“Although FQHCs have become an important part of the publicly funded family planning effort, a new Guttmacher Institute analysis finds that they cannot be expected to deliver contraceptive care to the large numbers of women who currently rely on Planned Parenthood or other Title X–supported providers. In fact, to suggest otherwise willfully oversimplifies the considerable challenges FQHCs would face in doing so, and ignores how these proposals put millions of U.S. women at very real risk of being unable to obtain the basic care they need.”
