However, Planned Parenthood offers many other services that without this Institution many people would be without affordable quality health care.
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.

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. President Obama and Senate Democrats are willing to shut down the federal government to ensure that tax dollars keep flowing to the Planned Parenthood organization, one of their biggest political allies and financial contributor of millions of dollars to the Democratic Presidential campaign and Party.

When Gianna Jessen was testifying in the House Judiciary Committee hearing on Planned Parenthood on September 9, 2015, she said if she could ask Planned Parenthood one question it would be, “If abortion is about women’s rights then what were mine?” (Jessen 1) She brings up a very good question. If abortion is about women's rights then what are the babies? Where was her right to life,since her mother decided to kill her?
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.
When Planned Parenthood is brought up in conversation, people automatically associated their name with abortion services. However, Planned Parenthood provides a plethora of services ranging from women’s preventative healthcare to family planning service. In fact, Planned Parenthood prevents roughly 579,000 unintended pregnancies each year by offering a variety of pregnancy prevention options (Planned Parenthood, n.d.). Although I have never personally used the services offered by Planned Parenthood, being that I am a woman in a young age group that often struggles to find access to affordable health care, I have friends that are familiar with their services. I’ve also done some personal research myself in case I’m ever in a situation where
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
Planned Parent Hood Funding Planned Parent Hood is funded by multiple different ways, by donations, money that they profit off from there services and federal tax dollars. There has always been an argument between are politicians rather there should be a cut in government funding towards Planned Parenthood and many Americans would argue the fact that rather their tax payer money should or shouldn’t fund Planned Parent, personally I think it should be founded by federal tax dollars. But, what really is Planned Parenthood, and what are American tax payers’ money paying for?
On Wednesday September 30th the House of Representatives passed a temporary spending bill.

Planned Parenthood is the nations largest abortion provider, which is the reason why Republicans want to defund it, along with a recent video leak by anti- abortionist republicans of officials apart of Planned Parenthood discussing the illegal sale of fetal tissue. The video was said to be edited and the group denied any illegal activity.

One in three Texas women do not have a regular healthcare provider after defunding Planned Parenthood (Sullivan). Planned Parenthood was established on October 16, 1916, as an organization helping to prevent breast cancer, STI’s, diseases, and also give affordable contraceptives to its patients. Their mission is to help the men and women who have no healthcare because of the rising prices, by having a low-cost effective program. From political leaders to magazines, Planned Parenthood is portrayed to only have abortion services, which is only 3% of what they do. Planned Parenthood, an organization that helps prevent diseases in men and women, is something that you should invest money and awareness in because many people do not have the money
The fight over reproductive rights has been a struggle that women have dealt with for centuries. Women’s reproductive rights include, but are not limited to the rights to unrestricted access to birth control and the right to abortions. The issue with women’s reproductive rights is that they are being threatened to be taken away. Due to abortions being a highly controversial topic, many restrictions have been placed on abortions since they became legal. Since abortions were legalized in 1973, due to the Roe vs. Wade case, there have been hundreds of laws that restrict the access of abortions.
1 out of 5 every 5 American women have visited a PPH at least once, Which is a big number of women if you think about it. Many will oppose me and bring up how we should defund planned parenthood because they still perform abortions which, in religious terms, is morally wrong. But defunding Planned Parenthood threatens millions of men and women's chances of any health care. It also won't stop abortions, it will encourage the practice of at-home abortions or them being performed by someone who isn't licensed. The money Planned Parenthood gets from the government doesn't even go towards abortions.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, decided to help spread knowledge about family planning after nursing a woman back to health from a botched abortion. Sanger would open her first birth control clinic on October 16th, 1916 in Brownsville, Brooklyn. She wouldn’t stop there. One hundred years later, 1 in 5 women visit Planned Parenthood in the United States to take advantage of their several services that they provide which include knowledge about contraceptives, STD tests and treatments, pregnancy tests, screenings for breast and cervical cancer, and more. About half of Planned Parenthood centers also provide abortions. All of which is paid for by government money.
On a larger scale, a conservative “think tank” The Carter Center, works in advancing international human rights and ending suffering.
