Planned parenthood has egg on it's face and may lose all federal funding. As I keep saying, in the words of feminists ..."Go build your own"....and fund it too.

Antiabortion groups argue that Planned Parenthood is vulnerable. They contend that the organization has been losing community support, reflected in a decline in the number of affiliate clinics - from 938 to 785 - since 1995.
So maybe some people do not like their services and do not wish to pay for them by force. As BQ says, FUND YOURSELF that way nobody can cut you off.

Planned Parenthood [...] receives $363 million from federal, state, and local governments

[...] 785 affiliate clinics


That comes to $462,420/affiliate clinic. Nice sum, considering that they - supposedly - don't get it for providing abortions...  :rolle:

I do know planned parenthood provides a lot of necessary reproductive health for women besides abortions.  I think this is a wonderful thing and very needed in poorer communities.

My issues are: 1. They are female only, which should preclude them from federal funding and 2. They provide abortions which should preclude them from federal funding. 3. They were started as a form of eugenics, which should make minorities really look at the 'services' they provide. 

If they wish to provide abortions, this is the consequence.

Planned Parrenthood as a non proffit organization is a sham. They are a billion dollar a year business that cooks the books to show no proffit and keep that tax status. They make abortion doctors millionaires, non-proffit my ass.
