Should the federal government defund Planned Parenthood?

  • Yes......

    Why should the Government fund an independant women's health organization?

    Does the government fund the Pro-life centers that provide education and financial assistance to mothers who chose to carry to term? Of course not. If they supported both sides equaly, the Pro-Choicers would cry foul! "The Government is funding religion...bleh,bleh,bleh."

    Has anyone ever looked into the statistics of planned parenthood? Does anyone know why they set up their offices in low-income, black and hispanic neighborhoods?

  • Why should pro life people pay for an abortion clinic

    Why should a person that is pro-life have to pay for someone's mistake of getting knocked up and then not wanting to have the kid that is the consequence from they're mistake. Tax payers that are not for abortions or pp should not have to pay for a service that they are completely against

  • Take away the Planned Parenthood funding.

    PLanned parenthood is supporting the killing of babies. They may not be totally formed, but they are still kids. The planned parenthood people want to kill children. That is wrong. I believe it should be a persons choice to kill their child, but our tax money should not go towards something so cruel

  • Easily self supported...

    It has been reported that PP is a 1.3 billion dollar company... That would mean that defunding PP would take away roughly .001% of the incoming revenue needed to facilitate the services needed by the women who can not afford health care.
    Furthermore, if PP truly believe that what they provide is beneficial to the women they provide for, show it by supporting themselves... And their cause. If they don't feel they can, I've seen a lot of people come forward in the last couple years that would be glad to donate to their cause.

  • Limited Funding - More Community Support

    I am for continuing with limited funding, so long as it removes abortions and similar services that terminate birth and focuses on pre-conception health services (education, birth control, etc.), and post-conception support for OB type care and assistance. If you choose to have sex, you must be accountable for your actions. Sex should not be looked at as recreational as the potential outcome is life altering or potentially really dangerous (STD's).

    I don't feel the tax payers should have to pay for services that terminate life (my belief), but women should still have the right to choose to do so if they want to, but not with tax payer money. If people truly support abortions, they can create a non-profit entity and fund it by willing donors.

    If Planned Parenthood is defunded, I for one will donate to services that focus on pre-conception related services that don't include services that terminate life (abortions).

  • Abortion is a sin

    God is the creator. A woman does not have the right to end a life God has created. People want everything easy these days; hardships form our souls. Don't risk your soul for comfort and ease. The undercover videos of Planned P are sickening; and show what our country's morals have descended to.

  • Duplicity of Government Funding for Planned Parenthood.

    President Obama himself said that with the Affordable Care Act (aka...Obamacare) services that are performed at Planned Parenthood would be covered at little to no cost for the low income and those who can't afford it. It seems like Planned Parenthood is trying to make extra money for themselves and it costs taxpayers (people with jobs) more money $

  • Abortions should be outlawed...

    The same hypocrites who support things like "black lives matter" have no trouble mercilessly murdering innocent children before birth. I always have believed that abortion is murder. Easy solution to not getting pregnant is simple, don't be fornicating in the first place. Defund planned parenthood and shut it down completely.

  • God has no place in my Uterus.

    If your reasons for defunding Planned Parenthood involve anything to do with God, it isn't relevant. God has no place in the government or in my body. I have the right to choose what to with my body. PP gives help to low income individuals and families who cannot afford it. If you support the defunding of PP, you're saying that over 25% of the people who receive care there are not important. Because those 25% would not be able to afford to go anywhere else.

  • You are not funding abortions.

    The biggest argument of those against the government funding Planned Parenthood is that they do not support abortions and they do not want their money going to them. However, Planned Parenthood cannot use federal funds to perform abortions; they use money from Medicaid. Even then, the Medicaid funds are for abortions involving rape, incest, etc. So if people were truly against abortions, they would support Planned Parenthood for providing accessible contraceptives, which would prevent unwanted pregnancies, thus preventing abortions.

