A clinic in Colorado Springs that dispensed contraceptive pills to millions of women has closed.
The clinic, called the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood, has been shuttered since March, after the Center for Reproductive Rights sued the clinic over the decision to shut down its health center.
Planned Parenthood has said it will continue to offer contraceptive services to its women and their partners, but is not closing the facility.
The center is located at the intersection of Colorado Avenue and Wyoming Avenue.
The facility had about 4,400 patients, according to the clinic’s website.
The state of Colorado’s Office of Women’s Health and Development has been in charge of managing the facility since it opened in 2007.
According to the state, Planned Parenthood’s clinic was in the process of closing at the time of the suit, and the clinic was still accepting patients in the fall.
The Colorado Springs clinic closed after the lawsuit was filed, and a Planned Parenthood spokesperson told ABC News that the clinic would continue to accept new patients.
Planned Parity said the clinic had closed in response to the lawsuit.
In its lawsuit, Planned Parities attorney argued that the Colorado Planned Parenthood violated the state’s health and safety laws by denying women access to contraceptives and other reproductive health care services.
The clinics decision was made at the last minute, the lawsuit said.
Planned Women’s Action Fund filed the lawsuit on behalf of two Colorado Planned Planned Parenthood clinics, including the Colorado City and the Denver-based Colorado Springs.
In addition to the clinics, Planned Health also operates Planned Parenthood Health centers in the cities of Denver and Aurora, Colorado.
The lawsuit claims that the clinics’ closure is “an affront to women and families, a direct attack on women’s health, a violation of women’s rights, and an affront on the First Amendment.”
The clinics closure was announced on the day the first round of the 2016 midterm elections.
