Planned Parenthood in NH Stops Giving Birth Control–But Not Abortions
I hope everyone notices the irony in the news today. Because Planned Parenthood has been defunded $1.8 million in New Hampshire, they are halting their provision of birth control and potentially pelvic exams:
Planned Parenthood has stopped providing birth control pills and other contraception in New Hampshire after the state’s executive council rejected up to $1.8 million in funding for the group, which also provides privately-funded abortions.
The move is expected to affect an average of 120 low-income women each day. Other services provided by Planned Parenthood, including pelvic exams, were also in peril.
“Patients who used to be able to come to us for their pills now have to walk away,” said Jennifer Frizzell, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.
But apparently, those patients who want to have abortions are still able to be served at 3 of Planned Parenthood’s 6 centers in New Hampshire. Why does Planned Parenthood cut contraception and cancer screenings first? Answer: because it’s been all about abortion all along.
