Four out of the 12 clinics for Planned Parenthood are being shut down now that the government has defunded abortion. This swift reaction to new laws implemented by the White House goes to show how effective the new Republican Regime under President Donald Trump really is.
In addition to that, they’re closing down their only clinic in Wyoming and three of their New Mexico clinics. Unwilling to admit defeat, they are calling these closures a “realignment of resources.”
They will no longer be getting money from Medicaid to be used on preventive care, which included birth control.
Some are worried that those who are young, of color, low income or live in rural areas might have lost access to heath care, but this is just Planned Parenthood hiding behind the façade of being a public service when in fact what they’re pandering is death.
This can be easily seen in the covert videos taken in 2012 which shows Planned Parenthood officials haggling over prices regarding the fetuses recovered from abortions.
“Folks are excited that we’ve got a different administration, so there is a sense of optimism,” said Melanie Israel.
Some pro-life activists also noted that despite claims that these cutbacks in funding are forcing some abortion providers to close their doors, the reason may have to do with fewer women getting abortions today than in the past. “There isn’t as much business to go around,” Randall O’Bannon, director of education and research at the National Right to Life Committee, told Fox News. “There’s a drop in demand. Abortion is not something women really want. They want something better for themselves and their babies.”
While O’Bannon is correct that the U.S. has seen a drop in the number of abortions in recent years, the reason appears to be due more to an increased use of contraception and an increase in abortion restrictions in many states than it does personal choice.
