Awww. A Planned Parenthood exec is complaining that an unintended effect of Obamacare is actually hurting Planned Parenthood.
Lori Carpentier, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Mid and South Michigan reportedly said:
Some people relied on us because they were uninsured prior to the Affordable Care Act. Now they can go anywhere for care, and some of them have been.
Breaks your heart, doesn’t it?
Now they’re forced to tear babies apart all day every day without the occasional visit for birth control pills. That makes the day soooooooo boring. Poor dears.
According to Yahoo Health, “In many states, Planned Parenthood is losing clients as newly insured patients turn to medical providers included in their health plan’s networks, according to data provided to Reuters and interviews with more than two dozen of the organization’s affiliates.”
So when women are given a choice, they don’t choose Planned Parenthood. Maybe that should tell them something. No worries, Planned Parenthood still has the government money truck backing up to its door every year to the tune of 500 million plus. I think they’ll be alright.
