Planned Parenthood Moving to New Facility in Fayetteville

planned

Planned Parenthood will move its Fayetteville Health Center to a new building later this summer after reportedly having its lease terminated by a landlord for its current location on Crossover Road.

The lease was terminated by Paradise Point LLC, which owns the complex at 3279 N. Crossover Road.

A spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood Great Plains told a local reporter on Friday that its Fayetteville location will remain open as it searches for a new home.

Planned Parenthood has not yet provided an address for a new Northwest Arkansas location or a timeline for the move.

The Family Council, a Little Rock-based religious lobbying group, tweeted earlier this week that the clinic has lost its lease. The tweet included a link to a blog post by leader Jerry Cox that said the landlord’s decision to terminate the lease came on the heels the spring 40 Days for Life campaign in Fayetteville, during which pro-life Arkansans prayed daily outside the Northwest Arkansas abortion clinic.

Established in 1935, Planned Parenthood Great Plains reportedly serves more than 75,000 women annually through 11 health centers in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.

The Fayetteville location is one of two health centers Planned Parenthood operates in Arkansas. The other is in Little Rock.

The clinics provide medication abortions and offer a range of health services, including STD testing, breast cancer screenings and annual exams.
