Local medical clinics to benefit from taxpayer money

HHS emblem (Health & Human Services)The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is moving in the direction of beefing up health services in local medical clinics throughout America.

In the early 1990s, Planned Parenthood had the opportunity to set up community health centers to make it part of mainstream healthcare. Jim Sedlak of American Life League, who has been following the abortion giant for decades, says Planned Parenthood refused to change.

"After two years of trying, the board of Planned Parenthood rejected that approach and said No, we want to be contraception and abortion – that's our business," he shares. "And that's the business that Planned Parenthood has been in for the last 25 years."

The taxpayer-supported abortion business has closed one-third of its clinics in the last 20 years, diminishing its presence in various areas of the U.S. In contrast, there are nearly 1,400 federally qualified community health centers that serve the entire country. Last month, HHS announced $125 million in grants for those health centers, which operate more than 11,000 service delivery sites nationwide.

Sedlak, Jim (American Life League)"The awards from the Department of Health and Human Services are really to help build the infrastructure, to help build these community centers to provide coordinated comprehensive patient-centered care to the millions of Americans who use their services," Sedlak explains.

Those centers do not perform abortions, but they do provide a range of medical services not on the menu at Planned Parenthood.

If Congress eventually defunds Planned Parenthood, the savings would be distributed among those community centers to better serve individuals living in poverty.
