Planned Parenthood mandates abortion for its affiliates

There's more evidence that Planned Parenthood is devoted to its primary mission of abortion.

In late 2010, Planned Parenthood mandated that its affiliate centers throughout the U.S. provide on-site abortions by 2013. Mallory Quigley of the Susan B. Anthony List tells OneNewsNow the Planned Parenthood of South Central New York is pulling out and becoming an independent organization for that reason, making it the third Planned Parenthood to do so.

Quigley, Mallory (SBA List)"At Susan B. Anthony List, we think that this is just evidence that Planned Parenthood's chief concern is about making money off of abortion," she says. "It's a huge moneymaker, and the most recent data we have available is that they perform over 329,000 abortions in one year."

Quigley also believes it is evidence that the national office is ruling with an iron fist. Proof of that comes from three former center directors who left the organization.

"They say that the reason that they got into this business is because they wanted to help women, and a lot of them believe in access to contraception and non-abortion healthcare services for women, but this is just going to show that Planned Parenthood really is synonymous with abortion and that they will not stand for any of their affiliates to dissent in any way to their abortion-on-demand ideology," she remarks.

On March 1, 2013, Planned Parenthood of South Central New York will become Family Planning of South Central New York.

Two Planned Parenthood affiliates in Texas went independent in 2011 after refusing to comply with the corporate abortion mandate.
