Women’s Law Project Statement on Proposal to Defund Planned Parenthood

wlpReposted from Women’s Law Project

President Trump’s reported threat to defund Planned Parenthood unless the organization stops providing safe, legal abortion care is the epitome of pro-life hypocrisy. Just last year, the president himself admitted that Planned Parenthood’s low-cost healthcare helps “millions and millions” of women, and yet he is willing to deprive those women of lifesaving care in order to further an ideological agenda that would, if implemented, endanger women’s lives.

As Planned Parenthood officials clarified while reportedly rejecting this proposition, federal money is already restricted from funding abortion.

As we will clarify, again: abortion is healthcare. We stand with Planned Parenthood, and we join them in condemning this latest attempt to score political points by risking women’s lives.

We demand evidence-based healthcare, including equal access to safe, legal abortion. We won’t go back.

The Women’s Law Project is the only public interest law center in Pennsylvania devoted to advancing the rights of women and girls.
