Bad News for DBQ, Planned Parenthood Buys Building, Expanding Services

***For Immediate Release***
New Health Center Opening in Dubuque

August 30th, 2011 (DES MOINES, IA) – Planned Parenthood of the Heartland is happy to announce plans to open a new health center in Dubuque, Iowa.
The new facility will replace the current health center in Dubuque. It will be located at 3365 Hillcrest Road.
The new center will continue to provide all the reproductive health services we currently offer including cancer screenings, annual exams, birth control, STI testing and treatment, and more.
“The new upgraded facility will allow us to better serve more patients in the Dubuque area,” says Planned Parenthood of the Heartland Board Member, Jason Lehman.
“We are renovating the new space to the specific needs of our patients and staff. With private access and additional space, the new health center will better accommodate the women, men and families who rely on us for quality care.”
Closing on the new building was completed today. Completion of renovations has not been determined. No definitive move date has been set.

What PPH fails to mention is what the more is, abortions. The odds are they are going to be telemed abortions since that is PPH's big thing these days.

Steve Brody executive director of DBQ Co Right to Life issued the following statement:
“Planned Parenthood has been seeking to escape from their downtown location for quite some time, in an effort to get away from our successfully peaceful and prayerful protest. The lack of customers and their reduction in hours forced them to either leave Dubuque altogether or find a new location that might offer cover for their customers. This follows an historical pattern for Planned Parenthood when they have been in a location for three years.”

“Today’s announcement from Planned Parenthood should prove to the entire tri-state community that our predictions back in 2008 were correct. Back then, we warned that an abortion pipeline would be introduced into Dubuque, and that Planned Parenthood would give mothers RU-486 to have their abortions at home. Let there be no doubt that RU-486 abortions via webcam will be in Dubuque and the number of miscarriages in town will increase, not to mention the emergency room visits.”

“It is eerie that just like in 2008, this announcement comes on a dark and dreary day in Dubuque. Nonetheless, our protest campaign will continue outside this new location, as will our education and information efforts. Our unborn children deserve protection, as do the citizens of Dubuque and the entire tri-state community.”

Steve is exactly right. This is not good for the health of women in DBQ. But it is good for those who wish to cover up rape & incest of minors because they now no longer have to leave town to do so.

As Steve pointed out, last Spring PP cut back from 40 to 17 hrs here in DBQ. So when the new location opens, will they go back to 40 hrs again? That remains to be seen.

The new location was the former location of a DuTrac Commuity Credit Union branch. It is a stand alone building with a parking lot. There is a sidewalk where we will be able to continue protesting. But it will be harder to counsel or pass out material as people can just drive by.

The location does raise a question in my mind about what the building is zoned for. & does that zoning allow for what PPH will do there, esp the abortions? I have passed to word on & it will be interesting to find out. If it is not zoned for what PPH wants to do, then you can be sure that the Pro-lifers in DBQ will make sure that there will have to be a public hearing at the zoning board. & that will enable us to speak out at bothe the commission meeting as well as the city council meeting.

Father Parker talked about this in his homilt this evening @ St. Mary's E DBQ. He reminded us that the force behind PP is demonic. More than ever we need to keep up teh spiritual warfare against thsi evil. Please pray that PPH's plans to expand in DBQ will be thwarted.
