TV Station: Peoria abortion clinic to close
PEORIA — Whole Woman’s Health clinic in Peoria will be closing it’s doors, a local TV station reported Wednesday.
WEEK-TV confirmed that the clinic, which provides abortion services, is closing, but with no firm date.
The TV station received this statement from clinic president and CEO Amy Hagstrom:
“For four years, Whole Woman’s Health has been honored to provide compassionate abortion care to Peoria, Illinois, and the surrounding rural communities, where abortion is traditionally unavailable yet desperately needed. Whole Woman’s Health is committed to doing all that we can to serve the communities we are in, but unfortunately, it is no longer sustainable to keep our doors open in Peoria. We thank the residents of Peoria and central Illinois for welcoming us and trusting us to serve their community with safe, compassionate abortion care.”
WEEK-TV said that they couldn’t get any information if the clinic in Bloomington-Normal would close or a timeline for the Peoria clinic.
