    Indeed. The government does have that power to fund or not fund as they choose.

    And in this case, it's a bad idea to not fund Planned Parenthood.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    No private organization or charity should get public funding ever. If you want to help a charity get your wallet out and help them. Doing it with public funds just destroys the balance amongst charities and puts governments interests into the mix.

    Where did Nixon breach the Constitution on this issue? (Keep in mind....I don't really care. I'm pointing out the utter hypocrisy from the Anti-Choice crowd that has falsely been using the Pro-Life label)
    My main function as a Christian is to be the biggest possible jerk as a demonstration of the awe found in God's Grace and Forgiveness. (That love part comes in to play at some point)

    Last I checked, abortions accounted for only 3% of PP's activities.

    Again, the funding will go to clinics that do not offer abortion services. PP is an abortion provider, all the more reason for them to get zero public funding.

    Find me where the power is granted. Can you? No.

    Because it's good public policy on an incredible variety of levels even though to do so requires mutualization of the costs involved.

    For example, by paying for the mutualization of the cost of birth control, women can have children only when they are financially stable for it. Which means they can better bear the costs of raising a children themselves. Which means those women are less likely to require welfare in order to take care of their children.

    And the mutualization of the cost of birth control is much less than the mutualization of the cost of welfare to those children.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Eliminate welfare and the problem you created is solved. After all, its also a breach of the Constitution.

    And since when did two wrongs make a right? If it's left turns you need at least three. :P

    And the mutualization of the cost of birth control is much less than the mutualization of the cost of welfare to those children.
    Already gave you the solution to the problem government created. Done.
