Should the government continue to fund Planned Parenthood?


Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organisation that provides reproductive health services in the United States and internationally. In 2014, federal and state governments provided the organisation with $528 million in funding (40% of its annual budget). The majority of this funding comes from Medicaid which subsidies reproductive healthcare for low-income women. In 2014, abortions accounted for 3% of the services they provided. The majority of the other services include screening for and treating sexually transmitted diseases and infections and providing contraception. Proponents of funding argue that federal funding for Planned Parenthood does not pay for abortions and that the vast majority of government funding that the organisation receives is through Medicaid reimbursements. Opponents of funding argue that the government should not fund any organisations that provide abortions
