40 Days for Life Wins in SF: Golden Gate Community Health Closing

"Golden Gate Community Health Center" is the name Planned Parenthood Golden Gate adopted as it tried to emerge from financial scandal.

From the Bay Citizen online newspaper:

"Golden Gate Community Health, the embattled former Planned Parenthood affiliate based in San Francisco, will close this week, The Bay Citizen has learned.

Several employees posted the news on Facebook Monday night. According to a former employee with ties to the organization, staff members were notified of the clinic’s closure and layoffs about 4:30 p.m. Monday. All the remaining appointments will be routed to the main clinic in San Francisco, which will remain open for about two more weeks, the former employee said.
The other clinics, including locations in San Rafael, Oakland, Hayward and San Mateo, will close by the end of the week. The organization’s Rohnert Park location was closed in October."

Pro-life San Franciscans had been holding the "40 Days for Life" vigil across the street from the organization's Eddy Street location for the past two years. The picture below is from March 6, 2009, where an ambulance roared up, sirens screaming, and a poor lady had to be wheeled out on a gurney.
