Columbia Health Center Services
Statement from Peter B. Brownlie, President & CEO
Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri

 

 

Columbia, MO - Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri (PPKM) is committed to providing a full range of safe, accessible and affordable quality reproductive health care to women, men and young people at our Columbia Health Center. These services include well women exams, STI testing and treatment, life-saving cancer screenings, birth control, and abortion services. 

Due to the lack of physician coverage and availability, effective July 1, 2012, Planned Parenthood is temporarily suspending abortion services in Columbia.  We regret the unfortunate impact for central Missouri women who want and need access to abortion; we are committed to resuming these services as soon as possible.  Until that time, we will offer referrals for abortion services to other health centers in Kansas and Missouri.

Planned Parenthood will continue to meet the reproductive health care needs of its mid-Missouri clients by maintaining regular access to our high-quality family planning services.  To ensure women and families have continued access to quality reproductive health care, our routine family planning schedule will remain the same at the Columbia Health Center.
