Will Planned Parenthood Be Defunded in Separate Bill?

Will Planned Parenthood Be Defunded in Separate Bill?

"That's why Governor Malloy felt strongly it was important to include a provision in his budget to address a shortfall should federal dollars be restricted".

Matt House, Schumer's spokesman, told the Post that "the tweet referenced the fact that each year Planned Parenthood doctors and nurses provide referrals for women to receive mammograms and hundreds of thousands more receive breast exams at Planned Parenthood clinics". Thus, federal funds do not even get used for abortion services indirectly.

A Republican bill to replace the Affordable Care Act released this week includes a section stipulating that any agency that provides abortions other than in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother can not receive federal reimbursement through Medicaid.

Maggie Haberman of The New York Times claims the White House made an "informal pitch", suggesting PP could still get federal funding if it stops doing abortions.

But the major question at this point is whether cut-off of Planned Parenthood's tax dollars is contained through the new healthcare legislation created to replace Obamacare or in a separate measure altogether. "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".

"We are not the federal government, nor do we have the resources of the federal government", he said.

Details of Malloy's exact plan are not clear yet, but the state is already facing a deficit of $1.7 million.

As a Planned Parenthood patient in Ithaca, New York, I know from personal experience that these health centers play a vital role in our state. Without it, some 2.5 million people will lose access to reproductive health care, and unplanned pregnancies and abortions - at their lowest levels in decades - may rise, they said.

Six of those CEOs earn more than $400,000 a year, and one over a half million dollars.

In a statement regarding the matter, Richards indicated that Planned Parenthood would not back down and would continue its commitment to providing the full scope of women's health services. I, like many others, chose Planned Parenthood as my first choice provider because they provide high-quality and nonjudgmental care. Planned Parenthood promptly turned down that offer. "Planned Parenthood takes lives", said Peter Wolfgang, executive director of the Family Institute of CT.

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

Most controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood is based on the abortion services they provide.

In a recent Marist poll, results show that 61 percent of Americans oppose the funding of abortion using taxpayer's money.
