Planned Parenthood patients are anxious about upcoming budget cuts

Planned Parenthood patients are anxious about upcoming budget cuts

No doubt the White House understands it's between a rock and a hard place in trying to satisfy the GOP's conservative base by living up to its campaign promises while most Americans are opposed to stripping Planned Parenthood of federal funding. They said Planned Parenthood performs more than 320,000 abortions annually, although all clinics have been barred from using federal Medicaid money for that objective since 1976. Planned Parenthood has been Read's primary health care clinic since she was in college. Furthermore, by law, none of Planned Parenthood's government funds can go toward abortions, so the number of federal dollars being spent on abortion services at Planned Parenthood is precisely zero.

The bill, called the American Health Care Act, which was introduced Monday, would keep the ACA's policy regarding pre-existing conditions and allow children to remain on their parents' insurance until they turn 26. In fact, the Congressional Budget Office has estimated that defunding Planned Parenthood would cost taxpayers $130 million over 10 years. Vice President Mike Pence is a vocal opponent of abortion, citing his Roman Catholic beliefs, and new USA health secretary Tom Price has supported "defunding" Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood provides care to 2.5 million people each year.

In one of his first acts as president, Trump banned United States funding to global groups that perform abortions or even provide information about abortions.

Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood, issued a statement that reiterated her organization's commitment to women's reproductive health in the country in the face of resistance from Republican politicians who are anti-choice.

Diane Max, a big donor to Planned Parenthood, told The Times that the reported offer is an "absurd play".

Due to their pro-life positions, Republicans in Congress regularly vote to attempt to defund Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood health centers offer birth control, cancer screenings, HIV tests and other care in addition to abortions. In other words, even though abortion is the legal law of the land, Donald Trump and the Republicans will make abortions nearly impossible to get, unless you happen to be very wealthy.

"I would defund it because of the abortion factor, because I'm pro-life".

When Texas cut family planning funding in 2011 in an attempt to defund Planned Parenthood, the results were disastrous for women in the state.

Rubio and other abortion hardliners like Ted Cruz made much of Trump's comment in 2000 that he "supports a woman's right to choose".
