    WoooSH!
    No it's not. If a woman comes in for an abortion, that $ would not take anything away from their general operating funds. Ever, under current financial structuring. It implies that PP WOULD pay for her abortion if there werent separate funds for abortion. According to current law, they would not.

    You mean like receptionist salaries, electric bills, office furniture,heating/ac???

    Come on, they provide many many services to women, including education. And most of that education is all about preventing pregnancy in the first place...i.e. less abortions.

    Even without providing abortions services, they would have to have all those things...and would...anyway.

    it's a % increase. You could apply it equally across all operations if you wanted to use that theoretical, but the only place to know is to take the funding away and then see what they cut.

    You and I both know that the "pro-life" movement is not at all about preventing abortions. It never has been, and it never will be. The evidence for this is legion. For example, if "pro-lifers" really cared about reducing the number of abortions, then they would be passionate supporters of affordable birth control and comprehensive sex ed. Yet they have become antagonists of both. I wonder why this is?

    You do? Great! Then I am sure you support Obama's childcare initiatives that he announced in the SOTU, plus other measures that support the lives and well-being of children and their parents. Right?

    Hey, I'm all in favor of reducing the number of abortions, IF it is done by proactively addressing the root causes of abortion and not reactively making it harder and harder for women to obtain abortions.

    My my my, those GOP members have been busy creating jobs bill after jobs bill, but managed to write legislation to overturn Roe v Wade,
    then they decided to kill their own bill because they didn't want to offend female GOP members. Hypocrites.

    What morons.
    wasting taxpayer time money writing stupid bills, no wonder the congress has a low favorability rating.
    I think that just shows that the GOP no longer runs on principle or morals. The GOP needs to be defunded.
