Defunding planned parenthood will remove access to WOMENS healthcare. I am an ARMY SPOUSE who has had to go to planned parenthood for a women's health issue while I was traveling. It was not the first time I visited planned parenthood. While between jobs and insurances I have visited planned parenthood. Without them I would have MISSED my medication, birth control, which I use solely to keep my endometriosis (an extremely painful disease) at bay. Defunding planned parenthood because you are against abortion is like having sex to promote abstinence.
