The closing of the Grand Chute site came due to costs to update security. Several news outlets quoted Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin’s chief operating officer Chris Williams as saying that security upgrades to the Appleton site would cost an estimated $300,000, twice the value of the site.
In 2014, “Appleton North Health Clinic” performed almost 600 abortions.
“The closure of the Planned Parenthood clinic in Grand Chute is a clear indication that God is hearing our prayers,” Bishop David Ricken told The Compass on Aug. 23.
He noted that the closure happened Aug. 22, the memorial of the Queenship of Mary, adding that this is “the title (Mary) gave when appearing in Champion,” where the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is located.
God has answered the Queen of Heaven's prayers & the last abortion facility in the @GreenBayDiocese is now closed! https://t.co/7qkjjto4f7— Bishop David Ricken (@BpDavidRicken) August 24, 2016
