Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, has uncovered a new reason why Planned Parenthood can’t be shut down, and it relies on a poll by the totally unbiased National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA).
Sen. Joni Ernst is sponsoring legislation that looks to strip funding from Planned Parenthood — which Planned Parenthood argues doesn’t go toward providing abortions but for birth control and women’s health — and give it to women’s health providers that don’t perform abortions.
Clare Coleman, NFPRHA, says that Ernst’s proposal “demonstrates a lack of respect for and understanding of the preventive health needs of the millions of individuals who rely on [Planned Parenthood] as their usual, and oftentimes sole, source of health care,” like Hollywood actress Ashley Judd does.
“In many communities,” Coleman continues, “there are not other health care providers that would be equipped to fill the void created by the prohibition of funding for a qualified, trusted family planning provider.”
Not even if all of those taxpayer dollars going to an organization caught harvesting organs were freed up?
But what about all of those life-saving services that Planned Parenthood provides?
