Major Planned Parenthood mergers in New York State

By Jim Sedlak

Planned Parenthood is planning a major overhaul of its New York State operations that will take place over the next year. You will recall that Planned Parenthood operates similar to a franchise operation.

All clinics are operated by Planned Parenthood affiliates. There are currently 53 separately incorporated affiliates across the country.

A new concern in "pro-life" legislation

By Jim Sedlak

Just months earlier, the organization was co-founded by Helen Westover, Bob Cassara, Dottie Madrigrano, and Jim Sedlak. Over the last 34 years, STOPP has undergone many organizational changes. In 1990, it separated into two separate groups—the original STOPP and Mid-Hudson STOPP. In 1994, the original STOPP became STOPP International and then, in 1998, it became part of American Life League. ALL’s Judie Brown has been fighting Planned Parenthood for longer than STOPP has, so it was a natural fit. STOPP International still operates today as an integral part of ALL.
