The Journal Gazette

The following was released on Monday July 9, 2018, by Indiana Right to Life:

INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter and Allen County Right to Life Executive Director Cathie Humbarger issued this joint statement today upon learning that Indiana's largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, is closing in Fort Wayne: 

"We are pleased to see Indiana's largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood,  is closing its doors in Fort Wayne.  We believe Planned Parenthood's closure is due to its dwindling customer base in Indiana and its unpopularity in the greater Fort Wayne community.  Planned Parenthood's accusation that intimidation by Right to Life led to this closure is simply untrue and smacks of an attempt by Planned Parenthood to turn its business woes into a fundraiser."  

According to Planned Parenthood's own reports, unduplicated patient visits are down 46% over the last 10 years while total patient visits are down 67% over the same time period.
