Much has been written recently about the defunding of Planned Parenthood by both the state and federal governments. Much of what has been written in favor of Planned Parenthood touts the ancillary services they provided in addition to having a referral connection with the abortion clinics in Iowa City and Bettendorf. This letter is not intended to enter that foray.
