A Texas abortion provider, which is run by a doctor who previously had a felony conviction for aggravated assault and a drug conviction, has lost more than $12.4 million, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees abortion providers, said in a statement that the Planned Parenthood Center for Reproductive Health in El Paso lost $1.3 million.
The agency said the facility had more than 6,700 providers in the United States, about one-third of the total.
The Texas-based organization’s clinic, which serves about 80,000 women, was founded in 1970.
The abortion provider was founded by Dr. Robert Wood, who had previously served a prison sentence for a cocaine possession conviction and was convicted of assaulting his wife and his two daughters, according to the CDC.
The clinic was closed in 2015, and the doctor’s license was revoked.
Planned Parenthood has struggled to find funding amid an onslaught of Republican attempts to defund the organization, which has received millions of dollars in federal funding.
The group is facing several lawsuits, including one from the pro-life group Americans United for Life.
