KIRKSVILLE, MO. — Planned Parenthood in Kirksville will be closing for good on November 14th.
The health center, specialized in treating low-income women, has been in Kirksville for 38 years.
Officials say they’re closing because of fewer clients and a shortage of rural nurse practitioners.
Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider. Even those clinics which do not perform abortions, like the one in Kirksville, make abortion referrals and distribute the morning after pill, which can act as an abortifacient.
