    The act of defunding Planned Parenthood is anti-woman.
    What makes you think defunding automatically means they will close down?

    You think we should try the same defunding experiment with the funding for the "war on terror", or the military? It doesn't automatically mean they will close down afterall.

    Without funding fewer women can be served.

    They can go somewhere else. We shouldn't fund institutions that provide abortions. If anything, we could relocate those funds to another organization or create a new organization that specializes in meeting women's health needs that does not provide for abortions.

    With all the supporters of planned parenthood, liberals, wealthy people, the hollywood elite, they could maybe increase their donations and ratchet up their fund raisers. They just had a big one not long ago. Maybe they can make it an annual thing.
    Making up one third of their funding is a lot. However, if it's so important I don't see why it can't be done. Liberals are so intelligent and all that, can't they figure out a way?

    And, yet, Republicans didn't offer any of those alternatives. More important, women's full health services ultimately always must include abortion — it's a tragic but sometimes inescapable part of having a uterus. The goal should not in be eliminating all abortions but in making it as rare as humanly possible through education and prevention of unwanted pregnancies — precisely what Planned Parenthood is all about.

    Presumably wealthy pro-choice Americans could alter their gifting priorities to make up the difference but of course their other charitable causes, some of which you may support, would suffer the reduction.

    More important the federal government in funding these programs is acting to “provide for the … general Welfare of the United States.” That an contracting organization provides other legal services should not be a limiting issue.

    Any hope?? We're talking about women who are capable of making their own decisions. They don't need your evangelizing help.

    just let them go to PP and get the damn abortion and to hell will the life that is growing inside her.
    Like I said, women can make their own decisions.

    At least the people at PP won't mention the word God, or faith, or hope, or charity.
    Too bad that 72% of women who have abortions have a religious affiliation. They already know about God.

    Yea, I can see how evil those CPC's are, at least the ones who are funded by churches.

    Keep them all in court wasting money that would have been spent helping mothers and babies.
    Let me give you a hint: Your superior attitude does not match your obvious ignorance and small mindedness.

    Sorry, I do not believe that's what that clause means.

    There are many people who don't donate to federally funded non profits. They don't think it's necessary. Defund them and maybe the donations will come flooding in. Who knows.

    Throwing off our responsibility is not the answer. We don't provide funding for abortions, and abortions are legal.
