Planned Parenthood official: Fight for WIC funds in Tulsa will continue

To claim that WIC funds would be better used by other providers is an insult to the thousands of women who consider Planned Parenthood their primary care provider. Women have different reasons for choosing Planned Parenthood, but the No. 1 reason is that they trust us to provide quality health care, including annual exams, Pap tests and breast exams, at a price they can afford.

Some politicians will stop at nothing — even using infants and children as political pawns — in their vendetta against Planned Parenthood. But we're not giving up on WIC funding in Tulsa. We will fight to regain our funding. We will continue serving our patients and our friends. We will fight this not because it serves Planned Parenthood's purposes, but because we owe it to the women and children we serve.

June is president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland.
