Planned Parenthood serves Texas women by leaving town

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Jul 18, 2013

“Ensuring Texas women have access to the care they need to stay healthy, especially women in rural and underserved areas, goes to the heart of our mission," says Planned Parenthood. So the group is closing down three Texas clinics.

Huh? How’s that? Why would you help women stay healthy by closing clinics? Planned Parenthood blames a hostile political environment in Texas, but the truth is that the clinics are closing because a newly enacted law requires abortion clinics to have hospital admitting privileges and to meet other state standards for ambulatory surgical facilities-- since they are, in fact, ambulatory surgical facilities. Planned Parenthood can’t meet those standards.

So the best way Planned Parenthood can help Texas women stay healthy is by leaving town. How true!
