County board votes to evict Deliberate Parenthood well being clinic

55


MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. — A county board in western Michigan has voted to evict a Deliberate Parenthood well being clinic from the county’s Division of Public Well being constructing.

The 6-2 vote Tuesday by the Muskegon County Board of Commissioners got here after a contentious hours-long assembly.

County officers say the well being division wants the presently leased house for immunizations and different companies. Deliberate Parenthood has 90 days to go away. Deliberate Parenthood’s clinic gives common well being companies, doctor referrals, contraception, being pregnant testing, emergency contraceptives and HIV/STD testing.

The clinic doesn’t carry out abortions, however some argued abortion was a key difficulty within the debate since Deliberate Parenthood affords abortion companies elsewhere.

Jim Norton, a vice chairman of growth for Deliberate Parenthood, stated: “We ought to be speaking about increasing well being care companies to the neighborhood, not shrinking them.”
