WLOS: Planned Parenthood facility opens in Asheville

From WLOS, channel 13

A new, $2.9 million dollar Planned Parenthood facility is now open in Asheville.

Planned Parenthood Asheville Health Center opened its doors south of downtown Friday. It is on McDowell Street and replaces the smaller offices on Biltmore Avenue.

The facility won’t be performing abortions until March as construction isn’t completely finished but patients still got the chance to visit.

There have been no abortion providers in Western North Carolina since last summer when FemCare closed down.
