Planned Parenthood office shuts down in Southmost TX


The Planned Parenthood clinic at 5636 Southmost Road closed this month, causing its patients and their files to be transferred to the remaining clinic on Old Port Isabel Road.  Family planning funding for Planned Parenthood and other healthcare providers was cut by two-thirds this past state legislative session, which led to the closure of the Brownsville clinic, Yvonne Gutierrez said. She is vice president for public affairs for the Planned Parenthood Trust of South Texas. The state faced a massive deficit Legislators were tasked with balancing.
