Original Message Oklahoma is withdrawing federal funding to three Planned Parenthood clinics in Tulsa that for 18 years has allowed them to provide food and nutritional counseling to low-income mothers — a decision that mirrors efforts in other conservative states to defund the group and one its director described Thursday as a “short-sighted political maneuver.”

The State Department of Health notified Planned Parenthood of the Heartland CEO Jill June in a letter last week that it would be terminating its contracts with the Tulsa facilities at the end of December. The contracts are federally funded through the Women, Infants and Children program. This year, the Planned Parenthood clinics received $454,000, combined.

The Tulsa World first reported on the plan to terminate the agency’s contract on Thursday.

The head of the health department’s WIC Services division said the decision was based in part on the uncertainty of future federal funds and that Planned Parenthood’s cost per participant exceeded those of other Tulsa-area clinics.

“There were performance factors included in this decision,” said Terry Bryce, the chief of the health department’s WIC Services division.
