Since Planned Parenthood announced they would be pulling out of the Title X family planning program, we’ve been tracking the hysteria from Planned Parenthood and a complicit media. One article we looked at was comprised 25% of just quotes from public relations professionals for Planned Parenthood, for example.
That’s why it was a relief to see a balanced article in the Chico Enterprise-Record, a local California newspaper, which noted that women would still be able to access plenty of healthcare resources even without Planned Parenthood being in the Title X program.
They note, “Enloe Women’s Services is another provider in Chico offering a variety of reproductive services to women who have California Health and Wellness insurance plans or who are low-income. According to Women’s Services manager Tracy Weeber, the clinic did not apply for Title X grant funds and therefore is not dependent on any changes to Title X. The clinic, which has accepted government-funded insurance plans like California Health and Wellness since its opening, offers an extensive list of services, including fertility services, women’s health, treatment of female reproductive issues and more.”
The article also notes that not all Planned Parenthood facilities will be affected; ” For the time being, Planned Parenthood and other clinics in Chico will continue to offer service options and a wide variety of resources to women with basic insurance, even without Title X funding.”
In other words, there are still healthcare services available, even unfortunately if some of those come from Planned Parenthood.
Of course, while some Planned Parenthood facilities may not commit abortions, people still need to be wary of any of their facilities.
