NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Challenges to plans for a new Planned Parenthood site that performs abortions in New Orleans fail to keep the project from moving forward.
Construction crews poured concrete Tuesday to lay a foundation for a new location on South Claiborne Avenue.
The state health department rejected Planned Parenthood's application to perform abortion services, saying the organization did not show the need for another facility.
Planned Parenthood is appealing the decision.
The Planned Parenthood site is expected to open later this year.
