(Oh, Mistress of Tortured Metaphors, have you no shame?) Planned Parenthood does not perform abortions in Oklahoma, but it does in other states. In the Sooner State, however, the group — among other responsibilities — distributed Women, Infants & Children (WIC) services in three Tulsa clinics.

The house at the corner of Green Valley and Apple Valley Drives doesn’t look too different from the other suburban oases around it. Inside, however, is a home to as many as five elderly residents and at least one visiting nurse at all times. It’s part of a new trend in Oklahoma to make the assisted living center small enough to fit in a four-bedroom home and homey enough to lose the stigma of the institution.
