With the attack on Planned Parenthood and regarding the video scandal which blew Planned Parenthood in the spotlight once again, is the problem its self that checking the facts are number one. People are so quick to see a video about an unborn child and act, without checking the facts. With Planned Parenthood they do perform abortions, yes but safe legal abortions they do use tissue and organs from these abortions to do lifesaving scientific research they also don’t mention in the video that the patients and the woman and families they make the decision to donate the fetal tissue, for research “this research should be honored not attacked and demeaned. “ What the facts don’t show in this edited video, which actually the video is over three
In September of 2011 Planned Parenthood was excluded from receiving any state funds and in 2013 Planned Parenthood was denied from participating in the Texas Women’s Health Program. This recent ruling adds more fuel to Gov. Abbot’s LIFE Initiative plan. LIFE Initiative is a plan to protect the unborn and prevent the selling of body parts. The ‘F’ in LIFE refers to remove funding specifically for Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers out of taxpayer money completely, both at the State and local levels.
Throughout history Planned Parenthood has been in the spotlight of the court. In 1973, the supreme court case Roe v. Wade made headlines when it “ruled unconstitutional a state law that banned abortions except to save the life of the mother” (McBride) The case was brought up by Jane Roe, who said that banning abortions was in direct violation with her 14th amendment right to privacy.
This recent controversy has raised questions concerning the ethicality and legality of fetal tissue donations and research. It has also spurred debate over the government’s role in funding and authorizing clinics like Planned Parenthood, especially given the ideologically divise nature of the services it performs. As a result of this controversy, advocates and legislators are pushing for changes in federal policy, particularly changes that will defund or significantly reduce funding for Planned Parenthood. Such action could have significant effects on the conduction of scientific research, women’s rights, and women’s access to affordable and accessible health care nationwide. This paper examines the recent Planned Parenthood/fetal tissue research
Why Planned Parenthood Should not be Defunded by the Government “Trying to block women from getting access to contraception or defunding Planned Parenthood is completely nonsensical from a policy standpoint.” - Richard Carmona, american physician and nurse. This is exactly why Planned Parenthood should not be defunded. It offers many things from contraception, abortion, cancer screenings and preventions along with much more. Also, if they were to be defunded and abortions could no longer go on, many more unplanned pregnancies would happen and the cost of welfare would escalate a lot.
Planned Parenthood is a National issue fighting for abortion access, giving women facing an unintended pregnancy must have access to safe, legal abortion services. Birth control and the fact all people deserve access to birth control and other preventive care, health care equality and the idea all people should have equal access to reproductive health care. For years politicians in Congress and statehouses across the country have attacked Planned Parenthood’s patients’ access to care. But I believe Planned Parenthood’s health centers provide high quality, affordable reproductive health care, to 2.4 million people across the country. When politicians talk about defunding Planned Parenthood, they really mean depriving patients who depend on public
After hearing these facts’, you can better understand what Planned Parenthood is and that they contribute way more help to are society then just abortions, and by offering these health benefits we would keep cutting back the number of unplanned pregnancies and that would cut back the number of
Abortion opponents want this bill passed because it would reduce the amount of abortions being performed in the country. Planned parenthood serves mainly lower income women, and if Planned Parenthood could not perform abortions for a year, few lower income women could get abortions. Some could get abortions by paying more for them, but not all. The reason abortion opponents are pushing for this is recent reports that Planned Parenthood has been selling fetal tissue for research. This has not been proven.
Many people are protesting and causing an uproar all over the world. They also provide abortions that are immoral and go against many people’s beliefs, including my own. This is why I believe that abortions should be made illegal and Planned Parenthood should no longer receive funding from the United States government. The disgust with planned parenthood causes many protests and arguments around the world and most of the uproar is because of the abortions that their centers provide. These arguments and fights have been going on for decades and the reasoning behind them leads us right back to abortion.
Back in December 2013, the Michigan Senate Minority Leader, Gretchen Whitmer, told her colleagues in Lansing a story that she did not want to tell. Years ago she was a victim of rape who felt enormous relief that she was not pregnant and forced to consider an unwanted pregnancy from a rapist. No response was uttered by a single member of Michigan's overwhelmingly Republican-dominated, male legislature. Nevertheless, only hours before the Christmas recess, and without holding hearings or having any real debate whatsoever, Michigan’s state legislature passed some of the most backwards anti-abortion legislation ever seen in this country. They passed an act that bans abortion health insurance coverage for incest and rape.

Legally, there have been split views as to whether taxpayer dollars should go to Planned Parenthood and its overall funding in government. On one hand, abortion is a controversial topic that not everyone agrees with. The idea of taxpayers paying to fund an organization that supports this is unacceptable to many pro-lifers. In January of 2016, “…the U.S House of Representatives voted 240 to 181 in favor of defunding abortion giant Planned Parenthood” (Freiburger). The reconciliation bill, which will end taxpayer dollars going into Planned Parenthood, is a large step for pro-lifers.
Before Roe v. wade the number of deaths from illegal abortions was around 5000 and in the 50s and 60s the number of illegal abortions ranged from 200,000 to 1.2 million per year. These illegal abortions pose major health risks to the life of the woman including damage to the bladder, intestines as well as rupturing of the uterus. The choice to become a mother must be given to the woman most importantly because it’s her body, her health, and she will be taking on a great responsibility. A woman’s choice to choose abortion should not be restricted by anyone; there are multiple reasons why abortion will be the more sensible decision for the female.
Flippen 1 Shaunice Flippen Planned Parenthood is considered a public interest group, which are citizen activist groups that try to represent what they deem to be the interest of the public at large. The most recent controversy in the news today is the proposal by the Republican Party to defund Planned Parenthood for one year, which is expected to fail, which could shut down the government.
