Boise Elites Finance Planned Parenthood Expansion
Planned Parenthood of Idaho has set its course on expanding into other communities, after establishing an office in Twin Falls, and financing a major expansion of its home offices in Boise.
Earlier this year, Planned Parenthood submitted a grant request to the Idaho Women’s Charitable Foundation, asking for $21,850 to expand its operations into Canyon County and McCall. They call this initiative, “Planned Parenthood Without Walls”. Apparently their plan is to piggy-back in the offices of some doctor in those communities, so they can expand their reach with minimal overhead.
In its grant proposal, Planned Parenthood says it intends to go after low-income women and girls with cheap contraceptives and counseling – including abortion referrals. These “mini-clinics” will provide sex education materials and a variety of contraceptive devices, including no doubt, the “Morning After Pill”.
They claim they will be able to lure about 1000 new women and girls into each of the new clinics.
The women involved with this charitable foundation have, according to the Idaho Statesman, decided to give Planned Parenthood $10,000 – which will allow Planned Parenthood to open one of the clinics. I’m guessing that Canyon County will be the priority, largely because of its sizable minority community.
So what is the “Idaho Women’s Charitable Foundation”? It is an ad hoc group of 128 wealthy women, mainly from Boise, who donate $1000 each year to the Foundation. Half of the money is distributed each year in the form of grants. You’ll recognize the name of former Supreme Court justice Cathy Silak and Velma Morrison.
Planned Parenthood was one of four grant recipients this year.
