SHAWANO, WI (WTAQ) - A Planned Parenthood clinic in Shawano has closed its doors.
It's the first of four Wisconsin clinics scheduled for closure after state funding cuts to Planned Parenthood. Other locations set for closure are in Chippewa Falls, Beaver Dam and Johnson Creek.
Planned Parenthood has said the clinics will close by July. Planned Parenthood says more than 2,000 patients will be affected by the statewide closures.
Officials add, the closures are the result of $1 million less in state tax support in the current state budget.
Seven other offices in Northeast Wisconsin remain open.
