Planned Parenthood is closing a pair of clinics in Colorado, explaining it is short of money because of the millions of dollars it had to spend to convince voters not to approve so-called “personhood” amendments.
Pro-life groups twice have tried to pass amendments to the Colorado state constitution declaring the unborn child to be a human being. They’ve were beaten back each time by the 10-1 spending of abortion supporters.
Victory has its price, however, for Planned Parenthood.
Monica McCafferty, a spokeswoman with Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, recently told the Colorado Springs Independent that as a result of expenditures from fighting the personhood campaigns, mostly in September, the organization was forced to close a pair of abortion businesses in La Junta and eastern Colorado Springs.
