ACLU Concerns Over Family Planning Clinics Closing

The ACLU of South Dakota is raising concerns over the recent closing of family planning clinics. Three Family Planning programs at clinics in Mobridge, Lemmon and Burke were closed down by the South Dakota Department of Health a month ago. ACLU of South Dakota Advocacy Manager Samantha Chapman says the closure created a desert for people needing reproductive health care. It’s forced some to travel up to 100 miles to receive low-cost care. Chapman added the consequences of eliminating affordable access to reproductive healthcare will be more unplanned pregnancies and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.
