Planned Parenthood’s Southern Arizona Regional Health Center on N. Wyatt Drive in Tucson, Arizona, has quietly “closed until further notice.” There has been no public announcement to date, but those fighting against Planned Parenthood in Tucson have confirmed it is not open.

This facility committed both surgical and pill abortions. 

American Life League has 19 Marian Blue Wave prayer partners in the southern Arizona area, with 12 of them located in Tucson itself. There are 28 additional prayer partners in areas north of Tucson (most located around Phoenix). All these 47 individuals (see map) and their families/churches are praying a Rosary a week for the closure of all Planned Parenthood facilities across the country.

We offer congratulations to all our over 4,000 prayer partners world-wide and ask that you pray, along with local Fighters Against Planned Parenthood in Tucson, thanking God for this temporary closure and asking that the facility not reopen. We understand local people will be praying at the Planned Parenthood facility this Friday, July 23, between 9:00 and 10:00 AM.

STOPP reported in our annual Planned Parenthood Facilities Report, that Planned Parenthood reported a total of 19 centers that “temporarily closed” during the 2020 calendar year. Of those centers, only two have reopened. The rest continue to remain closed—most for over a year. 

Although Planned Parenthood in 2021 has opened two new centers in California and permanently closed one in the state of Washington, this is the first new temporary closure reported this year.
