Pennsylvania closes Planned Parenthood facility, 8th ‘abortion clinic’ since 2012, unlicensed Dr Steven Brigham shut down again

Another Planned Parenthood facility has closed in Pennsylvania, this time in Collegeville.

Abortion Dr. Kermit Gosnell's trial has resulted in the closing of several Pennsylvania facilities which performed abortions

Abortion Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s trial has resulted in the closing of several Pennsylvania facilities which performed abortions

Five abortion clinics closed as a direct result of the new state policy mandating regular inspections and conditions in abortion clinics following the horrific uncovering of the West Philadelphia abortion clinic and the now-convicted-murderer Kermit Gosnell. See the full list below.

The Collegeville facility was closed effective October 30, 2013 and the Carlisle Health Center – closed on June 17, 2013. The now two Planned Parenthood PA closings were “feeder” clinics – a conduit to Planned Parenthood abortion facilities.

Integrity Family Health in Philadelphia, run by abortion doctor Steven Brigham was ordered to close last November.

Brigham does not have a state medical license after he was banned in 2010 from operating or controlling any abortion clinics in that state due to violations that endangered the public.

The five closed due to legislative fallout from the Gosnell trial: Those closed clinics were Allentown Medical Services (formerly run by Steven Brigham), American Women’s Services, UPMC Magee, Allegheny Women’s Center – Pittsburgh and University of Pittsburgh Physicians.

Correction: The original title insinuate 8 Planned Parenthood facilities have been closed, but the correct number is 2, bringing the total to 8 total clinics performing abortions.
