Planned Parenthood reopens Kingston facility

Last week, Planned Parenthood Greater New York celebrated the reopening of its abortion center in Kingston, New York. The center was temporarily closed over a year ago amidst the pandemic and the PPGNY organization coming under fire for its racist activities. Among the reasons behind the reopening of this—and four other PPGNY facilities (Goshen, Massapequa, Rome and Staten Island) —center is the $10 million Payroll Protection Program loan PPGNY received illegally from the Small Business Administration. 

Another reason for Planned Parenthood’s optimistic reopening of facilities is the fact that the Biden administration has been working hard to increase federal taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood. This past Monday, for example, Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services announced a new regulation that will restore the federal family planning program (Title X) to the way it ran under the Obama administration, when clinics were able to refer women seeking abortions to a provider. Planned Parenthood is now expected to rejoin the program and get over $60 million in taxpayer funds.

In addition, the administration has been making changes in several laws that will make it easier for Planned Parenthood to commit more abortions—many at taxpayer expense. The most notable change in this regard is allowing the Abortion Pill to be sold to women without the need for an in-person meeting. The administration rushed through this change, citing the COVID pandemic as the reason, but is working hard to make that change permanent. This will make it possible for Planned Parenthood to use telehealth visits to prescribe the Abortion Pill and then simply mail the pill to the mother so she can kill her child at home.

So far this year, Planned Parenthood has opened, or reopened, a total of 12 clinics nationwide. Those clinics are in Arkansas, California, Delaware, Florida, Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. STOPP is working with people from many of these states either through personal visits, phone calls, or virtual meetings to provide our expertise on disrupting Planned Parenthood’s business plans and saving preborn lives and the souls of vulnerable teenagers.

STOPP was founded in 1985 by four individuals (Helen Westover, Dorothy Madrigrano, Robert Cassara, and Jim Sedlak) in New York State. Our initial focus was on Planned Parenthood Dutchess-Ulster—which operated clinics in Amenia, Beacon, Ellenville, Kingston, New Paltz, Poughkeepsie, and Red Hook. Only Kingston and Poughkeepsie are still open. Our focus has always been to cause such discontent with Planned Parenthood that it will have no choice but to close its doors and get out of town.

Despite the reopening of some Planned Parenthood centers, all the fighters against Planned Parenthood are steadfast in our efforts to rid the country of Planned Parenthood . . . forever!
