Memo to Newly Openned DBQ Planned Parenthood "You're No Good!"

Before I get into the gist of this post, I have to admit that I chose that title for a good reason. This afternoon as I was driving by the new site & praying, the radio station I had on started playing a Linda Rhonstadt song. Appropriately enough, the song was "You're No Good". While the verses would need some work, the refrain would need to change just 1 word, "baby" to "Planned Parenthood":
"You're no good
You're no good
You're no good
Planned Parenthood, you're no good

I'm gonna say it again
You're no good
You're no good
You're no good
Planned Parenthood, you're no good
"*
That haveing been said, there were 2 articles today about their openning. 1 was in the TH, the other on the KWWL-TV website. I will share the 2 articles & then add some comments.
1st the TH article:

Planned Parenthood touts 'easy-to-locate site' BY MARY NEVANS-PEDERSON TH STAFF WRITER *MNPEDERSON@WCINET.COM Telegraph Herald | 0 comments
As soon as Planned Parenthood opened its new Dubuque health center, protesters were there, promising a constant presence.
Planned Parenthood of the Heartland opened the new center Wednesday in a modern brick building surrounded by day lilies and rose bushes at 3365 Hillcrest Road. The organization operated in an older, smaller structure at 1766 Central Ave. since August 2008.
Picketers from Dubuque County Right to Life Inc. were on hand for the first day of business at Planned Parenthood's new site. Legally, they must picket much farther from the new building than from the previous site. Protesters must stay on the public sidewalk that is separated from the new building by an expansive lawn. Two large parking lots are adjacent to the building away from the sidewalk and the picketers.
Jill June, president and chief executive officer of the agency, said that the new site is a better fit.
"We were looking for an easy-to-locate site, a location with a robust buffer from the people who are opposed to women choosing their own health care options and a larger facility where we can offer state-of-the art medical care," June said. "At our previous site, we had people trespassing and harassing our staff and clients."
Sara Brehm was one of the local protesters holding signs and waving to traffic on the sidewalk along Hillcrest Road on Wednesday.
"This is our first day here, but we will be here all the time from now on," said Brehm, a member of the Dubuque County Right to Life board of directors.
David Leifker said there had been a number of right-to-life picketers on the sidewalk in front of the center throughout the day. He held a sign that read, "Adoption: the Loving Option."
The new health center has more and better medical and laboratory equipment and facilities as well as a more "patient-friendly design," June said. With more room, Planned Parenthood can offer additional health care services she said, in addition to its standard offerings such as birth control and pregnancy and disease testing. June did not rule out the possibility that Dubuque's Planned Parenthood center could offer abortion services in the future.
"At this point in time, the Dubuque health center does not provide abortions, but we won't say we never will," June said. "What services we offer will be determined by the requests we receive from the men and women who come to us for health care, not by Dubuque County Right to Life."
Planned Parenthood of the Heartland operates 31 health centers in four states, June said. Last year, Dubuque's center recorded 1,000 patient visits.



Next the KWWL article:


Planned Parenthood moves into new Dubuque location

Posted: Jun 13, 2012 6:56 PM CDT

Protestors stood outside Dubuque's new Planned Parenthood location Wednesday

Protestors stood outside Dubuque's new Planned Parenthood location Wednesday
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -
Planned Parenthood of the Heartland is now in its new and upgraded Dubuque location.
On Wednesday, demonstrators stood outside the newly-renovated building at 3365 Hillcrest Road. They were protesting abortions, which Planned Parenthood of the Heartland CEO Jill June said makes up just two percent of the organization's services.
June said the new location offers patients more privacy. At the old location on Central Avenue in Dubuque, patients had to walk through the protestors to enter the facility.
Bill Frye has been protesting Dubuque's Planned Parenthood location for several years now and was at the new location Wednesday.
"They want to make sure their clients can come right in without, you know, our people handing them some literature or, you know, encouraging them that there's other places and other alternatives," Frye said.
In a phone interview Wednesday from Des Moines, June said the new location sets the protestors far back from the main entrance.
"They will have very, very little effect on our services and our patients because of the way in which the new facility is designed and operated," she said.
The former Dubuque location on Central is permanently closed.
June said the new location has the ability to provide telemedicine, which can include abortion services if a patient requests the service.



I noticed several interesting things in the articles.


a) June said. "At our previous site, we had people trespassing and harassing our staff and clients."
I guess if you consider the public sidewalk in front of your place your own private domain, as they do, then you could call it tresspassing. But since it is a public sidewalk, there was NO tresspassing. As for harrassing, in their opinion our just being there is defined as harrassing. Saying "hi" by us is harrassing, handing someone a brochure or just explaining why we are there is harrassing. But for them it was OK for someone to get in our face & yell at us etc, like happenned to me a couple times. & how about those people that swore at us, made obscene gestures & threw things like potato chips at some of us? I guess that it is only harrassing if you stand up & tell the truth about Planned Parenthood. But if you attack us, then they have no qualms.
b) In the TH article we read "At this point in time, the Dubuque health center does not provide abortions, but we won't say we never will," June said.
Compare this to what June said in the KWWL story:
"June said the new location has the ability to provide telemedicine, which can include abortion services if a patient requests the service."
Wait a minute, I thought June said the DBQ site doesn't currently provide abortions! It sounds to me like they are now providing them, specifically telemed abortions. If they weren't already available, then how could a women be provided the service like June said to KWWL?
c) center recorded 1,000 patient visits.
That comes to 19.2 a week. & given the tricks they use to inflate their numbers, it may really be smaller. Where is this huge need they claim, expecially for an expanded facility that June was bragging about???? More proof that abortion IS in the works so they can actually make money as I suspect they are losing money now.
To give you an idea of what this really means, I would remind you of what Planned Parenthood said when it openned on Central in 2008. They were a part of East Central Iowa Planned Parenthood at the time which since merged with PP Heartland. At the time they said there was a need for their services & they were open 40 hours a week. Before the old site closed, they were down to 17 hours over 3 days. (Don't know what the new site's hours are yet.) That alone showed how little need there really was. But let's expand that to do the math.  In 2010 DBQ's population was 57,637 & DBQ County's population was 93,653. The Tri-state area also includes SW Wisconson & NW Illinois. Jo Davies County in Illinois has a population of 22,678 & Grant County in Wisconsin has a population of 49,597 (including Platteville which has UWP located there.) That means the 1000 clients would only be 1.7% of the DBQ city population. But when you expand it to the 3 counties that they are supposedly serving. It gets worse. The 3 county population comes to 165,928.  That means they served only .6% of the population. Again, where is the huge need they claim is there, even without the newly expanded "state-of-the art medical care"?
d) "They will have very, very little effect on our services and our patients because of the way in which the new facility is designed and operated," she said."
June is ingnoring several facts here, including the power of prayer. Also, she makes it sound like the designof the site was their idea rather than telling the truth that the building & parking lot was that way because of who originally built it.
& she also knows that at other sites with a similar set up, some people will stop for the liturature & talk to us.
It should be no surprize that June is using lies & half truths. Nor should it be any surprize that the media isn't raising the obvious questions.
What is true is that we will continue to be a visible, prayful presence in front of the new location until they are closed forever.
