Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization that provides reproductive health services in the United States and internationally. In 2014, federal and state governments provided the organization with $528 million in funding (40% of its annual budget). The majority of this funding comes from Medicaid which subsidizes reproductive healthcare for low-income women. In 2014, abortions accounted for 3% of the services they provided. The majority of the other services include screening for and treating sexually transmitted diseases and infections and providing contraception. Proponents of funding argue that federal funding for Planned Parenthood does not pay for abortions and that the vast majority of government funding that the organization receives is through Medicaid reimbursements. Opponents of funding argue that the government should not fund any organizations that provide abortions.
No. Planned parenthood is a racist eugenics organization that was created to eliminate all black people from the earth by legally murdering their babies.
Planned Parenthood isn’t simply for abortions. My mom had 5 miscarriages before having me. Those cost $10,000 each unless you want to pee out a dead baby, which is very traumatizing. Planned Parenthood makes things like that more affordable as well as birth control, which I use to regulate my periods and save myself from cramps. Before birth control, some cramps were so bad I missed weeks of school and had to be hospitalized. If you take away the idea of Planned Parenthood entirely, it makes like living hell for women who have these struggles.
If tax dollars go to abortion clinics, then the tax dollars allocated should be split with half going to abortion clinics, and half going to adoption agencies.
if u care so much about the children in orphanges, go adopt a child. save a child whoś physically breathing, who can feel and think and is struggling in the system. dont worry about some cells that arent even in your body but in another womans and you just feel entitled to tell her its wrong.
yes, women should be able to do whatever they want with their body, many people say i dont have tp get the vaccination and they say its their body their choice so why arent woman allowed to do what they want with their body.
I think that as many people say that it is a women's choice her body, I disagree with that statement because if that child came out and was a day old and the mother decides she wants to abort it then that is murder because that baby has a life has a heartbeat but truly a fetus starts forming within the first 12 weeks which is when most women find our they are pregnant. So that baby is very much alive. It is murder so why are we funding it.
I am Catholic so cannot support abortion so do not want my tax dollars to pay for any abortion. Also Planned Parenthood donated $45,000,000.00 dollars towards abortion rights candidates in the 2020 election cycle - it seems to me that they do not need additional money from the government if they can just give it away like this
I feel like they should to a point like people could take full advantage of this and have several children and get loads of money, and or they shouldn't because the baby could die before it is born and the parents wouldn't have a child. Bottom line they should as long as there is a limit to how many children can be counted for this and should be taken place as soon as the baby is born.
No, they should be funded by those who use their services within a restructured health-care system, as well as permitted to function as regional providers by traveling between unassociated private clinics on a bi-weekly basis.
We should just work in cornfields and go back to digging dirt by hands. That way with the government, he's not only doing that but helps if all cars, devices, and electric powered things were gone off the face of the earth. That way we have family just taking care of each other with herbal medicines from the garden.
I don't think the government should support Planned Parenthood because some money is used towards abortions. I think they should start a new program that gets does all the same as planned parenthood without abortions and fund it.
No, requiring a portion of all tax payer money to fund organizations like Planned Parenthood violates the First Amendment rights of many tax payers. This is the United States. Aren’t we supposed to have majority rule while protecting the rights of the minority?
