The announcement comes as Congressional Republicans take steps to defund Planned Parenthood. They say Racine and Walworth Counties have no public health clinics and therefore people rely on Planned Parenthood. But according to Richards, community health centers have been very clear that they can not take all the patients that Planned Parenthood sees.

Earlier this month, Graham condemned the deadly work of Planned Parenthood, describing its abortion practices as "Hitleristic".

The trial judge ruled that the clinic would be in violation of the prohibition by providing abortions because Planned Parenthood is a nonprofit organization engaging in advocacy and outreach, not a "physician's practice".

Planned Parenthood does approximately 320,000 abortions every year - totaling close to 1 million in the past three years, according to its own annual reports.

The Tribune reported that Bush, the CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps, will be the keynote speaker at a luncheon for Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas on Wednesday. The abortion group's deputy policy director, Leslie McGorman, told Bloomberg News they will "pull out all of the stops" to stop Congress from defunding Planned Parenthood, but: "What tactic that requires remains to be seen". We are committed to ensuring all people of Wisconsin have access to the health care they deserve, no matter their income, race, ethnicity, sexual identity or immigration status. We can not allow politicians to take it away.

The non-profit partners with organizations (including Planned Parenthood) to place fellows on year-long tenures overseas promoting world health.
