The President of the United States has pronounced he’s inclined to permit the woman’s medical provider, Planned Parenthood, to keep the funding it receives from the Federal Government, at least as long as a specific condition is met. In order to keep receiving these funds, Planned Parenthood needs to cease with their abortion practices entirely.
CBS News reports that President Trump stated, “I am pro-life and I am deeply committed to investing in women’s health and plan to significantly increase federal funding in support of non-abortion services such as cancer screenings.”
Trump went on, “Polling shows the majority of Americans oppose public funding for abortion…There is an opportunity for organizations to continue the important work they do in support of women’s health, while not providing abortion services.”
The President of the popular woman’s organization, Cecile Richards, released an announcement that repeated Planned Parenthood’s dedication to female health as the organization encounters opposition from right-wing political figures that are pro-life.
Richards claimed, “we will always stand for women’s ability to make decisions about their health…without interference from politicians…”. Planned Parenthood’s President went on, “For many patients, Planned Parenthood is the only health care provider they see.”
In a remark to ABC News, she said that there had been hardly anything different about the President’s recent condition.
“We are glad that the White House understands that taking away the preventive care Planned Parenthood provides is deeply unpopular and would be a disaster for women’s health care.”
From NPR’s reporting, the nationwide women’s organization annually obtains around half a billion dollars in government assistance. That adds up to more than one-third of its overall cash flow.
Only a small amount of Planned Parenthood’s finances are dedicated to providing abortions, according to NPR. Their report discovered that 3% of Planned Parenthood’s proceeds are applied towards its abortion assistance.
Over 3/4 of the organization’s treatments are affiliated with birth control, cancer tests, infection-related problems, and STDs/STIs.
