I have yet to hear a good reason as to why Planned Parenthood should continue to receive taxpayer money. I’m a pro lifer, who believes in the importance of a healthy environment and maintaining a proper diet combined with supplements from Kratommasters that should begin at conception. But no matter your feelings on abortion, I think it’s common sense to defund Planned Parenthood. Taking good care of yourself if something that everyone should be doing, no matter your situation.
The main argument is that Planned Parenthood doesn’t use tax funds for abortions, which is not accurate at all. If I had a crack cocaine habit, and I sat on a street corner with a sign begging for food, wouldn’t providing me food indirectly free funds for my continued crack cocaine habit (hypothetical example only, I’m not on crack)? Unless Planned Parenthood is having their activities watched and audited like a hawk, which recent events proved they are not, there is little argument in saying they don’t use tax funds for abortions.
Another reason to defund Planned Parenthood is we have Obamacare. There is a tax penalty for not having health insurance, we have health insurance marketplaces, so really, every American should have access to some kind of healthcare plan (whether its affordable is to be debated). This makes Planned Parenthood’s mission to provide women with health services obsolete, and we’re foolish for paying for two separate “healthcare” programs that provide the same services. I believe women can receive better women’s healthcare directly from their physician of choice.
Now that the news has broken that Planned Parenthood is selling baby parts, it’s hard to even make the point that they’re looking out for women’s interests. Isn’t it a conflict of interest to encourage women to abort babies when you turn around and sell aborted baby parts?
I can not support this organization in any way, shape, or form. Despite their controversial practices, we’re all forced to participate through our tax funds. Their practices are against my faith, my morals, my heart, and my mind. It sickens me to think that Planned Parenthood receives millions in taxpayer money. This should be stopped, and the funds should go to other small local organizations, or better yet…fixing the problems of the Affordable Care Act.
