Planned Parenthood Office in Stroudsburg to Close

STROUDSBURG -- Planned Parenthood says its Stroudsburg Medical Center will close.

The non-profit organization provides health care to women and teenagers.

According to officials, closing the location on North 7th Street will allow them to expand services and extend hours at other locations.

In a statement, officials said: "This decision was not made lightly. It resulted from careful analysis of where our patients live and seek medical care as well as an assessment of how best to ensure the longevity and strength of existing health centers, in order to offer the highest level of patient care for years to come."

They did not say when the center in Stroudsburg will close.

    I suggest they should relocate to Frackville. Cut down on the population of street roamers there

    I found it so interesting that the same rabid anti-abortion people here are the same ones to express such cruel and racist comments about everyone (and especially people of color). You have so much love and concern for the fetus, yet the second it is born you have only hatred and disdain. That’s a lot of disconnect.

    Planned Parenthood is mostly sells abortion. While a woman can get contraception, most of what PP does for women is referrals. Tax dollars should not be given to corporations that kill children.

    Pregnancy is not a disease. Abortion is not health care.

    There’s simply no discussing this, rationally. Planned Parenthood has/had a greater role in pregnancy prevention than abortion. It is the middle-income women/girls that find all types of birth control available through Planned Parenthood, at no cost. It is NOT the low-income demographic that seeks out this service.

      Planned Parenthood admits to selling about 300,000 abortions each year. It is their main source of income, bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars (not to mention the income from selling baby body parts). it is an evil organization and needs to be closed down for killing children.

    This is good news. Most Planned Parenthood locations sell abortion and do not actually offer much health care to women. Beyond selling contraception they mostly do referrals to health care providers for real health care.

    Pregnancy is not a disease and abortion is not health care.

    They should rename and call themselves planned abortion, and continue to sell aborted fetus tissue. Founded by a known racist to exterminate minorities. Sad logic of the liberals.

    I wish people would READ THE ARTICLE and comprehend what it said. They are NOT BEING FORCED TO CLOSE. The closing is due to PP CORPORATE reasons due to staffing problems, to save money and better serve their clients–NOT political reasons. I quote,”According to officials, closing the location on North 7th Street will allow them to expand services and extend hours at other locations. In a statement, officials said: ‘This decision was not made lightly. It resulted from careful analysis of where our patients live and seek medical care as well as an assessment of how best to ensure the longevity and strength of existing health centers, in order to offer the highest level of patient care for years to come.'” PP made the decision in it’s own and it’s client’s best interest.

  • Are you for real?

    Less than 1% is funded for abortions. The rest goes for prenatal care breast cancer screening and other medical services. I don’t agree that government funding to pay for abortions. But the rest was necessary.

      Lol please, let me know which locations offer anything but abortion or contraceptives. They get away with saying they offer those type of services because people are too lazy to look into it themselves and find out they don’t.

    • Reason

      As opposed to Trump who prefers they die AFTER they’re born from lack of access to health care, affordable housing, education, clean air, food, water etc

      • LOGIC

        You mean like Charlie Gard? Oh, wait…
        Look into PP financials: they DO NOT NEED gov’t money to operate.

    • Boy Bye

      Yes— it is much better for an 18 year old to have the child secretly in their home and then bury the poor thing in the back yard. Get over yourself.

      • Are you for real?!

        Well then, if you don’t want to get pregnant, then you shouldn’t be having sex or at the very least use a condom. Its way better tan killing an innocent unborn baby. Every baby aborted IS murder whether you believe it or not. They have a heart beat. Its sad that that is the way people handle it. Like I said if you don’t want to get pregnant, don’t have sex or use a condom, plain and simple!!

      • Boy Bye

        Unfortunately mistakes happen even if you are extremely careful. This idea that everyone is perfect and immune to becoming pregnant is outrageous. If abortions are outlawed we are going to see an increase in mothers taking these extreme actions bc they have no where to turn. I would certainly rather my daughter have somewhere to go–and definitely somewhere your daughter can go if god forbid she ever needed guidance. But she’s probably perfect so you don’t have to worry.

      • Gimme a break!

        Well boy bye, babies are certainly not mistakes for one, they are a gift from God. I never said that I was perfect neither did I say my daughter is perfect. It is our job as parents to teach our children not to be having sex before marriage. My oldest daughter knows and when my younger children are old enough to know they will know why it is wrong. Also, it is our jobs as parents to make sure our children know why abortion is wrong. If you think a ” mistake” as you say will come out of having sex, then don’t do it at all. Plain and simple.

      • No

        Some people don’t have the luxury of parents to run to. Planned parenthood is all they have to make informed safe decisions. And yes unfortunately sometimes the best option is the most difficult decision of the mothers life.
