Women need Planned Parenthood

Clegg said three out of four ME voters support Planned Parenthood.

Donald Trump has said he will continue funding Planned Parenthood if it stops providing abortions, prompting a swift rejection from the reproductive health organisation. Low-income women would be most affected by the proposal, according to Vox, since Medicaid recipients typically earn far below the federal poverty line.

In a statement on Tuesday, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards doubled-down on the organization's position.

The cries to defund Planned Parenthood are reaching a fever pitch and now the organization is closer than ever to losing its federal funding. Trump also said a year ago Planned Parenthood serves many important functions and does "very good work for millions of women" but should no longer provide abortions.

"The Affordable Care Act has saved thousands of Mainers from losing their lives or going bankrupt simply because they got sick", Pingree said.

Defunding Planned Parenthood isn't about stopping abortions since govt. doesn't pay for that, it's about controlling women & their sexuality.

Planned Parenthood provides cancer screenings, including mammograms and Pap smears, birth control, abortions, and testing for sexually transmitted diseases. "For many patients, blocking access to Planned Parenthood, to their healthcare providers, means blocking access to their only access to care".

Should the organization be defunded, Planned Parenthood has warned that the majority of its 2.5 million patients would not be able to receive the care they need at the price they can afford, and that some clinics could close. Call it $7 to account for a little growth between 2015 (the latest Planned Parenthood annual report available) and 2017.

In a statement issued on Monday, Trump reiterated his pro-life stance and said that he was willing to increase federal funding for women's health care services that are not related to abortion.

In fact, the Congressional Budget Office has estimated that defunding Planned Parenthood would cost taxpayers $130 million over 10 years. Although the Supreme Court has overturned some of its decisions, like Plessy v. Ferguson due to the unconstitutionality of the decision, it is highly unlikely that it will overturn Roe v. Wade.

"Millions and millions of women - cervical cancer, breast cancer - are helped by Planned Parenthood", Trump said during a debate last February. In response to the newspaper, Trump said polling shows most Americans oppose public funding for abortion.
