Critics say Pa. bill would defund Planned Parenthood

That includes filing a lawsuit to block the legislature's new abortion-related laws.

Trump signed that law on April 12. Exceptions are made for pregnancies due to rape or incest and cases that endanger the woman's life.

John Eichelberger, the bill's prime sponsor, told that Planned Parenthood would receive less funding because it provides fewer service options than other healthcare centers and that "we shouldn't have them in a system that they're not pulling their weight".

"They (Planned Parenthood) don't do lots of things that families need, women need", Eichelberger said.

Thanks for your continued support.


News Busters reports tht on Wednesday, the Center for Medial Progress (CMP) released its latest undercover video: "Planned Parenthood "Lamborghini" Exec Haggles Again Over Baby Parts Prices". As a board member of Planned Parenthood Association of Utah, I know the best way to decrease abortions is for them to be safe and legal, for contraception to be affordable and accessible, and for reproductive education to be accurate and comprehensive.

Eichelberger said Wednesday he believed Planned Parenthood clinics that now receive the funds in question would continue to be eligible for public funds, because they don't provide abortion services on site.

Sari Stevens, executive director of Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates, says the bill would prevent Planned Parenthood from receiving Medicaid reimbursements.

"This is a reduction of health services in communities, not an expansion", said Sen.

Meanwhile, Pence fares even worse when compared to Planned Parenthood, his longtime nemesis.

As a leader in restricting abortion access, Missouri passed laws more than a decade ago that required doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at local hospitals and abortion clinics to meet the same structural requirements as ambulatory surgical centers.

Passage of Eichelberger's bill, it must be noted, is no sure thing in the face of a promised vote from Gov. Tom Wolf.

"Last time I checked resources from Pennsylvania were not provided [for abortions], so we have conflicting answers as to why this legislation is necessary", Costa said.

Another abortion-related proposal was inserted in a budget bill.

The Republican-controlled Senate Finance Committee approved the bill 7-5.

Well, it won't. The repeated assertions that Planned Parenthood patients would be seamlessly absorbed by the already overburdened health care safety net in Pennsylvania are simply false.

If the issue was truly with the scope of services, then there's no reason to base the bill on an abortion disqualifier, Democrats said.
