Fight brews in Pennsylvania Senate over Planned Parenthood

Fight brews in Pennsylvania Senate over Planned Parenthood”

The video comes as Republicans attempt to redirect Planned Parenthood's almost $500 million annual budget toward women's health clinics that do not perform abortions.

The measure isn't brand new to the legislature.

Eichelberger said his measure - by prioritizing funding to hospitals, public health clinics and rural health care centers - is meant to make better use of taxpayer dollars by directing recipients of publicly-funded services to facilities that provide fuller ranges of health care services.

Thanks for your continued support.

Texas House OKs 'sanctuary city' ban with tough jail penalty
Proponents of the legislation say that it is about the rule of law and ensuring law enforcement agencies follow the same policies. Meanwhile, a federal judge in San Francisco stopped President Donald Trump from withholding money from sanctuary cities .

While Eichelberger describes the legislation as a "Priorities Bill" to direct state funding, a provision clearly targets facilities that perform abortions.

Previous year alone, affiliates served almost 90,000 patients and provided nearly 170,000 screenings for sexually transmitted diseases, over 9,000 cervical cancer screenings and 11,000 breast wellness exams.

On Wednesday, the state Senate Finance Committee narrowly approved the measure by a 7-5 vote, allowing the full legislative body to consider the bill.

"So do any of these other facilities you're speaking of provide the level of education, especially around sexual education, that Planned Parenthood now provides?" 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.

Meanwhile, the California Primary Care Association has reiterated that community health centers can not absorb Planned Parenthood patients if the organization loses its funding. The legislation, Senate Bill 300, would dictate which types of health service organizations are prioritized to receive funding through the state's Department of Human Services.

Somerville's mayor is keeping score in sanctuary city battle with Trump
On Tuesday, April 25, 2017, a federal judge blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from co. It wasn't the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals that ruled against the administration on "sanctuary cities".

"We've been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I'm not gonna crush that part, I'm gonna basically crush below, I'm gonna crush above, and I'm gonna see if I can get it all intact", she said. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has vowed to veto the bill if it reaches his desk.

Costa said Planned Parenthood performs 270,000 pap smears and 360,000 breast exams annually, on average. Ending Planned Parenthood funding won't end women's health care.

"I hear that nearly daily from citizens", Eichelberger added.

The Novogenix contract promises Planned Parenthood Los Angeles $45 "per donated specimen".

That bill has moved to the House, which has not begun consideration of it yet but did pass similar language a year ago.
