Planned Parenthood severs ties to Texas affiliate for planning parenthood instead of performing abortions

Planned Parenthood is severing ties with its Corpus Christi, Texas affiliate because it doesn’t perform abortions.

 

CEO Amanda Stukenberg told the Corpus Christi Caller Times that the nation’s largest abortion provider wants all its affiliates to do abortions to “standardize its operations.”

 

Buit the Corpus Christi affiliate, which will be renamed Family Planning of the Coastal Bend on Jan. 1, focuses on preventing unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. It also runs a model program for men encouraging them to share responsibility for family planning: 20 percent of the affiliate’s patients are men.

 

“We have never provided abortions,” Stukenberg told the local newspaper, adding that several local doctors already perform the procedure. “We don’t need to duplicate services.”

 

But being successful at Planned Parenthood’s supposedly main goal of preventing unplanned parenthood is apparently not good enough.

 

“Planned Parenthood’s mission is to see more babies born dead. It’s a heartbreaking reality in a season that should be filled with joy,” says Bradley Mattes, executive director for the Life Issues Institute. 

 

“Planned Parenthood is only for ‘choice’ if the choice is abortion,” Mattes added.
