I thought President Obama’s executive order was supposed to eliminate the promotion of abortion by the new health-care bill?

Comes this line , in the Detroit News :

An early sign of health care reform’s impact is Planned Parenthood’s decision to open a new Oakland County clinic within the next 18 months, adding to 15 locations, including Detroit, Warren and Livonia. Unlike other Detroit area centers, the new location is likely to include abortion services.

[Planned Parenthood President Cecile] Richards and Lori Lamerand, executive director of Planned Parenthood of Mid and South Michigan, are ramping up for a boom in birth control and other reproductive services—what Lamerand calls “an onslaught” of women poised to gain new access to reproductive health care.

An onslaught of women, poised to gain. An onslaught . What a word to use,

But the point remains the ascription of the new clinic to the impact of the health-care reform. Didn’t Planned Parenthood just get done insisting that the bill didn’t do this?
