Most of society today believes that birth control is only used for the “stopping of the egg” in the ovary. There is much more then just stopping the pregnancy. Birth control has many positive side effects which include the following: stops heavy periods, helps prevent painful acne, and can actually cut your chances of ovarian cancer in half. Most girls start to menstruate between age 10 and 15 years, the average age being 12.

Out of the 2.5 million people who visit Planned Parenthood clinics a year, the majority are low-income women who have no other alternative. Therefore, defunding Planned Parenthood would only prevent patients, who are already struggling financially, from receiving preventative care. Politicians in congress only want to shut down these health centers because they offer access to safe and legal abortions, without considering the people it would affect the most. Politicians are not considerate of the struggle some people deal with to pay for their health care because they do not deal with the same hardships of everyday people like

The organization was originally created during a time both birth control and abortion were illegal, so its presence was villainized from the get go. The group was continuously shut down, but since its conception illegal and backroom abortion rates dropped. As a result of women having means to prevent and ultimately end unwanted or dangerous pregnancies they abandoned, dangerous alternatives that were common practice in such situations. Planned Parenthood offered women a sense of control over their own bodies, something they had never experienced before and thus saved many of their lives. Often woman without the means or money to have legal abortions would go to dangerous lengths to rid themselves of the fetus, a majority of these procedures they underwent were life threatening.
This does not make sense, because the fetus does not have feelings or a life until they are outside the uterus. Society still insists that fetuses are superior to the mother, which is false. A bill has been revived that has banned abortion after the twentieth week of pregnancy, and most of Americans support it ("House Republicans"). This bill is still in effect and should be taken into consideration based off of the improvements in women’s rights and abortions. Another point is late-term abortion specifically is wrong because the fetus is more developed at the twentieth week, which is defined as late-term, and can be identified in sex and if there are any complications; therefore personifying the once small fetus.
The most substantial reason behind this altercation is that abortion is viewed as murder. Planned Parenthood is prohibited from performing abortions on patients that are more than 22 weeks pregnant. Around this time of pregnancy, the baby’s organs are only two weeks away from full development, which makes many people believe that medical professionals who perform abortions are murderers. The misconception that these people have is that a woman does not need to abort her baby because she always has the option to give it up for adoption. Yet, there are many resources that report that adoption is not a popular choice amongst women with the option of abortion or adoption.
