Why Planned Parenthood Refused Trump's Offer to Keep Its Federal Funds

Planned Parenthood spokespersons said the videos were edited deceptively to make Planned Parenthood employees look cruel, and James O'Keefe - the man behind numerous recordings - had been caught sharing misleading footage before. Taken together, these two actions would devastate access to health care generally, and reproductive health care in particular. Indeed, Republican house speaker Paul Ryan revealed he wants to defund Planned Parenthood entirely earlier this year.

He added: 'There is an opportunity for organisations to continue the important work they do in support of women's health, while not providing abortion services'. Because Planned Parenthood is a key safety-net provider serving many low-income women, men, and young people, numerous patients they serve are insured through the federal Medicaid program.

She said in a Live Action video that the amount of time spent with patients was drastically reduced. As if that weren't destructive enough, it also contains language that would "defund" Planned Parenthood health centers.

Rose says with the support of President Trump and a conservative-controlled Congress, the pro-life movement is closer than it's ever been to cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood. That analysis examined the pregnancy rates of women who went to any of 40 Planned Parenthood clinics nationwide, finding that, in the 20 clinics where staff were trained on how to administer IUDs or implants (compared with the 20 where staff were not), women were more likely to use these methods. According to the Government Accountability Office, if Planned Parenthood is indeed defunded, 390,000 women would have no access to preventative care and access would be reduced for 650,000 within one year. Last week, hundreds of these patients traveled to Washington D.C. from all over the country to tell members of Congress how Planned Parenthood changed-and sometimes saved-their lives.

". if i was thinking about my political career, I would definitely think twice before voting to end access to cancer screening and family planning for women back home", she said.

This Alarms China and Russia More Than North Korea's Missile Launch
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Monday's launches show that North Korea has become "a new kind of threat". Experts say It is unprecedented for North Korea to fire four missiles at the same time.

"I don't think we should do this at the state or the federal level, frankly", Serafini said.

Then, during a 2016 town hall with MSNBC's Chris Matthews, then-Republican presidential hopeful asserted, "There has to be some form of punishment" for women who seek abortion.

She said the reverse is now true, with Planned Parenthood taking clients who have to wait a long time for an appointment at a community clinics. Of course, PPFA, which continues to propagate the falsehood that abortion makes up only 3% of the "services" it provides, immediately said no.

Yesterday, GOP lawmakers unveiled the first phase of their plan to repeal Obamacare, and defunding Planned Parenthood is part of the plan.

"Planned Parenthood does not save lives". "We won't win this fight in a day-but if we're going to win, it has to start right here".
