MADISON — Planned Parenthood says it is closing four of its 27 locations in Wisconsin due to a lack of state funding.

The group announced Monday that facilities in Beaver Dam, Johnson Creek, Chippewa Falls and Shawano will close between April and July.

Planned Parenthood says the closures are the direct consequence of the Legislature eliminated $1 million in state funding for the group in the last budget.

Planned Parenthood says the closures will mean affect services provided to 2,000 patients.

    Divide $1,000,000 taxpayer money into 2,000 that benefit and you have your answer on how government doesn't work!

    Four down, 23 to go. There is no justification for public funds being used for an abortion agenda. Next is NPR.
