BRYAN, TX, July 18, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - On the same day as Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed the state's new late-term abortion ban into law, Planned Parenthood has announced that they are closing three more clinics in the state, one of which performs abortions.

In a press release, Planned Parenthood blamed the closures on funding cuts that Republican lawmakers passed in 2011. Those funding cuts have already led to the closure of numerous Planned Parenthood clinics across the state.

However, one of the three clinics, the Bryan clinic, is also subject to the requirements of the new abortion law signed by Gov. Perry today. Abortion advocates have said that the law could close as many as 37 of the state's abortion facilities.

Well, that will show us, right? Or maybe not... maybe they should close several more to let the point start to sink in...

If they want to act like abortion is a ‘medical procedure’, it needs to be treated like one....in a medical facility.

Key excerpt from article:

Only five clinics in Texas currently meet the requirements of the law, while the rest will be required to make costly upgrades to bring their facilities up to snuff. The Bryan clinic would have been one of those.

I believe LifeSiteNews.com claims, in another article, that there are 42 Abortion Clinics in Texas. That means it is possible or perhaps likely that a TOTAL of 37 Abortion Clinics may close...

WHOOOOOPPPPEEEE!

There are a total of 37 that must make COSTLY upgrades to be in compliance, of the 42 in the state...

I probably need to source that, but it was in another LifeSiteNews.com article...

I wish the newly planned PP mega-abortion center in SW Ft Worth would suffer the same fate. But big cities apparently have more business (higher population of Leftists.)

Link to article that says 37 of 42 abortion mills in Texas are not in compliance:

LifeSiteNews.com: Dozens of clinics could close in wake of Texas law, say abortion supporters [by John Jalsevac]

Excerpt from that article about this:

In addition to banning abortions after 20 weeks, the bill also mandates that clinics meet the same safety standards as outpatient surgical centers. Currently 37 of the state’s 42 clinics fail to the meet these standards, meaning they will be required to make costly updates to their buildings, such as installing wider hallways, showers, and backup generators.

And so, being forbidden to carry out child sacrifices, the priests of Moloch departed the kingdom of Texas, cursing those who remained in the name of their bloody god.

The left claimed they didn’t want young girls hurt by quacks in back alleys using coat hangers. But they didn’t want them to have to go to a facility that met the same standards as every other medical facility.

I guess they just wanted to be slightly better than back alleys. Otherwise it might cost as much as say...a dental clinic or an ophthalmology lab to run an abortion clinic.

Wow...

The Texas Legislature and the Gov have un grande cohones when it comes to taking on Obama and his agenda and going on offense.

I'd love to see them now experiment and mimic this bill being announced today...

I refuse to celebrate when the Texas Code still grants explicit “legal” permission to murder every single child.

Need to start counting...

I believe LifeSiteNews.com claims, in another article, that there are 42 39 Abortion Clinics in Texas.

What was that song? ... 99 bottles of beer on the wall...

Take one down, pass it around, 98 bottles of beer on the wall

Maybe someone can write something similar about the closing of abortion clinics...

If only one republican would have stood up on the senate floor and said exactly what you just said. He could have had a bent coat hanger in one hand and a straight coat hanger in his other hand.

YES, PRAISE THE LORD!!!!

This is a HUGE answer to prayer!!

Here is some ironey to boot—

The announcement just went out from our local CBS affiliate, KBTX. The KBTX television station is across the street from the Planned Parenthood center where Abby Johnson worked. In 1997 the land for this center was purchased by a Houston attorney whose brother was employed at KBTX. This was all kept a secret at the time from the public. The Houston attorney sold the land in July 1997 to Planned Parenthood for $100,000 & the building commenced. It has been a thorn in our community’s side ever since and prayed about all these years. Her brother left for awhile and returned to KBTX a few years ago and is still there. Things do come around sometimes...
