    I say no. People who want PP defunded believe so not because they are anti-women, but pro-children.

    Not only are they anti-women, they are also anti-family, in my opinion. Planned Parenthood deals with many issues around woman health.

    It's not anti-women to want to defund PP. It's because I support womens' rights that I want to see them born. The federal government should defund every organization that provides for abortions. There are other places people can go if they need contraception or crisis pregnancy care.

    I believe abortions are anti-family as it kills an unborn family member. Contraception ends at conception, and unplanned pregnancy doesn't justify an abortion even if contraception fails. A woman can go other places to receive healthcare. Many things like mammograms and other "services" of PP are not preformed there and merely refer women other places.

    No they aren't "anti-women" Im not even sure what that term means, but they may selective in their standards and a little paranoid. By selective i mean the fact that no federal funds go to PP's abortion operations, although a common argument is that while they don't fund it directly they do free up more of PP's funds which potentially, and undoubtably are sometimes, used for abortions. But you could use that same argument for literally ANYTHING, heck lets say there's a female employee at Boeing who wants to get an abortion, the gov't contracts Boeing to make a new plane, Boeing pays the employee, woman gets an abortion!! Its indirect payment but the money ultimately came from the gov't.

    Not so at all. If they only did "women's health issues" and not abortion, I wouldn't care the slightest. You know the problem is the controversial abortion part of PP. Don't pretend that everyone who wants to defund PP wants women to get cervical cancer. That's just stupid.

    Women who want abortions, pay PP for them, the government doesn't fund the. See the Hyde amendment!

    I find people amusing who only care about the health of people before they are born. They tend to be the same people who want to cut the health programs for those that have already been born.

    No, it's an outright lie. In fact I'm not sure that everyone who wants to defund it is even pro-life.
    They are corrupt-fraudulant and questionable claims to Medicare, Medicaid
    Racist- Will take donations and promise to specify the money for black baby abortions.
    Break the law by telling teens to lie about age
    Break the laws by telling minors to lie about the father of the baby's age.
    Telling sex trafficers of minors all the info they need for getting std, bc, abortions etc for their"girls"
    Mislead on their website and media by saying that only 3% of their services is for abortions. "such a teeny weeny number"
    Though 3% is true, so is the fact that 12% of all of their clients get an abortion and way over ninety% of their pregnant clients get abortions rather opt to keep or opt to adopt.
    There's more cases of sleaziness I'm sure. Anyway,
    I think women deserve better than what PP has to offer, and others should too.
