Debunked! Defunding Planned Parenthood Wouldn’t Create A Woman’s Healthcare Crisis

As Reported By The National Review:

The recent effort by congressional Republicans to defund Planned Parenthood has been denounced as in effect a divestment from funding women’s basic health care — a loss that couldn’t be fully absorbed by other health centers. Critics have warned that other clinics are too few and simply don’t offer the quantity or array of family planning, gynecological, testing, and referral services provided by Planned Parenthood.

Now, two prominent pro-life organizations, the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) and the Charlotte Lozier Institute, have created a map that appears prima facie to debunk claims that stripping $500 million of annual taxpayer dollars from Planned Parenthood would produce a public health crisis for women.

The map pinpoints the 665 Planned Parenthood locations and health-care clinics in the United States, compared side-by-side with the 13,540 clinics clustered across the country that are currently offering comprehensive women’s health care, according to the two groups’ data.

In a map produced by Charlotte Lozier Institute and Alliance Defending Freedom pinpoints thousands of health centers besides Planned Parenthood offering women’s health care.
