I am a social work student at Frostburg State University and I have completed a policy analysis on the defunding of Planned Parenthood. I oppose defunding of Planned Parent because I believe it serves a good purpose in communities. Defunding of Planned Parenthood would remove all federal funding and allow states to take away state funding from them. Without the 500 million dollar yearly funding that Planned Parenthood receives they will have to shut down a numerous amount of their clinics and many of the nine million clients will not have anywhere to go to for preventive and family planning services. In 2012, Texas stopped funding Planned Parenthood with state aid.
Planned Parenthood Federation of America is a nonprofit organization that establishes itself on health care, functioning as an outreach program as well as a provider of various medical services. The organization was developed upon the idea that women should have easy, obtainable access to information and care to ensure a healthy life. Planned Parenthood both promotes as well as establishes this motive as the program itself is “...based on respect for each individual 's right to make informed, independent decisions about health, sex, and family planning” (Charity Navigator). Planned Parenthood was founded on October 16, 1916, in Brooklyn, New York by Margaret Sanger and Ethel Bryne. Margaret Sanger was a strong advocate for women’s health rights,
Planned Parenthood is a program that has been helping people pay for essential procedures without a large fee. It should continue to be covered by the government because of the immense help it has offered people for years. As well as the cost is being funded by Title X which is helping other healthcare organizations across the United States. Planned Parenthood, as well as a negative misconception, is that they only help with abortions. Planned Parenthood helps with anything like educating people about their health.
The taking of life, the extermination of a sack of cells: abortions, no matter what you side on when you hear “Planned Parenthood,” you think abortions. There's a wide misconception that Planned Parenthood does mostly abortion services; and with the Pro choice/ Pro life people debating on defunding them or not this is why we shouldn't defund pph. 3% of Planned Parenthood services are abortions, Contrary to popular myth. The other 97% is for other health related services. Such as Ob/Gyn visits, birth control, mammograms, STD tests, health education programs, diabetes and anemia screenings, physical exams and much more.
In recent months, a series of undercover sting videos have been released by the anti-abortion group, Center for Medical Progress. These videos show Planned Parenthood officials talking to members of the Center for Medical Progress, who are posing as biomedical company representatives. In these videos, the two parties discuss the sales and harvesting of fetal tissue and organs after performing abortions. In the series of videos, senior director Deborah Nucatola and a Planned Parenthood executive were taped discussing the process for aborting fetuses, preserving organs (liver, heart, lungs, head), and joking about payment for fetal tissue in the form of a Lamborghini.
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. President Obama and Senate Democrats are willing to shut down the federal government to ensure that tax dollars keep flowing to the Planned Parenthood organization, one of their biggest political allies and financial contributor of millions of dollars to the Democratic Presidential campaign and Party.

The Center of Medical Progress released a series of videos on YouTube that shows a meeting with top-level abortion doctor from Planned Parenthood Deborah Nucatola. Within the video, it shows Nucatola describing the illegal selling of body parts for nodes (a central connecting point). The video has caused many problems for Planned Parenthood, along with many of the other videos released by CMP. One major problem Planned Parenthood has faced is due to a debate where Carly Fiorina made a comment about the videos that was untrue.
Despite the beneficial projects Planned Parenthood has participated in, riots have broken out against the facility. According to The Daily Signal, “Students for Life of America organized ‘Women Betrayed’ rallies nationwide to protest taxpayer funding for the nation’s largest abortion provider” (Scanlon). The protests could eventually lead to a decrease in funding for Planned Parenthood. The riots do not only affect the business, they also affect the patients. On June 28, 2014, a six-hour, non-violent protest broke out in front of the Boston Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood Hearing The Congressional "hearing" of Planned Parenthood was more interrogation than listening tour. It was political grandstanding of the worst order. Only in the US do we have a "serious" political party who spend their time and taxpayer resources attempting to legislate their citizen's sex lives and keep (poor) women in reproductive chains. I guess when the world's problems get too complicated for tiny minds, talking about sex is the best option.
Life in the twenty-first century has its perks. There have been some amazing advances in the world, with major breakthroughs in science, medicine, technology, and more. But the part we take for granted most is our ability to be human beings. For the majority of history, women were seen as lesser than men. Men thought that they were emotional, hormone driven creatures with no greater purpose in life than to bear children.
Hello Milwaukee volunteer family! I am Marie Wojtan and I am the new Public Affairs Intern. I am a senior at Marquette University where I am double majoring in Corporate Communication and Women and Gender Studies. I am so excited to be interning at Planned Parenthood for many different reasons.
For the event paper, I watched the documentary Trapped, that was playing at the school November 17th. I was very hesitant to watch this film; I was worried there would be an angry undertone but it ended up being the exact opposite it was a sad undertone. The film focused on the southern states and their battle with the laws being passed that restrict women from getting safe abortions. Back in 1973 the court finally made the decision in Roe vs. Wade to make abortion legal to end pregnancy in the first three months stating that decision belongs to the women not the government. States can make restricts against abortion if it doesn’t cause undue burden to the women
Availability of health care to poor women, and the need for contraceptives to prevent pregnancies rather than need abortions. But if Planned Parenthood wants to keep its funding and continue to provide abortions then it has to separate the two services, and provide evidence federal funding isn't going towards abortions. I believe abortion should be legal, but I also believe people who don't believe in it shouldn't have to pay for
The Planned Parenthood activist group justify their stance on protecting reproductive rights for mothers and providing free sexual and reproductive health services by claiming that their organizations efforts lead to the fundamental ideals of the historic authors John Locke, Edmund Burke, Adam Smith, and John Stuart Mill; life, liberty, and property. To begin, Planned Parenthood would argue that individuals who choose to take part in their services, do so to better their life. It may be utilizing their birth control services, getting an abortion, or acquiring simple reproductive health care, but the person receiving the resources ultimately decides what is best for their body and life.
