Some people state that their tax dollars should not go toward the Medicaid funds that go to Planned Parenthood--but I cannot keep my tax dollars from funding corporate tax breaks, military actions or salaries of representatives that do not vote to represent me. Planned Parenthood provides essential services to women & communities that are unavailable elsewhere. My community has a Catholic affiliated hospital & clinic system that does not provide birth control information or services. When questions about this come up in medical appointments I have been told that I will need to go to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood also provides HIV/STD services to low income folks & other healthcare services. A woman's right to reproductive choices is a Constitutional Right. Not allowing Medicaid reimbursement for healthcare is politically motivated by those who would deny healthcare because of Planned Parenthood's stance on providing abortion even though Medicaid Does Not Pay for Abortions. Very repressive tactics that will set back women's healthcare..
