Planned Parenthood will continue its presence in the state through the Wyoming Abortion Fund, which connects women to abortionists.
"This is a challenging decision", said Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains official Adrienne Mansanares".
Planned Parenthood of IN and Kentucky filed a lawsuit Thursday against new legislation that would change the process of a minor getting an abortion.
That's the fundamental point of legislation like this: to close clinics, to end safe abortion access, and to leave marginalized women-mainly women of color, immigrant women, young women, and low-income women-with no health care.
U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, issued a statement Thursday lamenting the closures in his southeast Iowa district as leading to "a loss of quality health care options for women and men across the state".
Local affiliate Planned Parenthood of the Heartland said the closings will hurt access to reproductive health care in Iowa, especially in rural areas.
Health centers in Burlington, Keokuk and Sioux City will close on June 30 and one in Quad Cities soon after as a result of losing $2 million in funds under the new measure, said Susan Allen, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of the Heartland.

The Casper, Wyoming, facility had been open for over 40 years and used as a referral service, directing over 500 women every year to three "health centers" in the state willing to perform abortions - more proof that PP isn't needed.
The new state family planning program will cost the state about $3 million; the previous setup with the federal government allowed Iowa to pay about $300,000 through a 90 percent to 10 percent match.
But some health care providers in Iowa are expressing doubt that they can serve as a proper alternative, if Planned Parenthood isn't there.
The closings will reduce the number of Planned Parenthood facilities in Iowa that provide abortions from eight to five. We have been in Iowa for 83 years, and we are not going anywhere.
According to Phillips, the Wyoming Planned Parenthood Clinic did not receive state funding and was mostly supported through donations and grants. They're hoping to offer abortion services there by this summer and are preparing to submit related applications to the state for the Joplin and Springfield sites.
