Planned Parenthood suspends abortions at Wisconsin clinic
A Wisconsin Planned Parenthood has suspended abortion services at for six months.
From the Post Crescent:
The decision for the center, located at 3800 North Gillett St., is due to a “temporary gap in medical coverage,” Teri Huyck, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, said in a statement. Its family planning center at 508 W. Wisconsin Ave. will remain open.
The services at the Appleton North health center, which performed 583 abortions in 2014, stopped on Oct. 14. There are no plans to move the Appleton health center to another location, and the decision is unrelated to ongoing legislative scrutiny against Planned Parenthood, Riis said.
The organization found itself in the national spotlight this summer following a series of undercover videos released by an anti-abortion group. Planned Parenthood claims the videos were selectively edited and misleading.
