This is one set of layoffs that is really a blessing. Hopefully those involved see the opportunity to view what they were involved in and where else their talents can be used. Please Lord, help them...

Planned Parenthood makes staff cuts
Funding declines partly attributed to Madoff.
Print Email Miriam Kreinin Souccar Hit with declines in funding from the economic crisis and the Madoff scandal, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America is laying off around 20% of its staff.

Roughly 30 people were let go earlier this week, according to a source who works for the nonprofit. Executives at Planned Parenthood confirmed the layoffs, but declined to give more details.

“As with many other nonprofit organizations, Planned Parenthood has had to make staff reductions at our headquarters due to the challenging economic times facing our country,” said Maryana Iskander, chief operating officer at the agency. “While taking this action is never easy, we want to ensure the millions of women and men who rely on Planned Parenthood as a health care provider that the reductions will not impact our ability to deliver care to those in need.”

Part of Planned Parenthood’s funding declines stem from the closing of the Florida-based Picower Foundation, which shut down in December because its assets were managed by Bernard Madoff. The $1 billion foundation was one of the few major funders of reproductive rights issues.



Take Care and God Bless,
Sarah

Amen. I like this part below too. It shows that we have a good and just God who also has a sense of humor.
