Now, I agree with you that there are other private and/or state-sponsored organizations that also provide abortion services, but just people were wrongly arguing about states receiving federal funding for abortion per the PPACA, the same holds true here. In other words, state funding for abortions follow their own laws where who pays for abortions just as the PPACA restricts federal funding for abortions. In the patient wants to have one, she has to come out of pocket to pay for it. So, unless you've seen Planned Parenthoods financial records, you don't know with absolute certainty that Planned Parenthood uses federal dollars to finance abortions. However, we do know that they are a "family planning organization that receives federal dollars to provide many of the services they provide to the public." I think we all can agree that such a statement is true. But until you see how those federal funds are utilized and/or disbursed, any such claim for directly funding abortions is just that...speculation and right-wing rhetoric.
So, the question I have for everyone who has a heartburn with Planned Parenthood and the abortion question: "Have you seen their books?" The summary brief I linked to and pulled figures from shows the organization's financial breakdown per services rendered, but nowhere does it illustrate how dollars received from this financial contributor or that one were actually used. Splitting hairs you say? Well, isn't this the exact same argument used concerning campaign contributions? Personally speaking, I don't see the difference. Hypocricy is hypocricy and is . Bottom line: Don't let misinformation and distortion of the facts cloud your judgment.