  • Pro parenthood today

    Save the young , planned parent hood is important. There are people that are my friends who need this and listen some are broke bitches! You guys need to realize the people coming into get this shit are in need of help and can't get it any other way , stop being selfish let the free help continue

  • Here is why not

    Not providing planned parenthood would affect many Americans dependent of their services. One of the major effect of not having Planned Parenthood would be that millions of low income Americans would lose access to family planning and contraceptive services. This would result in more unplanned birthsWithout Planned Parenthood this would result many unplanned births causing more people to need welfare and government services to provide for their unplanned families. Halting federal funds to Planned Parenthood would shrink spending by $520 million in the short run -- but, over the first decade, it would cost taxpayers an additional $650 million.” (Washington Post). Ending planned parenthood would also end the free breast cancer screening it has. So a woman who was supposed to be test for breast cancer years ago is now in trouble because her income did not allow her to get regularly screen and is now suffering the consequences of not detecting it earlier. Contrary to popular belief that if funding for Planned Parenthood were to increase, cancer screening and prevention services would decrease and abortions would increase. However in reality the amount of abortions Planned Parenthood does has nothing to do with abortion. According to the Hyde Amendment which bans the medicaid coverage of abortions , does not allow planned parenthood to spend government funding for these procedures. Therefore all the abortions that are done are done with the patients out of pocket money. Decreasing funding for Planned Parenthood drastically decreases funding for cancer screenings and prevention services. (Washington Post ). Also the need for abortion could be prevented with Planned Parenthood providing condoms, birth control and other contraceptive services. These are just some of the effects that American would suffer if it was not supported by Planned Parenthood.

  • You kidding me?

    Of course not. Tax payers' money doesn't even go towards abortion in the first place, it goes to other things such as STD tests, Breast cancer screenings, therapy for rape victims, etc. If you want to defend those things you must be damn stupid. And for those saying abortion is against your religion, don't get one. Another woman''s body is none of your business.

  • First world countries should not have third world healthcare

    Planned Parenthood provides free and drastically reduced gynecological services to those who might otherwise not get treatment, saving the lives of countless mothers and children. They provide affordable care for those who don't have, can't afford, or have lost their health insurance. They provide counseling for women and girls who have been abused, raped, or are in the process of being bullied or pressured into sex. They provide education on hygiene and wellness. They provide screening and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases. No matter your views on abortion, Planned Parenthood is doing very important–and indeed, lifesaving–work. I understand that some people are uncomfortable with aspects of the services that the organization provides. And I respect that, and them. At the same time, I encourage everyone to remember that the issue of womens' reproductive health–and rights–is not black and white. In the gray areas, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of lives at stake.

  • Humans will be humans

    People only seem to like to focus on the abortion side of the organization. Who cares if a woman gets an abortion, you dont even know the person, so what does it have to do with you? "But its killing an innocent life". Cry me a river, do you remember when you were a fetus? Not to mention the fact that once an unwanted child is born itll be abandoned. "Uhm, just send it to an orphanage." So youre going to take care of the baby right? No? So now itll be abandoned, maybe abused, probably into drugs and will probably end up in jail and supported by, you guessed it, your taxpayer dollars. So either way your paying for this kid. "Well then they shouldnt have had sex in the first place." First off, i think we all understand when a woman gets raped, but lets think about if it was just an accident. Its a human desire to have sex, we as a species are one of only two that have sex simply for the pleasure of it. Telling someone they cant have sex because if they get pregnant its their fault is like telling someone not to go swimming because they might drown. We are sexual beings, and thats never going to change, so we need places like planned parenthood as a sort of fallback, a failsafe. Condoms break, the pill isnt 100% effective, i mean anything could happen, the fact is this child is unwanted and insignificant not to mention not even a human yet. I believe thats why its called a fetus and not a baby yet. You dont have to like it, but the fact is it helps more than it hurts, your taxes arent going to go down from defunding planned parenhood, so whats the point? I just dont understand the mentality that a fetus should be preserved, but not the life of someone already alive.
