Public Is Against The Defunding Of Planned Parenthood
The Republicans still want to cut funding to Planned Parenthood, and with a Republican now in the White House, they may finally be able to do it. But if they do, it will be against the wishes of a huge majority of Americans.
When just asked the question -- Should Planned Parenthood be cut off from government funding? -- a significant majority of 62% said "no". And when asked if that funding should be cut if none of it was used for abortions, that number rose to a whopping 80%. Well, guess what. No government funds provided for Planned Parenthood are used to provide any abortions -- and it's been that way for years.
The Republicans won't admit it, but they got it into law years ago that no government funds could be used for abortions -- and all of the funding given to Planned Parenthood goes to the other 97% of their work (providing health care for women). Defunding Planned Parenthood won't prevent a single abortion, but it would keep some women from being able to access badly needed health care.
The defunding is just another bit of GOP political theater, aimed at placating the right-wing fundamentalists in their party. It actually has nothing to do with preventing abortions.
The charts above are from a recent Quinnipiac University Poll -- done between January 20th and 25th of a random national sample of 1,190 voters, with a margin of error of 2.8 points.
