JUNEAU - A new Planned Parenthood facility opened Feb. 12, allowing Juneau women, for the first time in more than a decade, to get abortions without flying to Seattle, Sitka or Anchorage. Workers at the clinic near Twin Lakes said they'd been well-received, with walk-in clients showing up before the clinic even opened. But abortion opponents picketed outside the day before the clinic opened. The nonprofit Planned Parenthood's most controversial service is abortion, with or without surgery. But the clinic also provides family planning, women's annual exams, contraception, testing and cures for sexually transmitted infections.
