"When Planned Parenthood leaves town, bad things follow. Ask the county in Indiana that drove out its clinic, which happened to be the only place in the area that offered H.I.V. testing. That was in 2013; in March the governor announced a “public health emergency” due to the spike in H.I.V. cases."
From "The Fight for Unplanned Parenthood" by Gail Collins in The New York Times
Of course if PP didn't have a near monopoly on taxpayer funds spent for family planning and healthcare for the indigent, this wouldn't be an issue. Unfortunately, there are a whole cadre of people who will naively lobby for PP's monopoly to continue.
Take a look at the Austin, Indiana, example: If there were alternative organizations to fund (and there aren't), you'd have an argument. But there aren't, and you don't.
