Title X Grants Keep Planned Parenthood Clinics Open
Here’s a great move on the part of the Obama administration. They’re giving out Title X grants to Planned Parenthood family planning clinics that have been defunded by state legislatures, helping to keep their doors open to continue serving the medical needs of woman and families.
Ten Republican-controlled state legislatures have voted to defund Planned Parenthood since the 2010 midterm elections, but the clinics affected by the cuts will not have to shut their doors any time soon. The Obama administration so far has awarded hefty new federal family planning grants to Planned Parenthood clinics in three states that have cut the providers’ funding: New Jersey, Tennessee and North Carolina.
