Outside of cases of rape, incest or to protect the life of the mother, as paid by Medicaid, what percent of federal funding for planned parenthood pays for abortions?

Love these poll choices, shows how much you are willing to listen to differing opinions and why we can't have rational discussion anymore.

Someone's answer choices shows their superficial "knowledge" of business economics...

Absolute BS. The tax money is used as substitute money for funds that would normally be used on non-abortion activities.

They should separate their services. Two separate companies.

Planned Parenthood which offers your 97% of services and

Unplanned Parenthood that offered your 3% of services

Why? It would literally be exactly the same.

With separate budgets so then nobody could complain about government funded abortions

It's already like that. Not a dime of gov't money is spent on abortions. You get an abortion, you must pay for it.

Getup: your information is not correct. Please try real news sources and stop your obvious bias

But their killing babies for wholesale!!

So they refer a women to an abortionist who in turn kills the baby and returns it to PP for sale? Top execs in PP admit they deal with parts. Where did they get them?

Do you have a counter source or fact to debunk this lie? Or just strong determined delusions?

Did you see the videos at all? You think they were actors? Why wouldn't baby killers want to peddle the carcass for cash?

How much finding helps planned parenthood at all? It's not about what funds abortions, it's about total tax cost

That's just silly.

It's silly that I care where tax dollars are being spent?

It's silly to not understand the benefit those tax dollars being spent at planned parenthood provides.

I understand, I still don't want it spent. It's one of the many things that should be cut to significantly lower out tax budget.

Blue, let's get outraged about the billions our govt waste annually instead of going after a program that actually does

I am outraged at all of the waste. This is just the one being discussed in this poll.

Paying for contraceptives is much cheaper than paying for welfare and food stamps latter on.

bluerum29 optimistic idealist
08/06/15 7:18 am

Shouldn't pay for either. If they don't want a baby don't get pregnant.

08/06/15 7:34 am

How can you possibly compare 25 billion spent annually to maintain vacant federal properties to funding a program that provides cancer screening and other life saving procedures to millions of women?

bluerum29 optimistic idealist

I was never comparing them. This discussion was only about one of them. Do I think money needs to be reigned in on a lot of things, yes. That doesn't an all of those things are equal.

The amount of unplanned pregnancies, the spread of STDs and the cost incurred treating them, not to mention the increase of abortions would all be a higher debt to society without PP.

Those things should be stopped without using tax payer funds. People need to be taught better and use more common sense.

"People need to be taught better"

What is it you think they do at Planned Parenthood? They provide information; educate. It would cost the taxpayers a whole lot more without them.

I mean by parents. That is who is responsible.

So, in your dream scape, defunding PP is going to magically create parents who thoroughly educate their children about all aspects of sexuality because that is what existed before PP?

bluerum29 optimistic idealist

There is no magic, but we have to work at the heart of the problem. Better parents would help a lot of our societies problems. And I will continue to be against paying for something I 1. Shouldn't have to and B. Don't agree with. If they can afford

To go to a movie as a teenager or afford a car, they damn well can afford their own fucking condoms.
