Planned Parenthood is a topic that is continuously discussed in correlation with the concept of money as many believe that it “...emphasizes abortions instead of preventative care” (Attira). Because of birthrights, abortions, and the controversy that surrounds such issues, many individuals believe that the government should not be responsible for providing funding. Therefore, actually defunding Planned Parenthood is often brought up as a solution to the highly-debated consensus of government-funded healthcare services. Although many believe that creating a barrier between opinion and action is a positive push, actually defunding the program would be more catastrophic than perceived. Defunding Planned Parenthood would mean blocking and preventing individuals from receiving the health care that they are reliant on.
During the time he said, "I hate the concept of abortion, but I am strongly pro-choice." He also expressed a desire to see "the abortion issue removed from politics" because "it is a personal decision that should be left to the women and their doctors." Trump noted that President Ronald Reagan also was “pro-choice” on abortion at one time, but changed his mind and became a strong
Lastly, they strongly believe that the government should provide taxpayer funded abortions for women who cannot afford them ("Conservative vs. Liberal Beliefs"). On the other hand, Republican views on abortion are opposite of the Democratic view. They believe that the human life begins at conception; disagreeing with the Democratic belief that a fetus is not a human life. Republicans biggest belief is that abortion is murder ("Conservative vs. Liberal Beliefs"). Everybody hears about their party not agreeing with some of the views their party believes in, but not many people have heard about an elected official not agreeing and
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.
The American society today is blinded by the lack of information within reproductive rights and abortion. Most tend to believe that abortion is the main issue within reproductive rights and tend to defund places like Planned Parenthood, or try to. Abortion is a controversial topic, and unfortunately not many know what abortion really is. Due to this, some choose to be Pro-Life as opposed to being Pro-Choice. According to TFP Student Action, there are multiple reasons to not be pro-choice.
(Aaron, Burtless, 2014) Another argument against Obamacare for many is the law goes against the constitution. Many argue that the law goes too far by mandating Americans buy something they don’t want or need. Besides mandating that everyone have insurance or pay a tax the law also requires business to provide insurance coverage to allow access to contraceptives regardless of their religious beliefs. This has people arguing that Obamacare violates their first amendment rights.
Not only would their access to affordable birth control be cut off, but also their access to STI testing and treatments, and their access to life-saving cervical and breast cancer
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.
If Planned Parenthood ends up getting cut completely, only three percent of what is cut goes towards abortion related services. The other 97 percent that actually covers preventative health care, various testings, and screenings are diminished. By defunding Planned Parenthood, the number of abortions are more than likely to rise without the services from Planned Parenthood from unwanted pregnancies. So you can cut a small piece of cash and ensure the shortage by a small amount, however it winds up costing more, when those in need put a strain on the public health system, costing much more in cancer treatments, emergency room visits, undesirable pregnancies, and so on and so forth. Simply because three percent of the money goes to something you don’t believe
Obama wants to shift our country towards socialism which has never fully worked in the history of the world. The disaster that is the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare must be repealed. One reason to repeal Obamacare is that many people are losing or will lose health care under the Affordable Care Act. There have been a “reported 7 million health insurance cancellations in 32 states in 2013” (5 Reasons 1).
(Carmon, 2014). But at the same time I want to say yes, because I would not expect a law to be passed that says Chick Fil A has to be open on Sundays since that would go against that companies religious beliefs. “A pro-Hobby Lobby ruling could have endangered not only Obamacare, but labor rights, gay rights, and women 's rights.” (Redden, 2014). The right to allow a business to deny paying for any type of birth control is what I see has come of this.
Planned Parenthood is a nonprofit organization that provides services regarding contraception, family planning, and reproductive problems (“Who We Are”). According to James Miller, a law professor at Tulane University, Planned Parenthood has been a major conflict among the American people mostly due to its abortion services. Currently, in America, various religious groups, conservative politicians, and individuals are pushing for Planned Parenthood to lose federal funding based on its association with abortion (Poteat). Contrary to the unpopularity of Planned Planned among some groups, according to Paul Poteat, professor of psychology at Boston College, many others believe Planned Parenthood is a necessity for sexual and reproductive health,
Many people question the morality of abortion and several religious aspects come into play about the legalization of abortion. However, the separation of church and state makes any religious aspect invalid when it comes to legalizing anything. Furthermore, Democrats feel that abortion can be justified in cases such as rape or when a woman’s health is endangered and even teen pregnancy, so women should have the right to an abortion. Though deciding to get an abortion can be a very difficult decision, Democrats have agreed that this decision should be between a woman and her doctor without government interference, specifically Republican men who will never be faced with this decision and have no medical experience. This is why Democrats call it “women’s right to choose” and not “Republican’s right to deny” when it comes to abortion since it is about women specifically.
Jeb Bush looks at it as “Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony; it’s an act of love,” he said. “It’s a different kind of crime. There should be a price paid. It shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to provide for their families.” But he also believes that the government should create better ways to keep immigrants out and have a system of patrolling our country.
