APPLETON, Wisconsin, August 23, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — Pro-life groups are celebrating after a Wisconsin Planned Parenthood closed its doors for good.
The Grand Chute Planned Parenthood in Appleton, situated in the northern part of the state, has had trouble finding an abortionist since October 2015. Last fall, the center temporarily closed, and now it is permanently shut down, according to Wisconsin Right to Life.
But the abortion chain says its northern Wisconsin location is closing because of “security” concerns and not lack of staff. In 2012, a man set fire to the facility. He died in prison in January while serving an 11-year sentence for setting the fire.
Chris Williams, the CEO of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, told local media that the desired security upgrades would cost $300,000, roughly twice the facility’s value.
Pro-Life Wisconsin cheered the news and credited God with closing the abortion center.
Planned Parenthood is only concerned with financial gain, the group wrote. “This place was a financial loser,” so “they aborted it with prejudice.”
“We are absolutely thrilled that unborn children will no longer lose their lives at this abortion facility,” said Heather Weininger, executive director of Wisconsin Right to Life. “As more and more women choose life every year in the state of Wisconsin, Planned Parenthood’s profit margin suffers. Ultimately, that is why Planned Parenthood of Appleton’s abortion facility is closing, and for that reason, we celebrate.”
I remember driving by the Appleton Planned Parenthood, which always had a full parking lot. So thankful their doors are now closed forever.
