Planned Parenthood will close its Scranton medical center Dec. 1 in what the organization described as a strategic decision to consolidate health services.
The center has been the target of anti-abortion protests. A protest in August
2015 drew more than 100 people who called for Planned Parenthood’s defunding, including Bishop Joseph C. Bambera of the Diocese of Scranton.
In a statement released Wednesday by the diocese, Bishop Bambera said the church teaches “that all life is a gift from God and is sacred.”
“As such, it is our fervent hope and prayer that any organization that provides health services does so only in ways that support and respect life at all stages, from conception to natural death,” he said.
