planned parenthood wants to remove limits on abortions... but goes on to say "The two lawsuits filed in Manhattan federal court said enforcing the “conscience” rule would encourage discrimination against women, minorities, the poor, the uninsured, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people by curbing access to legal healthcare procedures, including life-saving treatments." *taken from the retuters article. please tell me how a lesbian and or a transgendered person is getting pregnant on accident? I am not completely sure what queer person is but same question. Sounds like more fear mongering from an organisation that makes its money on pushing abortions.

I did not read the full article but my guess is that they're refering to more than just abortions. Much of the funding that PP gets is used for treating the poor and uninsured and treating STDs including AIDS. PP is also one of the only places an underage person can get treatment without their parents being notified. I started going there for plain old birth control and women's health exams when I was 17. Its no big deal to an adult, but to me I was really embarassed and didn't want my father knowing about it, so I was able to request that they send any mail with a discrete return address. Its these kinds of services that cater to the LGBT communities and the less fortunate. There are a lot of people who would suffer both medically and socially if PP were defunded, and most of it has nothing to do with abortions. But the people who want them defunded don't realize it affects far more then the issues they're concerned with. Sorry i got a little tangential there, bottom line, that quote is probably discussing more than just abortions.

nope it all seems to be about abortion quote "NEW YORK (Reuters) - Planned Parenthood and other nonprofits offering family planning services sued the Trump administration on Tuesday to block a new federal rule letting healthcare workers refuse abortions and other services because of religious or moral objections." end quote. Yes it says "other services" but I highly doubt that someone working for planned parenthood and or any other non profit is going to have "reglious or moral objections" on things like birth control, memograms and STD tests. Also this is such a stawman Agrument as Trump was only going to defund abortion services, the other services were never at risk.

If you don't want to become pregnant you take precautions. From those people that do take precautions how many get pregnant "by accident"? I think the numbers will be very low. I think a lot of people don't take the precautions and are not being responsible and then get pregnant "by accident" and then it's inconvenient and then want a abortion... people should be more responsible and deal with their actions, instead of killing a baby because they made bad choices.
