Indiana Planned Parenthood Clinics To Review Security After Colorado Shooting

Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky

Security measures are being reviewed at Planned Parenthood clinics in Indiana following the fatal shooting at a Colorado clinic last week.

The Planned Parenthood office in downtown Indianapolis says it’s seen an increase in threats after an anti-abortion group released videos – later determined to be heavily edited -- purporting to show evidence of the sale of fetal tissue.

Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky says it has been in touch with local police and the FBI.

CEO Betty Cockrum says, “Certainly, when an incident like this happens, which is really, truly alarming, we dust it all off and we revisit and we retrain.”

Cockrum says security is already a huge part of their operation, but they are reviewing security measures.

“Just [to] make sure that everything conceivably that offers safety and minimizes risk is in place and functional,” Cockrum says.

Despite the recent shooting and the increase in threats, Planned Parenthood says all of its clinics have been open their regular hours and will stay open.
