The Planned Parenthood Association of Bucks County, PA announced it will offer abortions at its Warminster Township Clinic early next year. The clinic will be only health care facility in the county to offer abortions, and the move will increase women’s access to health care by eliminating area-women’s need to cross county lines for services.
Linda Hahn, Bucks County Planned Parenthood’s Executive Director, said access has been a problem for women seeking abortions in the area. “We had to refer all of our patients outside the county,” she said. “It was a hardship for patients who sought these services.” Anti-abortion protestors have already said they plan to picket the clinic.
