How can they even think of defunding PP? It is ruthless and callous to even mention defunding PP! They plug so many holes in the healthcare system that they should be allocated MORE!! They take care of SO MUCH MORE THAN ABORTION! That is a minuscule part of their budgetary allocation!!!
They don't "just" do abortions! If they weren't serving women everywhere, ther would be so many unintended pregnanciess, and so much more! Women go to them for breast exams, pelvic exams, Pap smears and more! Some women don't ever have a chance to see a doctor, ever! And before you jump on the ACA train, some women's deductibles are so expensive, they can't afford to go to a regular doctor. Or some women live in a state that doesn't have a state exchange to get the ACA!!!!! They are left to find a provider however they can!!!!!!

Noted. Thanks, Freya.
I support Planned Parenthood with a monthly donation. Wish I could give more.
I would (secretly) like to double the prices men pay for the health care of their male anatomy. AND, I think Viagra and the other "male enhancement drugs" should be outlawed. Guess I'm getting a bit mean in my old age......

Just what is wrong in using aborted fetuses in stem cell research? It could lead to advances in health care for many illnesses. Hey, even someone like Justin might one day benefit from the research!

.BTW, abortions are about 3% of the work they do - an infinitesimal amount.

I'm sorry to see that people are willing to believe propaganda films about Planned Parenthood concocted by people with an extreme agenda. It's worth having a look at FactCheck for this - and indeed for anything else we see on the Net - before rushing to judgment.
