SHELBY COUNTY, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Shelby County Commissioner Steve Mulroy said the county isn't getting a fair shake when it comes to money from the federal government aimed at providing health services to poor women.

Services include contraception, cancer screenings, and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases.

A few years ago Shelby County decided to award the federal dollars to Christ Community Health Center over Planned Parenthood, which had received the money in the past.

Some county leaders cited Christ Community's number of locations as the reason for the switch. Others thought the move was politically motivated because Planned Parenthood provides abortions.

Commissioner Mulroy claims new numbers show the switch has been a failure.
