to accept the consequences of our choices. Just because a pregnancy is 'unplanned' does not give a women the right to kill the baby growing inside her. It is not a blob, not just a part of her body. It is dependent on her but a completely separate individual entirely. Wouldn't the loving, selfless option be to birth the child and allow a childless couple (who want to parent) have a baby to love? What a wonderful thing…give a baby the gift of life and then give a childless couple a baby to love. It is the loving, kind, selfless thing to do. But… we live in a self centered, me-first society today where killing is considered good, a 'right' even. But someone wanting a mother to allow her child to live so it can be adopted is considered evil, unfair, unjust. The Bible says in the Last Days people will be without natural affection and unmerciful. Today we have expectant 'mothers' who don't have any natural affection for the life growing inside of them. It is just a nusiance to be gotten rid of. It didn't used to be so.

        Abortion…the ultimate, most extreme form of child abuse. I am so very glad my two children's birthmoms chose life for them.

        I cringed at the term "forced breeding", too- but unfortunately it goes along with the modern lies of evolution and radical environmentalism. People are ultimately led to view people no differently than anything else on the planet rather than God's prized creation; in and out of the womb.
