Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic to reopen next week
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The Planned Parenthood clinic where three people were killed in November will reopen next week even though repairs aren’t finished yet.
The Colorado Springs clinic will offer a full range of sexual and reproductive health services when it opens its doors Feb. 15 but only in part of the building so construction work can continue in the rest of it.
The number of patients the clinic can treat will be limited for a few months but the president of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, Vicki Cowart, said Monday that the organization wanted to follow through on its promise to reopen as soon as possible. She also said there would be “robust security.”
Robert Dear has acknowledged attacking the clinic on Nov. 27 because abortions are performed there.
