Planned Parenthood, at less than 700 locations, is redundant, unnecessary, and grotesquely focused on promoting abortion as a method of birth control.
That is not the point Planned Parenthood is making, they are refusing Title X because doctors cannot offer patients the alternative of abortion. This will end up as essentially a funding cut and some poor women will lose services, if you want to end abortion this is the wrong path.


Somewhere over 50% of births are through Medicaid and that needs to be addressed, this is a social problem. Constantly battling PP takes away focus on the problem.

They could of chose to split off that side of the services they are providing to some other entity with separate billing, accounting, staff etc. The claim is no federal funding is used so that entity should be able to operate without any interruptions.
Planned Parenthood is one of the most audited agencies in the US, do actually think that they could escape an audit in a state like Texas. They are already audited independently, this is just foot stamping because. They felt that abortions would disappear when they came up with the Hyde amendment.

Good. The federal government shouldn't be subsidizing political organizations like PP.

Take away the Title X services from these two Planned Parenthood locations, and there will be no Title X services in Montgomery County at all.

You are assuming no one else steps in to take their place. How many times in the history of the world when there is taxpayer funding on the table is there no one to take it?

I went from having a very good opinion of PP to having a very poor opinion of it, and it had nothing to do with them performing abortions but of their terrible, imo, financial decisions. This is just the latest one.

So what if they are now permitted to perform fewer abortions? That would just mean more money for pre-pregnancy contraception and education. But, no, instead they decided to "cut off their nose to spite their face", as my mother would say.

I don't disagree with this. I'm kinda disappointed that they gave up instead of fighting the idiocy that is so prevalent in our society today. Abortion is legal, and any provider should be able to refer a patient to a provider of a legal procedure.

Sounds like a place that needs no federal money whatsoever.
