Obamacare Eating Into Planned Parenthood’s Profits

I finally found something about Obamacare that I like.

Many formerly uninsured women who once depended on Planned Parenthood for low-cost access to birth control, abortions and other reproductive healthcare have gotten coverage under President Barack Obama’s healthcare law, making them less reliant on the organization’s 700 clinics.

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 its affiliates.

“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,” said Lori Carpentier, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Mid and South Michigan, which expects to treat 58,000 patients in 2015, down about 15 percent from the 68,000 it treated in fiscal 2012, before major parts of the law went into effect.

    Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) or often just Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization which provides reproductive health and maternal and child health services. It is the U.S.

    I agree. Obamacare reducing profits of the child parts chop shop is a great thing.

    It’s a shame Obama has no morality to stop all the funding. I guess killing children is too important to liberals.

    I also agree and think its sad our Governor didn’t have the guts to use the Republican majority to ban abortion in our state. Ban it and let it play out in the courts. Walker is a coward.
