Planned Parenthood

By Shasta Curtis

“Yes, because as long as they do the abortion I am not for funding Planned Parenthood, but they do cervical cancer work. They do a lot of good things for women but as long as they’re involved with the abortions, as you know they say it’s 3% of their work, some people say it’s 10%, some people say it’s 8%, I hear all different percentages but it doesn’t matter. As long as they’re involved with abortion, as far as I’m concerned forget it, I wouldn’t fund them regardless. But they do do other good work. You look at cervical cancer. I’ve had women tell me they do some excellent work, so I think you also have to put that into account, but I would defund Planned Parenthood because of their view and the fact of their work on abortion.” Trump said all of this during an interview which was released on February 18, 2016.  Trump preceded to do what he said by signing his 3rd executive order on January 24 to defund planned parenthood.

Many on twitter have agreed with Trump’s decision on the defunding! Many say abortion is murder. The raise questions like: “Why is it when you kill a pregnant lady it’s considered murdering 2 human beings, but it’s “OK” to abort an unborn child?” Many tweet saying that the defining terminology is a good idea stating: “No one is stopping you from the use of birth control, but why should we pay for it?”

There are some claiming: “their body their rights.” And arguments appear on various tweets.  The restaurant Chili has announced in two states they will take 15% profit to help fund those in need on planned parenthood in Kentucky and Indiana.
Some have said that will completely do away with eating at the Chili franchise for the time being because their actions help fund abortions.

Twitter friend Laura claims she picks babies over burgers.

My friend Katie Smith’s personal view about the topic is she sees that ”Defunding planned parenthood is atrocious. Not only is it one way that women can afford birth control, it’s also there to help check for STDS, HIV, cervical & ovarian cancer and for men, they can check for testicular cancer. I think planned parenthood is one of the most profitable government affiliated agencies because it’s only there for the health of Americans citizens. Unlike every other country in the world, Americans don’t understand healthcare and they don’t understand that birth control is used for more ways just than safe sex.”  ALSO people think planned parenthood is for abortions. This is wrong.  Planned Parenthood is only responsible for 3% of abortions in the United States! And she would like to add she is indeed a feminist!
