One of the busiest abortion facilities in Massachusetts may be shutting its doors soon, and is begging for donations to help stay open. Womens Health Services in Brookline, a suburb of Boston, claims to only have a few months left if it doesnt get more money, fast even though it is the third busiest abortion facility in the state.
Womens Health Services (WHS), which has been open for 27 years, launched a GoFundMe page with the hope of raising $250,000; so far, it is far short of that goal. Allegedly, the loss of a grant has left them with a financial deficit, requiring them to raise money to stay open. If our clinic disappeared, many New Englanders would not have their urgent medical needs met, the clinic wrote. As an independent provider that serves a vulnerable population and receives no government funding in politically uncertain times, it is devastating to imagine WHS closing its doors.
According to the Boston Globe, WHS did not receive any government funding cuts, but did fail to receive a relief grant from the National Abortion Federation. However, Planned Parenthood rushed to blame the potential closure on pro-life laws. Independent abortion providers are a key part of the ecosystem of abortion access and are essential parts of their communities. When politicians chip away at abortion access, independent providers can carry the heaviest burdens while fighting with fewer resources, Dr. Jennifer Childs-Roshak, chief executive of the Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts, told the Boston Globe. In a time of ongoing political attacks on health care access, we need all doors to stay open.
This is an interesting statement, given the fact that Planned Parenthood centers now make up over 51% of the nations abortion facilities, and the corporation has a reputation for driving independent facilities out of business. As previously reported, Planned Parenthood is grabbing more and more of the market share for abortion facilities, and they have likewise been opening mega-facilities across the country which then crowds out small, independent facilities like WHS. Its the same principle as when a Walmart opens in a small town and forces mom-and-pop shops to close. But of course, it doesnt suit planned Parenthoods agenda to admit that theyre a large part of the reason so many small facilities close even if the smaller facilities commit abortions Planned Parenthood doesnt, like WHS.
WHS is the only abortion facility in the state of Massachusetts that commits abortions up to the state limit, which is 24 weeks. While the facility website doesnt make it clear what abortion procedure they use, the most common procedure at that time is a dilation and evacuation, or D&E. This is a violent procedure which takes multiple days, and involves ripping a preborn child apart limb from limb, when they almost surely can feel pain. There isnt any nonhospital facility that provides that. Outside of this state, there are no providers of that care, so we have people coming from all over New England, facility medical director Laurent Delli-Bovi told WCVB.
Delli-Bovi said they have been operating at a loss since 2006, and lose $170,000 a year.
So the baby butchers are going broke. Good. Anyone who gives them money is an accomplice. Our government should not be using taxpayers money unlawfully to keep these killers in business, but we know they do.
'Good morning, what health care may we provide to you today? Tetanus booster? Mole check? Flu shot?'
'No, I want to kill someone.'
“””””””many New Englanders would not have their urgent medical needs met,”””””””””
URGENT medical needs? No big deal. Go to Virginia and they will kill right to the last day.
People who think like this really need to just be gone.
Abortion is the #1 source of economic activity in the Gay State. Our Rat Party legislature,cheered on by our “Republican” Governor,will make sure they stay in business.
What will men do? Now they can have unprotected sex without regard for romance, commitment or long term financial obligations.
Well ... they always have the ecosystem to turn to ....
Sounds like good news, but I’m a bit skeptical. Could be — so to speak — a crooked going out of business sale.
