Planned Parenthood Abandons TX Poor Women


Remember when several states sought to defund Planned Parenthood because they didn’t want public money to go to an abortion provider? Oh, the screaming! These laws were so uncompassionate, PP’s defenders screamed, denying poor women basic health care!

Yet, when Texas law required that abortionists have admitting privileges within 30 miles of an abortion clinic–which would not in any way prevent the clinics from providing poor women ”basic health care”– 12 Planned Parenthood clinics closed. From the CBS DFW story:

Planned Parenthood will close a dozen clinics on Friday after a federal appeals court reinstated most of the state’s controversial new abortion law. The ruling from the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals late Thursday means that many abortion clinics across the state of Texas are required to stop providing the procedure immediately.

If abortion was really only 3% of PP–as the organization claims–would a safety restriction of this kind really force twelve PP clinics to close? 

Indeed, the question must now be asked: Where is PP’s compassion? Don’t Texas poor women still need basic Ob/gyn care? Don’t they still need access to cheap birth control? Don’t they still need breast exams? Etc. Etc. Etc.?  

What is that old saying? Money talks? Killing fetuses is Planned Parenthood’s real raison d’ etre. The other stuff is clearly just veneer.

Obviously, we all know exactly what PP's  REAL goal is.  Their concern for the "poor" is all just BS, and it is revealed every time they open their mouths.
