With the attack on Planned Parenthood and regarding the video scandal which blew Planned Parenthood in the spotlight once again, is the problem its self that checking the facts are number one. People are so quick to see a video about an unborn child and act, without checking the facts. With Planned Parenthood they do perform abortions, yes but safe legal abortions they do use tissue and organs from these abortions to do lifesaving scientific research they also don’t mention in the video that the patients and the woman and families they make the decision to donate the fetal tissue, for research “this research should be honored not attacked and demeaned. “ What the facts don’t show in this edited video, which actually the video is over three
Planned Parenthood gave way to a change in mentality among more women and helped to raise awareness that abortion is a constitutional act that should be protected. My assigned case in particular is a landmark case because it gave way into a larger part of the women’s rights movement as well as opening the door for allowing a better regulation of abortion among each individual state. Cases that affected Casey v. Planned Parenthood were the decisions in Roe v. Wade, City of Akron v. Akron Center for Reproductive Health and Thornburgh v. American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Based on the decision made in this particular case, the rulings of City of Akron v. Akron Center for Reproductive Health and Thornburgh v. American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists were overturned. Twenty-three and a half years after this case was out of the Supreme Court, we as informed people who are able to critically think and debate about many issues, have trouble regulating abortion and abortion law because of the issue of law getting in the way of morality and the common man.
Planned Parenthood had saved many lives and ultimately changed the way the American society thinks about safe sex. The majority of the United States takes Planned Parenthood Institutional teachings reliable, and affective. If this law did succeed against Griswold, the United States as a whole would be different in contraceptives. It would not be a right for both men and women to use contraceptives and protect themselves if it wasn't for Griswold that stood up against the Connecticut law. A devastating impact on society would take away peoples rights to be able to prevent from getting pregnant.
“Defending the unborn against their own disabilities.” Margaret Sanger is known for being a birth control, population control, and a eugenics activist. As a eugenics activist she believed that the science of improving a human population by controlled breeding to increase the occurrence of desirable heritable characteristics. But before getting into too much detail about how she was the founder of “Planned Parenthood”, let's hear her backstory.
For years republicans have been trying to defund Planned Parenthood, and at this moment in history, they are closer towards their goal than ever. With a republican majority senate, and a republican as president, the fight to defund Planned Parenthood only faces minimal resistance. Republicans, more specifically the Trump Administration, like to hide behind their religious beliefs and values when it comes to their ideas regarding Planned Parenthood. They tend to only focus aspects that they disagree with while paying no mind to the good that Planned Parenthood does. These republicans that are working to defund Planned Parenthood and oppose Planned Parenthood so strongly tend to only focus on the belief that defunding Planned Parenthood would
Like every other policy there are pros and cons to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and the officials elected by the people of the United States will have to work together to find a compromise for the country. Most people against the Planned Parenthood Action fund are pro-life and mostly just against abortion, but even if Planned Parenthood Federation of America was defunded, abortions would still be legal and still performed, but maybe even more without the free provision of birth control. The only way to stop abortion is to make it illegal, not by defunding Planned Parenthood. Maybe Republican politicians like Carly Fiorina or Ted Cruz will be able to defund Planned Parenthood Federation of America in the upcoming years, but maybe the democrats will once again block their attempts and keep The Planned Parenthood Action Fund
Lastly, the number of abortions would go up if Planned Parenthood were to be defunded. Planned Parenthood offers more than just abortions, whilst they are a very small part of what Planned Parenthood offers. 42% of what they offer is STI/STD testing and treatment, 34% is contraception, an 11% is other women’s health services, 9% being cancer screening and prevention, then abortion at a small 3% of what they offer, while 1% is other services.

Planned Parenthood challenged Pennsylvania Governor Casey on the Pennsylvania Abortion Control Act of 1982 protesting the abortion restrictions (Planned Parenthood v. Casey, 1992). The law required more consent in order for mothers to get abortions. The Planned Parenthood v.
Planned Parenthood is supported by 47% of Americans (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/planned-parenthood-favorable-rating_560aab72e4b0768126ff261a) Yet we see a majority of the House pushing for these acts that go against the favorable opinion of the entity. Similarities are seen when colonist ask for representation. In an assembly, some of the more powerful colonists came together to speak to England about their love for England but the lack of representation was unfair. In both situations, we see the controversy appeased, but neither get what they desire.
Planned Parenthood is a National issue fighting for abortion access, giving women facing an unintended pregnancy must have access to safe, legal abortion services. Birth control and the fact all people deserve access to birth control and other preventive care, health care equality and the idea all people should have equal access to reproductive health care. For years politicians in Congress and statehouses across the country have attacked Planned Parenthood’s patients’ access to care. But I believe Planned Parenthood’s health centers provide high quality, affordable reproductive health care, to 2.4 million people across the country. When politicians talk about defunding Planned Parenthood, they really mean depriving patients who depend on public
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.
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 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.

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.
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.
