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,
Over the past year there has been a vast amount of discussion dealing with American politics and the American Presidential election. The debates between Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton sparked fear in certain races and sexes throughout the world. Of particular interest was the debate revolving around Planned Parenthood and women's rights in America. After Trumps personal take on Planned Parenthood, it became apparent that women's rights could be threatened if he became president. Although Clinton had her flaws, she believed in women's rights and is an advocate for Planned Parenthood.
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
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.

Why Donald Trump is Unfit to be President The 2016 presidential election results were shocking to many. Donald Trump, the newly elected president, had a surprising victory that has left many fearful for the future.

What has the power to take a life has the power to preserve it, what has the power to love has the power to hate, what has the power to make the world a better place has the power to ruin it. The monumental power of choice resides in all of us and dictates the course of history. But the choice to live is one right that is being stolen every time a mother says no to the growing baby inside of her. Planned Parenthood is an industry that is worth 1 billion dollars that builds its foundation on the death of one million babies a year. In comparison the Holocaust, which was a reign of terror over the “inferior” populations of Europe, had over 11 million people who were helplessly murdered in the span of 12 years.
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.

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.
