Sullivan spreading mistruths on Planned Parenthood

Sullivan spreading mistruths on Planned Parenthood

They could just break Planned Parenthood into two corporations, one providing woman's health care services and the other abortions.

Planned Parenthood executive vice president Dawn Laguens told the New York Times: "Let's be clear: Federal funds already do not pay for abortions". They are women in rural America who felt lumps in their breasts, and Planned Parenthood was the only place they could get quick, affordable, urgently needed care.

During the campaign period, Trump had spoken favorably about Planned Parenthood's work, saying millions of women have benefited from its services such as cancer screenings. The deal was, if Planned Parenthood would stop performing abortion services, the nonprofit could maintain its federal funding.

Planned Parenthood's abortion procedures cover only 3 percent of their annual services. In 2015, Planned Parenthood only cited 518,000 "active individual contributors", which is a good way off from the 91 million we worked out above. About 60 percent of Planned Parenthood's 2.5 million patients nationwide are on Medicaid.

If you follow the logic of not reimbursing Planned Parenthood, then the government programs should not be reimbursing any doctor or facility that provides abortions.

The push to defund Planned Parenthood, a clinic that offers reproductive healthcare like cancer screenings and contraception to 31,000 patients in MA, stems from its ability to offer abortions.

"Polling shows the majority of Americans oppose public funding for abortion, even those who identify as pro-choice", he said.

President Donald Trump said during a presidential debate that though millions of women are helped by Planned Parenthood, he would remove funding because of "the abortion factor".

Politicians are renewing their attacks on reproductive health care at a time when we've made historic progress. But some say that's not enough, and they want to strip federal funding from the organization simply because it provides abortions.

"Setting aside the dubious framing of Planned Parenthood as anything but an abortion giant, Phillips" claim the group is nonpartisan is problematic, particularly given its vigorous political action during the 2016 election season.

"We're not used to that in politics", Dannenfelser said.

Planned Parenthood supporters assembled outside of Congressman Reed's Ithaca office downtown and protested the proposed GOP replacement for the Affordable Care Act on Tuesday.

Planned Parenthood provides cancer screenings, including mammograms and Pap smears, birth control, abortions, and testing for sexually transmitted diseases.
