Hempstead, NY – Today, the New York Times released a story regarding a Trump Administration proposal for Planned Parenthood to “quit” providing abortion care and source alternative organizations to “do the abortions.” Below is a statement in response from Planned Parenthood of Nassau County (PPNC) CEO and President, JoAnn Smith.
Statement from PPNC CEO and President, JoAnn Smith:
“The White House proposal – and any such proposal like it – fundamentally misunderstands Planned Parenthood’s commitment to the 2.5 million people we serve across the country, and the more than 13,200 patients we serve right here in Nassau County.
Our mission is – and will always be – to ensure that all women have access to the full range of reproductive health care, which includes safe, legal abortion.
Our doors need to stay open, no matter what. We are calling on our supporters to be even louder, even pinker, and even more generous to ensure that our patients are able to continue to receive the care they need and deserve.”
