Let’s face it, finding out the results of a pregnancy test can be a nerve-wracking experience. Whether it’s expected or not so much, pregnancy is big news. So when you see or hear that infamous p-word for the first time (POSITIVE), you realize you have a decision to make.
If you live in or around Kirksville, MO, it’s important to know that there is no abortion clinic in Kirksville. Planned Parenthood of Kirksville closed after 38 years of service on November 14th, 2009. This occurred due to a decline in client interest and a shortage of nurse practitioners. The Kirksville location did not provide abortions, but did make abortion referrals and provided the morning after pill.
