Local Planned Parenthood to break from national organization

Planned Parenthood of South Central New York is breaking away from the national organization, changing its name and going solo.

In early 2013, the group — which has locations in Binghamton, Norwich, Oneonta, Sidney and Walton — will become Family Planning of South Central New York, an independent nonprofit.

The agency’s local Strategic Planning Committee and Board of Directors unanimously approved independence because the Planned Parenthood Federation of America has mandated that all affiliates provide abortions by 2013.
