GOP Bill Bars Abortions by UW Doctors

Ann M. Starrs

Really? Instead they should focus their time, energy and resources educating women on the importance of family planning, specifically those who are poor, many living in rural communities with limited access to health care who are the ones using Planned Parenthood's services.

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".

In a statement on Tuesday, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards doubled-down on the organization's position. However, Trump also said throughout the election that he believes Planned Parenthood does "other good work" and that millions of women have benefited from Planned Parenthood's cancer screenings and other health services.

"Millions and millions of women - cervical cancer, breast cancer - are helped by Planned Parenthood", Trump said during a debate last February. If Republican efforts succeed, the victims will be the low-income people, both men and women, who rely on Planned Parenthood for basic health care.

Planned Parenthood's abortion procedures cover only 3 percent of their annual services. In 2015, some in the GOP threatened a government shutdown if Planned Parenthood remained a part of the federal budget.

Planned Parenthood provides care to 2.5 million people each year. Republicans argue that federal funds going to Planned Parenthood for other services, such as cancer screenings, birth control, sexually transmitted disease screenings, and more, free up the clinic's unrestricted dollars to be used for abortions.

"They're not about women's health care, it's the biggest lie since the tobacco industry said tobacco is healthy", Rose says.

American Life League took a look at federal filings for non-profits - and the group's executive director Jim Sedlak learned what he considers to be shocking information about Planned Parenthood regional executives around the country. They were given a choice to discontinue abortions and receive the funds, or do without if they continue. We have three health centers there.

Trump pointed to polling showing that most Americans do not favour federal funding for abortions.

"We can't always be there in person for events like the march in Washington", Murray said. This is why learning how to donate to Planned Parenthood is more important now than ever - because the organization's federal funding is very much at risk right now. Planned Parenthood does not submit bills for abortions.
