Fi­nale is gain

Ed­i­tor: Praise the lord, the Wilkes-barre Planned Par­ent­hood fa­cil­ity will lose its prop­erty lease at the end of the year.

Al­though Planned Par­ent­hood pro­vides myr­iad health ser­vices, make no mis­take, abor­tions are where the money is and that’s what the or­ga­ni­za­tion wants to pur­sue. Na­tion­wide, in 2014, Planned Par­ent­hood re­ported that it per­formed 323,999 abor­tions.

If Planned Par­ent­hood in Wilkes Barre had not in­formed its land­lord that it in­tended to ex­plore of­fer­ing abor­tions and had lim­ited the fa­cil­ity to le­git­i­mate health ser­vices, I bet that the lease would have been re­newed.

I sug­gest — satir­i­cally — that if some­one wants an abor­tion, walk to Al­len­town to get one. By the time you get there you might change your mind. Women who de­lay abor­tions and talk to anti-abor­tion peo­ple many times let their ba­bies live. JOE DOMIANO OLD FORGE

Ed­i­tor’s note: Planned Par­ent­hood has re­ported that it will re­lo­cate in Jan­uary to 1101 N. Main St., Wilkes-barre.

Planned Par­ent­hood has an of­fice at the Kirby Health Cen­ter on North Franklin Street in Wilkes-barre. A writer ex­presses hap­pi­ness that the clinic’s land­lord will ter­mi­nate its lease at the end of the year. The of­fice will re­lo­cate in 2019.
