State Senators Tommy Williams and Bob Deuell have put in a budget proposal that would remove funds from going to Planned Parenthood in order to divert that money to organizations that provide more comprehensive care for women.
Many reasons why this is a good idea: Planned Parenthood is a non-profit that receives more than 40 million from the State of Texas, yet somehow ends up with a profit at the end of the year. Planned Parenthood has a problem with allowing minors to obtain abortions without notifying law enforcement in obvious cases of statutory rape.
Planned Parenthood is also the largest provider of abortions nationwide and worldwide, which makes the quote from the Planned Parenthood of North Texas Communications Director, Holly Morgan, all the more interesting. She says, "If they don't want people to get abortions, they should be helping us, not hurting us."
So in other words, in order to reduce the numbers of abortions, we need to increase the amount of money going to the organization that does the most number of abortions.
Clearly I see how this will help.
