One of many volunteers who took part in 40 Days for Life nationwide.

Iowa Right to Life learned on Saturday that two webcam abortion facilities will close.  As of June 18th the Planned Parenthood of the Heartland facilities in Red Oak and Creston will close their doors.  This follows news back in January that Planned Parenthood had laid off all but one employee at both centers.  In the past two years 12 Planned Parenthood facilities have closed in Iowa.

After June 18th, there will still be fifteen abortion clinics left in Iowa – fourteen operated by Planned Parenthood, as well as, the Emma Goldman clinic in Iowa City.

“We want to publicly thank the faithful Pro-Lifers who went out to the sidewalks in both Red Oak and Creston, in all kinds of weather, to offer women life-saving alternatives.  It’s in no small part due to their ongoing peaceful, prayerful presence these abortion facilities are shutting down,” Jenifer Bowen, executive director of Iowa Right to Life, said in a released statement.

There was an organized 40 Days for Life presence in Red Oak and Creston this spring that started on March 5th and ended on April 13th.
