Competition with Planned Parenthood, not pro-lifers, hurts abortion clinic’s profits

Abortion clinic operator Amy Hagstrom-Miller said:

“This is not the Planned Parenthood we all grew up with . . . they now have more of a business approach, much more aggressive.”

The article says:

“Ms. Hagstrom-Miller competes with Planned Parenthood for abortion patients—and finds it deeply frustrating. She does not receive the government grants or tax-deductible contributions that bolster Planned Parenthood, and says she can’t match the nonprofit’s budget for advertising or clinic upgrades.” Hagstrom-Miller explains that “[t]hey’re not unlike other big national chains. . . .They put local independent businesses in a tough situation.”
