A Planned Parenthood abortion business is closing up shop in Lubbock, Texas as a women’s clinic that actually offers women legitimate health care is taking over.

The Planned Parenthood abortion business talks a good game about providing women with choices and health care. But, Planned Parenthood’s own figures show 92 percent of pregnant women going to Planned Parenthood get abortions while a handful get prenatal support or adoption referrals. Although Planned Parenthood likes to talk about getting hundreds of millions in federal funding for family planning, the numbers show abortions are up while contraception services are down.

In 2011, Planned Parenthood performed a record high 333,964 abortions. In 2011, abortions made up 92% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services, while prenatal care and adoption referrals accounted for only 7% (28,674) and 0.6% (2,300), respectively. For every adoption referral, Planned Parenthood performed 145 abortions.

Cancer screening & prevention services and contraceptive services provided by Planned Parenthood continue to drop. Contraceptive services have dropped by 12% since 2009, and cancer screening & prevention services have dropped by 29%.

As local news reports, now a legitimate health clinic for women is taking over the Planned Parenthood center in Lubbock.

Lubbock’s abortion clinic at 67th Street and Indiana Avenue has been taken over by a non-profit group called Generation Healthcare and will no longer offer abortions.

In response to questions from, Generation Healthcare said, “Upon the completion of the transfer of all assets to Generation Healthcare, Planned Parenthood will no longer exist in Lubbock Texas.”

The non-profit said abortion is not a service its clinics offer.

CEO Merinda K. Condra said in a written statement, “Our mission is to make certain that preventative screenings and routine health care service are available to all women.”

Generation Healthcare is associated with an adoption service.

The written statement said renovations will begin on both the clinic and Planned Parenthood’s Briercroft location.  Services will initially be provided three days per week.  Later it will expand to five days per week.



Generation Healthcare, a division of Generation Covenant, announced they will begin providing comprehensive health services to women across the South Plains. The announcement comes on the heels of the Lubbock-based nonprofit group’s recent acquisition of two properties formerly owned by Planned Parenthood*.

“Our mission is to make certain that preventive screenings and routine health care services are available to all women,” said Generation Healthcare CEO Merinda K. Condra.

“It is so important for every woman to be proactive about her health. In order to serve as many women as possible we will be accepting Texas Women Health Coverage in the coming days,” said Condra.
