Thu, 23 Jan 2014 14:50:30 GMT — An official says the Planned Parenthood clinic in Bettendorf will no longer perform surgical abortions but will continue with abortions induced by medication. Planned Parenthood President and CEO Jill June said in an email to the Quad-City Times that the clinic has made the service change to "better meet the needs of our patients." Planned Parenthood of the Heartland provides reproductive health care services to residents of Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma and is based in Des Moines. Iowa Right to Life executive director Jenifer Bowen says members of her organization learned in November that surgical abortions might be ended at the Bettendorf facility.
