There are 650 health centers, and 56 independent local affiliations (Planned Parenthood at a Glance). That is a substantial amount of facilities to offer just abortions, but the truth is that only three percent of what Planned Parenthood does is for abortion services, 80 percent of their patients receive services to prevent unintended pregnancy (Planned Parent at a Glance). Planned Parenthood offers health care to 2.5 million men and women, 270,000 pap test and 579,000 unintended pregnancies each year(Planned Parenthood Provides Essential Services That Improve Women 's Health Planned Parenthood Provides Essential Services That Improve Women 's Health), and if it was defunded that it would not just affect the funding of abortions but it would cause an estimate of “390,000 women to lose their access to these essential services altogether, and up to 650,000 women might face reduced access to preventive health care within a year” (Planned Parenthood Provides Essential Services That Improve Women 's Health Planned Parenthood Provides Essential Services That Improve Women 's Health). They provide 1.2 million pregnancy test, 360,000 breast exams, and 4.2 million test for sexually-transmitted diseases (Standing with Planned Parenthood) which include more than 650,000 HIV test (Planned Parenthood at a Glance).

According to MacKay’s research, in the year 2000, “2,583 Americans died while waiting for a kidney transplant” (120) and according to Matas, “over 6% of waiting candidates die annually” (2007). "With over 60,000 people in line in the United States alone, the average wait for a cadaverous kidney is ten long years" (120). As the reader can see, MacKay is very credible with stating factual statistics in regards to the urgent need of kidney donations and she has Matas to back her up with similar statistics.

The affiliates can then spend up to 75 percent of their net income on local programs of their choosing, like breast cancer screenings. In 2010, Susan G. Komen for the Cure spent about $141 million on public health education, including awareness campaigns, as well as around $75 million to finance medical research aimed at finding a cure and $67 million to fund breast cancer screening and treatment.

Bush enacted medicare Part D - a competitive market for drugs with government set ground rules, Medicare Part D has cost below all government projections since its inception, and in 2013 was 50% below what the congressional budget office originally estimated.(Emanual). If we could implement similar government regulated open markets for healthcare the cost of healthcare would, studies have also shown when a similar act was enacted for medical equipment, the prices dropped by 42% and studies have not shown and problems.(Emanuel) Although this would cause Health Care industries to make less profit from each sale, it would greatly lower the cost and increase the quality of healthcare for everyone. Significant evidence shows that market competition works to control health care cost like any other industry, and by pushing for an open health care market, health care costs would go down by at least 30% allowing the government and the people to pay less for health

In the article “Dangers of the Human Clones” Professor Ian Wilmot states “Currently almost 99% of cloning procedures end in failure” I agree yes like most projects there are high failure rates from the start. But did scientists such as Edward Jenner give up when he was searching for a cure for smallpox? No, he didn 't and with that mentality further scientific research will never be done.
Currently in the U.S. four percent of women prisoners enter prison pregnant, approximately 12 to 15 percent of offenders entering prison are pregnant at any given time. Over the past five years, approximately 66 babies were born to inmates. Despite the fact that nearly two-thirds of woman in U.S. prisons are mothers, there is still no national policy that dictates what should happen to the more than 2,000 children that are born behind bars in prisons across the country each year. Where do all these babies go? While prison nurseries have existed in this country for a century, the first was established in 1901 at Bedford Hill Correctional Facility north of New York City--there is renewed interest in expanding these programs today.
In this study of Human Betterment Foundations, it is clearly noticed that more females than males were sterilized, accordingly 9067 females and 6999 males. Not to mention what happened during the Nazi period, Hitler’s infamous propaganda against Jewish shocked everyone. Briefly, several German scientist visited America, took experience and applied similar methods to people considered as “lives unworthy of life”, in order to obtain a society with only Aryan features. Disabled people, Jewish, gypsies and more were isolated in concentration camps or sterilized. Apart from the tortures, Nazis eugenic program intensified to death camps, resulting to more than 6000000 Jewish killed.
In year 2004 SALW production occurred in 1,249 companies based in 90 countries around the world. The small arms survey estimates that there are about 900 million SALW in flow around the world, and approximately $3 billion are in legal trade including (accessories, parts, and ammunition). At this proportion, the annual value of illegal arms business can be approximated around $300 to $600 million. More reports gives the information about $1 billion for this illicit trade.

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
