Vote could remove Planned Parenthood from county building

MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich. -- Board commissioners plan to vote Tuesday on whether or not to terminate its contract with the Planned Parenthood in Muskegon County.

The organization currently leases a portion of the county building, 209 E Apple Avenue in Muskegon but board members will vote today on whether or not to give Planned Parenthood a 90-days notice to vacate, according to the meeting's agenda.

The county says it wants to use the clinical space and rooms to expand STD and HIV services but Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan claim its a political move.

Currently Planned Parenthood is the only Title X provider in the county, meaning people would be left without free or low-cost reproductive health care, STI testing or cancer screenings.

In the last year, more than 1,500 people used the clinic.

Commissioners plan to meet at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Louis McMurray Transit Center, 2624 Sixth Street in Muskegon Heights for the vote and we will of course keep you posted.

    Makes sense to me. Planned Parenthood is not a part of the county government. As a privately owned organization, It has no place in a publicly owned building.

    Margaret Sanger the founder of planned Parenthood was a KKK member wanting to rid the world of inferior races. Please get rid of them from our county building.

    Why were they there in the first place?!
    Would the county have rented to say the Southern Baptists for administrative work?
    I don’t want tax dollars supporting murderers having a government building to murder in. Insane what we’ve come to. Time to wake up to what liberalism brings, hint, it’s not good.

    Vote them out, they are a publically funded religion.

    • “He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap. As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.” – Ecclesiastes 11:4-5
