Don't Boycott New Clinic

RECEIVED Tue., Dec. 9, 2003

Can you believe that construction companies actually boycotted the construction of the new Planned Parenthood in Austin ["Women Dig In," News, Dec. 5]?! People like to make this into a pro-life/pro-choice debate, but what about all of the other, more widely utilized resources Planned Parenthood has to offer. Women's services like annual exams and birth control pills should not be discounted. Affordable health care is what is offered at Planned Parenthood, and I think it's a real crime to take that away from so many women who can't afford to go elsewhere.
Thank you,
