Planned Parenthood opposed for King City health clinic
Monterey Herald

A county health committee declined Friday to recommend approval of a bid by Planned Parenthood Mar Monte to move in to a county health clinic in King City after a protest from a Seaside community group.

Supervisor Fernando Armenta told a Planned Parenthood representative during Friday’s county Health and Human Services committee meeting the topic was simply too politically charged and any such request would likely be sent straight to the full Board of Supervisors for debate. Armenta called the issue a “really big political firecracker” with a “short fuse on it.”
