Capitol Hill Brief — Community Health Centers > Planned Parenthood

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


How many community health centers there are in the United States? Try 13,540.  Now, how many Planned Parenthood clinics? Only 665.

That means community health centers outnumber Planned Parenthood clinics 20 to 1.  And unlike Planned Parenthoods, these centers don’t do abortions, and they actually have more than gynecological care; they care for the whole woman.

Yet, Planned Parenthood clinics receive half-a-billion dollars in federal funding.  There’s just no other reason other than politics that can explain this.

We should redirect the enormous amount of money going to Planned Parenthood towards these comprehensive community health centers.

It’s time to move taxpayer funding away from Planned Parenthood and support local health clinics. Tell Mitch McConnell that you’ll fight by his side to defend the unborn.
