For those of you who would like to see Planned Parenthood defunded...

Posted by   + Show Post

Is the thought process behind defunding Planned Parenthood that it will end abortion?  Do you believe that if PP no longer existed, then there would be no place for women to go for an abortion?

Abortions only account for 3% of the services provided by PP, and PP could survive if it stopped performing abortions.   However, PP is not the only abortion provider in the USA.  There are and always will be other facilities/physicians for women to turn to when they want to abort.  If PP were to stop performing abortions, these clinics will see a need and will just build more clinics in which to perform abortions.

Abortions are legal.  Defunding PP only hurts women.

They could use some of those funds they give to the democrat party and be more money ahead.

Or the funds they use to pay 82 different CEOs.

I wouldnt dislike it if they did everything except abortions! Im against abortions period! There are alternatives like not getting prego to begin with birthcontrol, condoms, tubestied, adoption! Its really not that hard to not get pregnant in the first place if you take precautions! There is also the morning after pill why should a baby have to pay because the mother was to selfish senseless or stupid to use protection!!

What the bloody FUCK do you think PP does? TheyDO NOT JUST PROVIDE ABORTIONS, they provide alllllllllllllll those services you mentioned...UNLESS they can't get funding, in which case, that would ne NO BC, NO STD checks,, NO breast exams... 

Now, can you actyually FREAD, or do you just like to talk about shit of which you have NO IDEA?!

And you know there are other places to receive pelvic exams, birth control, etc.  Some of those places even accept Medicaid (where much of the money PP receives is from). 

Planned Parenthood does not have a monopoly on the vagina.  They've done a decent job at making people believe they do, though.

No they haven't. And what if you don't have medicaid? Where do you go then?

Omgosh!  You mean if PP stops getting funding, there's not going to be a single OB/GYN in the whole country qualified to do those things?  No family practice physician that can perform those services?  No health departments or free clinics?!

Yeah, bullshit.

But, good job on spreading the liberal propaganda!  Kudos!

Abortions don't decrease because they are illegal or defunded either. There was no rise in abortions when they became legal or the ways to get them were made more available. It only made it so that it was no longer on the black market which benefited society. I do not understand why people do not get this. As a person trying to defund abortions, you have just made yourself no better than what you are trying to prevent. There is a choice either you chose that only what you consider worthy deserves to live which just made you the hand of death or you chose to protect all life and find another way to get people to not have abortions.

Hops off my soap box.

Free clinics.  Health Departments.  *gasp*  Pay out of pocket! 

I know.  Its totally unfair to pay for your own body.

Ooooh, yes they did!!!  In fact, they climbed every year until they finally levelled off in the 90s.

I am prolife. I don't want funding to go towards abortions, or abortion counseling at planned parenthood.

However, the organization does provide services for women that doesnt involve abortions, that shouldn't be affected. For some women, PP is the only place to go. That shouldn't be cut.
