This post by Life News entitled : Planned Parenthood Chapter Quits, Forced by National to Do Abortions
12/21/10

A Texas-based Planned Parenthood affiliate has resigned as a member of the national organization because Planned Parenthood Federation of America wanted it to do abortions.
Local officials say PPFA is instituting a mandate that all of its affiliates across the nation offer facilities where abortions are done and the head of Planned Parenthood of South Texas says her group doesn’t want to add abortions.

CEO Amanda Stukenberg told the Corpus Christi Caller newspaper that PPST doesn’t need to do abortions because independent abortion business already exist in the area, so her group has focused solely on promoting contraception and birth control.

“We have never provided abortions,” she said. “Our position is that if that is a need in your community, fine. There are far greater needs in our area than abortion. We feel that women here have options. We don’t need to duplicate services.”

Stutenberg told the newspaper that national Planned Parenthood officials told her they want to standardize their operations nationwide and that includes a requirement to for all affiliates to do abortions.

Instead, Stukenberg said the Planned Parenthood chapter will change its name to Family Planning of the Coastal Bend and she and her board of directors feel confident they can financially survive leaving the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

And here is More I have dug up about Planned Parenthood affiliates:

• In an article by Rita Diller called: Missing Millions: which ran in the Washington Post, Diller’s investigations reveals that audits from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) investigating Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s (PPFA) show the organization, which gets billions in tax payer money, spent just $657.1 million between 2002 and 2008 from federal government grants and programs, but Planned Parenthood’s own annual reports show that it took in $2.3 billion from government grants and programs during the same time period. PPFA expenditures of federal money average just 32 % of its government income from 2002 through 2008. Diller asks, where are the Missing Millions? Okay- where are they…so far no one including our own US Government will force Planed Parenthood to answer that question. That’s your money and mine !
