Planned Parenthood Can Have Federal Funding, If It Stops Doing Abortions

"Our opponents have shown just how determined they are to cut Planned Parenthood patients off from care, and they won't give in easily", Richards wrote in a Tuesday call-to-action.

Even though IUDs are 20 times more effective than the pill, as of 2015 only 7 percent of us women had preferred the contraceptive method, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But again, here's the thing: federal funding is not used to pay for abortions.

The GOP replacement bill states that Medicaid can not directly or indirectly fund any health-care organization that "provides for abortions". But their stances on issues outside the realm of abortion prove otherwise.

On Monday, Trump pledged that he would be willing to guarantee Planned Parenthood's federal funding if the organization agreed to stop providing abortions.

Almost 10,000 people in the Southern Finger Lakes region rely on Planned Parenthood for services, its website said.

President Trump did not directly confirm the conversations, but in a statement said there is "an opportunity for organizations to continue the important work they do in support of women's health, while not providing abortion services". "I promise you that".

Christine Palm, an analyst for the legislature's Commission on Women, Children and Seniors, said: "While we believe it is the job of the federal government - and not states, municipalities or philanthropies - to provide this coverage, we applaud the governor for his proposal to fill that funding gap".

Details of Malloy's exact plan are not clear yet, but the state is already facing a deficit of $1.7 million. Seven dollars apiece from nearly 91 million people gives Planned Parenthood about $636 million to work with.

The Times reports that Planned Parenthood, which conducts over 300,000 abortions every year, would have to stop doing abortions completely in order to keep its federal assistance under Trump.

Six of those CEOs earn more than $400,000 a year, and one over a half million dollars. "Providing critical health care services for millions of American women is nonnegotiable".

In an obvious reference to Planned Parenthood's providing of abortions, Price added "It's incredibly important that we not violate anybody's conscience".

Similar demonstrations were organized around the country by Planned Parenthood. Last month, a Texas court blocked the state from cutting off Medicaid reimbursements to Planned Parenthood, which would have limited patient options even further.

However, the move to defund remains unpopular among voters, with around 62% opposed cutting funding to Planned Parenthood, according to a recent Quinnipiac poll.

The GOP's war against Planned Parenthood is based on the misleading idea that the women's healthcare provider is just a big abortion machine - despite the fact that only three percent of the services provided by PP are abortion services.
