Ryan: Fed Community Health Centers Can Provide Same Services as Planned Parenthood

Ardent defenders of Planned Parenthood cling to the argument that the organization provides “health care” to women that they wouldn’t be able to get elsewhere. This is used to both make a case for continued public funding as well as gloss over the fact that PP is really in the business of making abortions happen. During his town hall forum, House Speaker Paul Ryan explained to a young woman that there are in fact plenty of alternatives to Planned Parenthood to provide health care services for women, most notably federal community health centers.
