Planned Parenthood president on GOP health care plan

Lauren Cerruto, a volunteer with the organization, said she was concerned with a Republican plan that would completely defund Planned Parenthood as part of its promised repeal of the Affordable Care Act. And Planned Parenthood does get $500 million from the federal government for clinics nationwide, most of which comes from Medicaid reimbursement, but none of that money goes for abortions.

So what does a future without that half a billion dollars look like for the organization that is the sole health provider for millions of men and women? Though Jacobson herself does not receive services at Planned Parenthood, she said many community members that she cares about do.

"I think Planned Parenthood is in jeopardy and that means millions of low-income women in particular, their lives, their health, [and] the health of their children is in jeopardy", Clark said.

Meanwhile, in his usual fashion, Trump did not directly confirm the story.

He also went on to point out the new healthcare proposal backed by the House Republican leadership and endorsed by President Trump "would allow greater access for women to healthcare in greater numbers of facilities across this land".

Planned Parenthood swiftly rejected Monday a proposal by President Donald Trump that would have pledged his support for federal funding for the women's health organization if it ceased providing abortion services.

Planned Parenthood has declined an offer from President Trump to keep - and possibly increase - its federal funding in exchange for ceasing to commit abortions.

Rod to J-Rod? Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriquez Are Dating
In fact, speculations are saying that Affleck even reached out to Jennifer Lopez to cast her in the 2016 film "Live by Night". When asked what his favorite and least favorite J.Lo songs were, he said, "I really don't know any of them".

It is pertinent to mention that Trump, who just called himself "pro-life", has flip-flopped on the matter several times in the past.

I understand completely the moral opposition some people have to abortion. I hate it. I hate everything it stands for.

On Wednesday morning, House Speaker Paul Ryan held a press conference in D.C.to address unpopular changes that House Republicans are proposing to the Affordable Care Act ― and in so doing, managed to brag about how great defunding Planned Parenthood would be.

One thing seems certain: Abortion is an issue that includes Americans of good conscience on either side.

Coincidentally, most of these pro-life activists with religious agendas at hand are the ones opposed to having extensive sexual education in the schools. The majority of people who take advantage of these services are below the federal poverty line.

"The Trump administration needs to stop playing political games that would put access to the full range of safe reproductive care at risk, or they will get the fight of their lives", she remarked.
