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 one of the nation 's largest and leading health care provider that offers affordable health care to many trivialized individuals and families. This institution ensures Americans have access to a health care system for the unfortunate while still providing quality care. Although the media and numerous reports have brought up issues in regards to Planned Parenthood, many of the objections to the Institution is focused on one subject at hand and not the overall mission alone. The issues in regard to Planned Parenthood is the opposition that the government should not eliminate funding for this organization due to the abortion services provided. However, Planned Parenthood offers many other services that without this Institution many people would be without affordable quality health care.
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.
Why Planned Parenthood Should not be Defunded by the Government “Trying to block women from getting access to contraception or defunding Planned Parenthood is completely nonsensical from a policy standpoint.” - Richard Carmona, american physician and nurse. This is exactly why Planned Parenthood should not be defunded. It offers many things from contraception, abortion, cancer screenings and preventions along with much more. Also, if they were to be defunded and abortions could no longer go on, many more unplanned pregnancies would happen and the cost of welfare would escalate a lot.
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
This recent controversy has raised questions concerning the ethicality and legality of fetal tissue donations and research. It has also spurred debate over the government’s role in funding and authorizing clinics like Planned Parenthood, especially given the ideologically divise nature of the services it performs. As a result of this controversy, advocates and legislators are pushing for changes in federal policy, particularly changes that will defund or significantly reduce funding for Planned Parenthood. Such action could have significant effects on the conduction of scientific research, women’s rights, and women’s access to affordable and accessible health care nationwide. This paper examines the recent Planned Parenthood/fetal tissue research
About 10,000 people assembled at the State House in Columbia, South Carolina, to join in "Stand with God, Pro-Family Rally," with Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Rick Perry along with several US senators and pastors from across the state. The hot topics at the rally were religion and the issues of abortion and same-sex marriage, with participation of people from neighboring states of North Carolina and Georgia. "Our nation is in crisis right now. But I want to tell you there is a spirit of revival that is sweeping South Carolina, that is sweeping the country.
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.
Planned Parenthood performs many breast exams, which are needed to detect early cancer, and pap tests, which can find pre-cancerous cells. There’s no question that Planned Parenthood helps prevent and treat very serious sexually transmitted infections and diseases. Moreover, the organization tests for and treas STI’s quite inexpensively. Without Planned Parenthood, women who are uninsured or have a low income would have nowhere to go to get these necessary tests done. Yet in 2015, the republicans attempted to shut down the United States government over funding women’s
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
I still remember the first Time I stood before a Planned Parenthood clinic for a few hours to support the right to life. I personally have performed many protesting actions against abortion. I have picketed in front of Planned Parenthood.gone to pro-life masses. attended numerous right to life conferences, and other pro-life actions. I do these things to support my beliefs, and extend support to those who are confused and considering abortion.
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
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.
Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization that provides sexual and reproductive health care, education, information, and outreach to more than five million women, men, and adolescents worldwide each year (plannedparenthood.org). Planned Parenthood was founded in 1916 by Margaret Sanger. Since the 70s a movement to defund Planned Parenthood has been a debate back and forth. Defunding Planned Parenthood would involve in taking away federal funding for health care clinics that provide multiple services such as, STI/STD testing and treatments in men and women, contraception, cancer screenings and prevention 's, pregnancy tests, prenatal services, abortions and other services as well (plannedparenthood.org). The major issue that has become
The term “pro-choice” has fallen out of favor when the American public. Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) recently discovered that the word just does not seem to have the power to motivate the general population in the way it did when it was first coined. And while other pro-abortion groups may continue to use it, Planned Parenthood is attempting to cast a wider net by abandoning it all together. In the modern media culture, the term “pro-choice” has been used for everything from abortion-on-demand to giving parents the option to choosing what kind of school their child can attend throughout their life.
