Some of their clinics; fetal tissues will only be used for scientific research. Planned Parenthood believes the videos were edited to go against their abortion program, and denies any sort of payment from the fetal tissues sold. If payments were received to the organization, it was done legally for reimbursement of costs. The organization is in the process of more policies to advance attacks against Planned Parenthood. The videos were shown on the internet, television, and Republicans responded and took control of the issues.
Some opposed medical authorities state that a fetus can’t feel pain until 29 weeks or later and that they have performed many late abortions, even though they state this there are no facts disclosed in their stories. I think this article written by Douglas Johnson would make a great academic paper because I agree that abortion should be illegal in all fifty states and just because Johnson writes it in his article there are many more authors that claim the same thing and all the supporting evidence that is out there to prove that an unborn fetus can and does feel pain while still in gestation. After reading this article and the evidence provided I now believe that an unborn baby feels just as much pain as a baby that is
People have religious reasons and personal reasons for not wanting Planned Parenthood funded. But, if the government decides to defund it what would the consequences be? Women and men not getting affordable health care. Planned Parenthood can help you get an STD test, get birth control, and pap smear tests. Although the organization does get funding for those examples
(1) Fetal tissue can be used for research. Two health centers out of the nation, allow the fetal tissue to be used for research and out of those two, only one actually gets paid. (2) Fetal tissue can be used for good. People who are pro-abortion believe that it’s good to sell fetal tissue so they can use it in vaccines and other medical fields.
I have read that “At least one in two pregnancies in America are unplanned and most of those pregnancies lead to abortion”(New Health Advisor). To me that makes me feel that birth control is very necessary because if women don’t want to get pregnant then they should have used some form of birth control in the
Gregory gives an insight on some of the benefits of organ transplants and how in some countries, it is legal for people to sell their organs. The text is directed toward medical personnel because it causes them to question, “what if”, organ sales legalized or what would they gain from this legalization? His article is also directed towards people in need of an organ, and organ donors. Gregory is successful when he uses logical, emotional and ethical tactics to persuade his audience on why organ sales would be beneficial. Some logical tactics Gregory uses to persuade his audience is giving the number of how many people die waiting for a transplant.
Teen pregnancies have become much more common with the oversexualized views of our millennial era, and often times young parents cannot handle the stress of the child. In 2013 alone, 273,105 babies were born to women aged 15–19 years. If abortion is not their number one choice, they will most likely turn to adoption, leaving the population problem still in existence. People often use the common phrase “adoption is always an option” but are unaware that there are currently “397,122 children are living without permanent families in the foster care system (Congressional Coalition On Adoption Institute, CCAI). There are too many children, and not enough eligible parents around to take care of them.
GOP lawmakers are trying to shut down Planned Parenthood clinics across the country, on the basis that all they do is provide abortions. On the contrary, only three percent of Planned Parenthood services are abortions. They provide a variety of services for both men and women , including general health care and sex health. Some general health care includes cholesterol, high blood pressure, and anemia screening, cancer testing, vaccines, and physical exams. They try to make it as accessible and as affordable as they can, and accept most health care insurance, so that even low income men and women are able to get sufficient healthcare.
How would you feel if you discovered that doctors were pushing flu vaccinations on patients just for financial reasons? That, along with many other, is one good point Claire Dowskin brings up in her article “The Truth Behind Flu Shot Mandates for Healthcare Workers”. In some hospitals flu vaccination funding for employees is out of the funding, and in some hospitals, will fire, or not hire, people if they have not, or refuse to receive a flu vaccination, wearing a mask is not even acceptable. Seeing how strict and forceful some hospitals are about flu vaccines would make one think they act this way for a payout for the vaccine distributers. Another way to look at this is how unethical mandatory vaccines are.
There has been much debate over altering D.N.A in the next generation of citizens. Many people are disagreeing over the ethics involved with gene editing. Using fairly new technology, Crispr-Cas 9, scientist can now alter D.N.A to eliminate some life threatening diseases and mutations by cutting out unhealthy strands of D.N.A, and replacing it with new ones. More controversially, scientist now have the power to change external appearance and character traits of babies, also know as “designer babies.” Genetic engineering should only be used in most dire situations, only to cure life threatening diseases. Gene editing should be regulated so people have access to screenings to look for potentially deadly diseases.
In 2014, 360,000 women received breast exams, while another 270,000 received pap tests (Klasing, 2017). Both of these tests provide low-income women an equal opportunity to detect cancer early in an effort to receive life-saving treatment before it is too late. Like I’ve mentioned before, so many people associated Planned Parenthood with abortions. I’ve heard so many times, “why should we have to pay for women to have abortions.” However, absolutely none of the government funding received by Planned Parenthood pays for abortion services. In fact it’s quite the opposite.
“Planned Parenthood health centers comprise 10 percent of all publicly funded family planning centers, but they serve 36 percent of all clients who obtain care from the country’s family planning health center network” (Guttmacher Institute). The non-profit organization gets a specific amount of money to fund patients, however, Planned Parenthood serves 26% more patients, which they do not get funding for. The firm is relying on a small amount of funding from the government, yet they serve more than they are able too. Planned Parenthood patients will financially suffer if Congress decides to go through with the defunding of Planned Parenthood. The government does not fund abortion services, which deem to be the most unfavorable portion of Planned
Planned Parenthood gives affordable healthcare through tax money and donations to the people of lower classes that cannot afford a regular healthcare provider. Last year, they received 528 million dollars which many other organizations, government officials, and presidential candidates do not agree with. Presidential candidates are among the many that still do not agree with funding Planned Parenthood with taxpayers money while men and women can not pay for any health care alone. One of the largest stereotypes about Planned Parenthood is that more abortions are made than any other practice. The largest service they perform is STI screenings which are 42 percent while abortions are only 3 percent.
Planned Parenthood is used for so much more than just abortions. People are unaware of the good that Planned Parenthood does in the United States. Planned Parenthood is around for the sake of people who are suffering from poverty. They allow people to come up with a plan to help with payments or if a person is eligible they can fill out an application to get the organization’s services for free without a co-payment. This form of payment is funded through Medicaid and is called Family Planning Benefit Program (“Who Are We”).
To qualify and receive Medicaid, one of the criteria’s are to be poor and pregnant, which is also state funded. The funding cut from Planned Parenthood, will be used in other areas involving female medical services. Some are also wondering what
