Planned Parenthood closes three Texas clinics

ADF official comment
Published On: 10/18/2017

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Michael J. Norton regarding Planned Parenthood’s decision to close three clinics in Texas shortly after a bill was signed into law banning late-term abortion and holding abortion facilities accountable for higher health and safety standards:


“Planned Parenthood is more concerned with using American taxpayers’ dollars to pad its bottom line than providing competent healthcare to women. Although Planned Parenthood blames budget cuts for its decision to close down three of its Texas abortion clinics, including the clinic Abby Johnson formerly managed in Bryan, Planned Parenthood’s waste, abuse and potential frauds involving taxpayer funds should have shut it down long ago. We will continue to hold Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast and all other Planned Parenthood affiliates accountable for its fraudulent use of taxpayer dollars and hope that even more abortion clinics will soon close.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
