Another Planned Parenthood affiliate decides to disaffiliate because of abortion requirement

While Planned Parenthood (the nation's largest abortion provider) claims abortion is only a small part of what they do, they quietly issued a new policy which requires every Planned Parenthood affiliate to provide abortions by the beginning of 2013.  While some affiliates have merged to comply with the abortion edict, other affiliates have chosen not to comply and disaffiliated themselves with Planned Parenthood.  The latest news of disaffiliation comes from the state of New York.

Planned Parenthood of South Central New York will change its name because of a requirement by the national federation that will force all local offices to perform abortions by 2013.

In a news release issued Wednesday evening, officials with Planned Parenthood of South Central New York said the local offices will become an independent organization next year.

If abortion is only a small part of what Planned Parenthood does, then why are they forcing affiliates to provide them and in the process losing affiliates? 

Planned Parenthood provided 329,445 abortions performed in 2010 which is more than 1/4 of all abortions performed in the United States.
