Obama Just Ensured PERMANENT Funding For Planned Parenthood

Smart move. Obama just took the states out of the decision making process. Fed money goes where the fed wants it to go. No more political games by politicians courting the pro-life vote.







President Obama has taken decisive steps to protect Planned Parenthood’s federal funding once and for all, dealing a decisive blow to anti-choice religious extremists and misogynist Republicans around the country who have been fighting tirelessly to destroy the beloved reproductive healthcare provider once and for all.


The Obama Administration has announced a new rule that would ban states from withholding Title X family planning funds from certain recipients for any reason other than the provider’s “ability to deliver services to program beneficiaries in an effective manner.”


“This will make a real difference in so many people’s lives. Thanks to the Obama administration, women will still be able to access the birth control they need to plan their families, and the cancer screenings they need to stay healthy!” cheered Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood. “This rule makes it clear that politicians cannot ignore the law as they pursue their agenda to stop women from getting the care they need.”


Title X funds provides basic preventative health care and family planning services for 4 million low-income Americans – funds that are, just to remind everyone, never used for abortions. As Planned Parenthood struggles to shake off the damage done by the outrageous hoax videos that religious extremists released last year, our Republican-strangled Congress and twelve states are working to strip Planned Parenthood of its funding for good. President Obama has just ensured that millions of American men and women will have access to the reproductive health they deserve.

This is a great moment in history for female reproductive rights.

Go kill you babies now liberals. Under President Trump congress will cut off all funding to PP.

I'm taking your wife down Monday to lose a few pounds. I wouldn't want you being forced to do it yourself.

 

ONLY PRESIDENT TO ABORT HIS OWN CHILD

In all fairness, this is the Republican version of the same issue:

Obama administration ‘stunt’ would force states to fund Planned Parenthood

 

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/sep/7/obama-administration-stunt-would-force-states-to-f/

The Obama administration is proposing a new rule that would require states to continue to fund Planned Parenthood, countering gains by the pro-life movement to defund the abortion provider at the local level in the wake of the undercover video investigation alleging the clinic traffics in fetal body parts from abortions.

The Department of Health and Human Services rule would prevent states from redirecting Title X funds, which are earmarked for family planning services, to other Federally Qualified Health Centers for reasons “unrelated to their ability to provide Title X services effectively.”

Rep. Diane Black, a Tennessee Republican who wrote the House-approved “Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015,” said the rule is just the latest “stunt” by the Obama administration to “protect its friends in the big abortion industry.”

“We must use the full force of Congress and the grassroots strength of the national pro-life movement to defeat this absurd rule and prevent the Obama administration from acting unilaterally to carry out political favors and prop up a scandal-ridden abortion provider,” Ms. Black said Tuesday in a statement.

Since the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress released a series of secretly recorded videos in July 2015 showing Planned Parenthood executives discussing the trade for fetal body parts, 14 states — including Texas, Ohio and North Carolina — have taken action to redirect Title X funds from the nation’s largest abortion provider.

Although new recipients meet Title X eligibility requirements, HHS says whether a clinic performs abortions or traffics in fetal body parts from them are not criteria by which determinations of funding can be made.

Additionally, because the Hyde Amendment already prevents federal dollars from being used for abortions, the agency argues, it is unreasonable to redirect Title X funds from centers that perform abortions, especially when doing so would “adversely affect accessibility of Title X services.”

“The amendment precludes project recipients from using criteria in their selection of subrecipients that are unrelated to their ability to deliver services to program beneficiaries in an effective manner,” the rule says.

Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, praised the Obama administration rule as one that will make “a real difference in so many people’s lives.”

“Women in nearly half the states in the country have faced political attacks on cancer screenings, birth control, and other basic care,” Ms. Richards said in a statement last week. “This rule makes it clear that politicians cannot ignore the law as they pursue their agenda to stop women from getting the care they need.”

Once the comment period begins, the agency will consider revisions to the rule for 30 days before issuing final regulations.

The Obama administration previously has employed similar reasoning to protect Planned Parenthood from accountability at the local level.

In April the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services issued a directive to states informing them that providing “the full range of women’s health services” is not a legitimate reason to strip an entity of Medicaid funding.

The administration also has directly subsidized abortion providers in several states where federal dollars were redirected to other certified clinics that do not perform abortions.

In 2013, for instance, the Department of Health and Human Services directly gave $13 million in Title X funding to a coalition of abortion providers in Texas after the state passed a law redirecting public dollars to clinics that do not perform abortions.

Maureen Ferguson, senior policy adviser for The Catholic Association, said the new HHS rule is just the latest effort by the Obama administration to fund abortion providers at all costs.

“The Obama administration is once again unilaterally trampling on the rights of conscientious citizens and of states that object to their taxpayer funds flowing to the nation’s largest chain of abortion clinics, Planned Parenthood,” Ms. Ferguson said in a statement.

Did you know that only abortions count for 3% of the procedures done at PP>?

They know that already. They just don't care.

 

Because our DEMOCRATIC country ruled that abortion is legal, they are trying to prevent women from getting them through corrupt, dishonest, treasonous and immoral actions.

 

You know what contempt cons have for American democracy.

So why don't they stop, if they want to continue receiving government funding?

 

But congratulations for perpetuating what the Ultra-Conservative Slate Magazine called "The Most Meaningless Abortion Statistic Ever".

Too bad Planned Parenthood doesn't report revenue by procedures. I guess those numbers would be harder to obfuscate.

Imagine the stupidity and arrogance of someone defending aboriton by calling people opposing her "corrupt, dishonest, treasonous and immoral".

As if the left HAS any morals.

It's not useless if its true. PP actually provides a lot of assistance with STDs, Birth control, Pre-natal and Post Natal care.

That's 3% too high

What if the mother's life is in danger. child birth fatalities are still occurring.

But the number you quoted is a lie. Why do liberals lie if the facts are on their side of an argument?

About 80 percent of Planned Parenthood’s users are over age 20, and 75 percent have incomes below 150 percent of the poverty line.

Planned Parenthood itself estimates it prevents more than 620,000 unintended pregnancies each year, and 220,000 abortions.

It’s also worth noting that federal law already forbids Planned Parenthood from using the funds it receives from the government for abortions.

So though the fight over Planned Parenthood might be about abortion, Planned Parenthood itself isn’t about abortion. It’s primarily about contraception and reproductive health.

And if Planned Parenthood loses funding, what will mainly happen is that cancer screenings and contraception and STD testing will become less available to poorer people. Folks with more money, of course, have many other ways to receive all these services, and tend to get them elsewhere already.

The fight also isn’t about cutting spending. The services Planned Parenthood provides save the federal government a lot of money.

It’s somewhat cold to put it in these terms, but taxpayers end up bearing a lot of the expense for unintended pregnancies among people without the means to care for their children.

The same goes for preventable cancers and sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV/AIDS. You can find a lot more information about Planned Parenthood and its services here.

First, their abortion rate is closer to 350,000 / year, and there is no way to determine how many "unwanted pregnancies" they "prevent".

Why do liberals have to lie, if they have the facts on their side?


"It might not be a technically incorrect number."
