Planned Parenthood Says No to Trump's Offer

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) claimed Tuesday that "millions" of women "turn" to Planned Parenthood for mammograms.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, of Janesville, says the bill will "drive down costs, encourage competition, and give every American access to quality, affordable health insurance".

Planned Parenthood now receives about $500 million annually in federal funding, meaning if their funding was cut, they would seriously suffer.

Legislation was being heard in both houses Wednesday to provide state funding for services performed by Planned Parenthood in Maryland if the federal government defunds the organization.

The new bill includes a provision that would prevent the nonprofit from filing for Medicaid reimbursements for one year, blocking about $500 million in federal funds.

Even throughout his campaign, Trump's comparatively "open-minded" stance on Planned Parenthood was attributed to his daughter.




It is clear that Republicans in Congress and the White House are anxious about the political fallout of attacking Planned Parenthood.

The Kentucky House passed a bill Tuesday that attempts to make it more hard for Planned Parenthood to obtain federal funding. While Planned Parenthood in IN provides abortions, the two locations in Kentucky do not.

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'. Congenital syphilis is 100 percent preventable if treatment is received in a timely matter Defunding Planned Parenthood would prevent many from accessing abortion services at their clinics, but at the same time prevent many from receiving treatment for sexually transmitted diseases. Planned Parenthood of Southern New England, which includes CT and Rhode Island, receives more than $5 million in government funding a year.

Planned Parenthood executive vice president Dawn Laguens told the New York Times: "Let's be clear: Federal funds already do not pay for abortions". With the repeal of Obamacare in the works, low-income Americans, minority communities, LGBT people, and young women will be more reliant than ever on organizations like Planned Parenthood. Right now our country is experiencing the lowest unintended pregnancy rate in 30 years, all-time lows in teen pregnancy, and thanks to access to effective contraception, the lowest abortion rate since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.

Although the proposal was never formally offered, Planned Parenthood officials have strongly rejected such a proposal.

Frelinghuysen recently maintained that he supports a woman's right to choose, and Planned Parenthood. "When asked to choose between full-spectrum, mainstream healthcare for women and families, or late-term abortions and selling baby body parts, Planned Parenthood chose the latter". In response to the newspaper, Trump said polling shows most Americans oppose public funding for abortion.
