NJ family planning clinic closed after cutbacks
CHERRY HILL, N.J. - September 22, 2010 -- Cuts in state funding have led Planned Parenthood of Southern New Jersey to close a family planning clinic in Cherry Hill.
The decision came a day after Democrats in the New Jersey Senate on Monday failed to override Gov. Chris Christie's veto of a bill that would have provided $7.5 million for 58 clinics around the state.
Christie said the state didn't have the money.
Planned Parenthood of Southern New Jersey CEO Lynn Brown told The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill that meant a loss of about $160,000 to the organization.
The organization provides reproductive health services, including Pap smears, vasectomies and prenatal care at four other clinics.
