New Competition; Planned Parenthood VS. Family Planning
4/1/2013 (Updated 8:17:56 PM)The split between the former Planned Parenthood of the Southern Tier and it's former parent organization is getting deeper.
The local group is now known as Family Planning of South Central New York.
It split from Planned Parenthood after the national organization announced all of it's affiliates offer on-site abortion services, something Family Planning of South Central New York does not do.
On Friday Planned Parenthood of America announced it was awarding the territories of Broome, Chenango, Delaware, and Otsego Counties to Planned Parenthood of the Southern Finger Lakes.
The move now puts it in direct competition with Family Planning of South Central New York.
"Threatening Family Planning of South Central New York's financial stability and our mission which should be the same mission as Planned Parenthood only because we no longer carry that brand smacks of brand scientology and is indefensible," said Debra Marcus, CEO of Family Planning of South Central New York.
Marcus wants people to contact Planned Parenthood to protest the effort to steer clients away from Family Planning of South Central New York.
