Planned Parenthood's Appleton clinic will remain closed

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin officials say they won't reopen its clinic in Appleton, one of three in the state, because they can't meet sufficient security standards.

The clinic suspended operations last year. Planned Parenthood officials said Monday that they reviewed security in the wake of an attack on a Colorado Springs clinic and decided they could not meet security standards.

They say the closure is a loss for women in the northern and central parts of the state.

Planned Parenthood will still offer abortion services at clinics in Madison and Milwaukee.
