Abortion foes cheer series of advances, as opponents protest

Abortion foes cheer series of advances, as opponents protest

Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards gave a damning verdict on the Republicans' healthcare bill to repeal and replace Obamacare on Thursday, claiming: "Being a woman is going to be now a pre-existing condition in this country". Planned Parenthood has always been a recipient of Medicaid and Title X funds, and in many places, it is the primary health care provider for low-income women.

Politico reports that Collins and Murkowski "both oppose the bill's attempts to defund Planned Parenthood", which is a primary health care provider for millions of women and low-income Americans. "It makes it harder to prevent unintended pregnancy, harder to have a healthy pregnancy, and harder to raise a family".

This is not a drill. I am thankful that Vermont has a Congressman and Senators that really listen to the needs of their Vermont constituency and have continued fighting against these attacks on such fundamental human rights. But a New York Times profile on the First Daughter from earlier this week contained a largely overlooked section about that meeting, and it reveals how sincerely dedicated Planned Parenthood is to providing abortion-on-demand as its central "service".

Hospitals, with their often outdated IT systems and trove of confidential patient data, are a particularly tempting target. Patrick Ward, a 47-year-old sales director, said his heart operation, which was scheduled for Friday, was cancelled at St.

As an obstetrician/gynecologist, I have dedicated my life to providing healthcare to the women who need it most.

At Louisiana Foundation Against Sexual Assault, director of education and prevention Jessie Nieblas points out the bill poses a specific threat to the many women who are survivors of sexual violence. A recent ABC-Washington Post poll shows that 62 percent of Americans, including 67 percent of Independents, want to keep national protections that cover essential health benefits, and not allow it to be varied by state.

"This legislation. blocks 6,000 in Louisiana from accessing birth control, cancer screenings and STI testing at Planned Parenthood", Sams-Abiodun said. As a result, the notion that there are plenty of community health centers available in those communities to compensate for the loss of Planned Parenthood clinics simply is untrue.

The bill has been praised by pro-life leaders for blocking federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

"Congress's well-founded concern that Planned Parenthood and its affiliates are engaged in a pattern of deceptive practices created to maximize their bottom-line revenue should be enough reason to end the public largesse on their behalf, even apart from the fact that they destroy a third of a million human lives every year and have been involved in numerous other scandals", also remarked Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot.

The U.S. Supreme Court has interpreted the constitutional prohibition of bills of attainder very broadly to prohibit legislative punishment of any form or severity against specifically designated persons or groups. For example, a woman who had breast cancer could face a premium surcharge of more than $28,000 a year for coverage, and a woman who was previously pregnant could face an additional charge of more than $17,000 a year for coverage. About 43 percent of its budget - close to $550 million - comes from government grants and reimbursements, with Medicaid representing the vast majority of that money. They also have stepped up fundraising.

Politics stands in way of Americans' health
But those moves - while they may win consensus among Senate moderates - are unlikely to sit well with House conservatives. Twenty Republicans voted against the ACA's replacement, House Resolution 1628, the American Health Care Act.
