  • Planned Parenthood health centers consistently perform better than other types of publicly funded family planning providers," Ann M. Starrs, the president and CEO of the Guttmacher Institute, wrote in an opinion piece for CNN last week. (
  • It is simply not feasible for other safety net providers that are often already stretched thin to quickly step up and provide timely, high-quality contraceptive care to the many women who might suddenly be unable to obtain care if their local Planned Parenthood has been shut down. (
  • A new report on the bill from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that approximately 15 percent of people currently on Medicaid who visit Planned Parenthood clinics would lose access to care altogether, specifically those who "reside in areas without other health care clinics or medical practitioners who serve low-income populations.

  • Truth be told, 'defund' is a bit of a misnomer when it comes to how this bill would actually affect Planned Parenthood. (
  • But how federal funding is given to Planned Parenthood is a bit more complicated than the government simply allocating a lump sum for the health care provider in the annual budget. (

  • The data was also pulled from information Planned Parenthood had already provided, so it wasn't as if this was newly sought out. (
  • Williams responded to the attacks last week by accusing Planned Parenthood of trying to vilify his agency for doing its job, Courthouse News reports . (
