Planned Parenthood Suspends Abortions in Nashville Indefinitely by Dr Susan Berry – Breitbart
TDC Note – Strike up a victory for the good people of Nashville. The few remain seem to be very vocal and outspoken. Maybe we need to start passing out Yellow Vest so we can identify our brothers / sisters-in-arms!!
Planned Parenthood has suspended abortions indefinitely in its Nashville, Tennessee, facility due to a lack of abortionists.
“At this time, abortion services have been halted and we’re undergoing a period of quality improvement,” said Tereva Parham, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of Tennessee and North Mississippi.
The halt on abortions at the Planned Parenthood facility means no abortions are currently offered in the city. The clinic was the largest provider of abortions in the state. Women from Middle Tennessee counties and neighboring Alabama, Kentucky and Mississippi sought abortions in the Nashville facility.
According to a report by the Associated Press, Parham said she did not know when abortions would resume in Nashville and that the reason for the halt was a lack of abortionists.
In September, the Women’s Center – the other facility that performed abortions in Nashville – closed down.
The Tennessean reports the state now has six abortion providers, a significant drop from 16 in 2000, but still more than its neighboring states, with the exception of North Carolina.
Planned Parenthood representatives are referring women seeking abortions at the Nashville facility to clinics in Knoxville and Memphis. Tennessee’s 48-hour waiting period law requires women to obtain counseling two days prior to an abortion.
Diana Meinweiser at the pro-life Tennessee Right to Life told News 2 her organization has been much busier than usual, fielding calls from women looking for other options to abortion.
