Planned Parenthood closes office


#1

LIHUE – After two years of service, Planned Parenthood of Hawaii officials said Tuesday the organization is halting walk-in office services on Kauai.

Officials didn’t specify why it was closing the office off Rice Street that had been open only on Fridays, but said it will expand its educational outreach on the island while the office is closed.

“We’ve determined that our time and resources are best spent in the community providing Kauai’s families and youth with the education, information and skills they need to keep themselves safe, healthy and strong,” Andrea Anderson, Planned Parenthood of Hawaii president and CEO, said in a press release. “We continue to fine tune our business model and remain confident that our Kauai health center will reopen in the near future.”

From the news article:
Since it opened two years ago, more than 500 individuals received affordable, confidential sexual and reproductive health care services at the walk-in health center, including pregnancy testing, contraception, emergency contraception, sexually transmitted infection testing, HIV testing and counseling, according to the press release.

So they were open 1 day/week, for two years (or 104 weeks.) They helped 500 individuals, so about five people per day. This doesn’t sound very economical. In the absence of government contracts as a form of subsidy, no wonder they shut down.

In other words, they’re going to go out and “educate” people about having more risky sex so that they can get clientelle to service.

I think Kauai would be better off if they didn’t reopen. Women need real doctors, not PP.
