Hawaii Planned Parenthood Abortion Facility Loses Lease, Must Close

By Cheryl Sullenger

Kailua Kona, HI – Planned Parenthood’s Kona Health Center in Kailua Kona, Hawaii, will shut down after Monday, November 10, 2014, because it has lost its lease at its current location.

A media release issued by Planned Parenthood of Hawaii yesterday indicated that the closure was only temporary until another location can be secured.

However, commercial property management companies are often reluctant to lease to abortion businesses, so relocation is never assured.

“The fact that Planned Parenthood is shutting down an abortion facility with no place to go shows that it is very likely having trouble finding a new location,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We pray that no one in Hawaii will lease to them and that this closure will be permanent.”

After Monday, Hawaii will have only two remaining abortion facilities in Maui and Honolulu. Both are operated by Planned Parenthood. The closure will make Hawaii’s Big Island abortion-free.

The national trend of abortion clinic closures continues, with only 571 surgical abortion facilities left in the U.S. once the Kona office ceases operations.

Several clinics, including nine in Texas and one in Oklahoma, are open only pending the resolution of court cases. Seven abortion facilities in New Jersey face closure after their owner, Steven Brigham, lost his medical license last month. Another Planned Parenthood in Cincinnati faces closure for failing to comply with clinic licensing requirements.

“Abortion clinics continue to close and we expect more to shut down before the end of the year,” said Newman. “When abortion clinics close, it gives women an opportunity to explore other options and we have found that clinic closures invariably result in reduced abortion numbers and that means precious lives are saved!”

    Innocent blood has been crying out to God for far too long under the word choice. May abortion clinics continue to close as they do not tell women the truth when it comes to abortion and the link to breast cancer. Wanta cure breast cancer. . .STOP ABORTIONS!

    I’m amazed but then again I’m not at progress God fearing prolife people have made in this horrible horrible abortion holocaust.lets just keep going ! I was at a point that I thought to myself ,Is this making a difference but as I look back even in a pro death political climate I’m blown away ! Can you imagine now with this historical win what will be now. Thank you all people who value life at the moment of conception .God bless


    Lets talk about murder, because that is what it is. I think about my grandchildren when I hear abortions. My god people think about a baby being murdered because you could not control your desires. I can not see god saying go have fun and don’t worry about it someone will be responsible for it. If that is what you think should happen remember you have to answer to god someday. after all children are a gift from god ., and he does not just give them out like candy.

    what is frustrating is that when we do pass regulations regarding clinics they still remain open because some officials refuse to enforce laws or some judge(s) refuse too allow those laws to go into effect or somehow they find a way to keep them in operation
