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.
Yes, their services reach far beyond abortions and can save many lives through cancer screening, prenatal services, and adoption referrals. Plus in a rape situation you can't expect women to go through having that kid.
Yes, but as long as the funding is not used for abortion. There are many couples that want to conceive and are not able to but in some religions, it's not biblical to put enzymes in another person's uterus. So people should have religious exceptions on funding certain things.
They should still fund planned parenthood, but I believe that they should donate money to abortions aswell because I am pro choice and I believe the women carrying that child should decide for herself what is best for herself and her family in the long run.
Yes!!! Abortion is seen as the only thing they do but they help prevent pregnancy altogether for those who want to be safe, they help with health issues (mental and physical) for younger people who’s families cannot afford those things as well as kids whose families refuse to support them!
Yes, their services reach far beyond abortions and can save many lives through cancer screening, prenatal services, and adoption referrals BUT I feel like people should ALWAYS use protection so they don't have to face abortion and there should be a limit on how many times you can get one!!!!
No, If someone does not want their child they can put the child up for adoption or put the child in a foster home. Its better than killing the child, because at least the child can live their life and maybe become successful one day.
