White House threatens to defund planned parenthood if they don't stop abortions

The House Republican plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, which is supported by President Donald Trump, includes a provision that would prohibit the use of federal funds to organizations such as Planned Parenthood that provide reproductive services such as abortion.

Planned Parenthood could continue to receive its $500 million in federal funding annually, if it would stop performing abortions.

Planned Parenthood claims they do not use the money for abortions, which is probably true, but government monies free up Planned Parenthood money for the abortions, which amounts to the same thing.

Monday night, the House Republicans released the American Health Care Act, a bill that would prevent people with Medicaid coverage from accessing preventive care from Planned Parenthood health centers among other measures that would dramatically alter the Affordable Care Act.

They are just a fraction of the 1 in 5 women in this country who have relied on Planned Parenthood for preventative services, treatment, and, yes, abortion. "Planned Parenthood said yesterday that no federal funds are used for abortion, so I'm not sure why this bill is needed".

"It ends funding to Planned Parenthood and sends money to community centers", Ryan boasted. Thanks to generations of fearless women and men who formed secret societies, challenged unjust laws, and started Planned Parenthood health centers in their own towns, we've come a long way since. Think of all we can achieve together in the decades to come if we combine the creativity, innovation, and energy of the tech community with Planned Parenthood's commitment to helping people everywhere - no matter what.

Rose says with the support of President Trump and a conservative-controlled Congress, the pro-life movement is closer than it's ever been to cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood's affiliates performed 323,999 abortions during 2013-14, the most recent reporting year for which statistics are available.

The vast majority - 76 percent - of Planned Parenthood services are related contraception and sexually transmitted diseases and infections.

Planned Parenthood has been referred by a Congressional Panel and a U.S. Senate committee for prosecution past year due to its alleged involvement in the sales of fetal body parts.

Planned Parenthood serviced 2.5 million clients in 2015, according to their annual report. They are moms who wouldn't be moms today if Planned Parenthood hadn't caught their ovarian cysts in time, or treated their endometriosis.

The drop breaks a almost 20-year trend, as CBP data going back to 2000 shows an uptick in apprehensions every February. Hipsman said other factors, including a seasonal lull during winter months, could have contributed to the decline.

Almost 10,000 people in the Southern Finger Lakes region rely on Planned Parenthood for services, its website said.

But here's the rub: the 3 percent number is beyond disingenuous and is touted only to bolster Planned Parenthood's reputation as a women's advocate. The petition is available for signing at http://erlc.com/initiatives/defund-planned-parenthood.

The GOP replacement bill states that Medicaid can not directly or indirectly fund any health-care organization that "provides for abortions".

Although the corporation denies violating any laws, it seems clear that profit is a stronger motivator at the clinics than the medical and human needs of the women that go to them in crisis.
