Planned Parenthood: 5 Myths

What is and what is not about Planned Parenthood. Of course, the only thing anyone hear in the news concerning PP is the Right to Life debate or the battle against abortion. Donald Trump - take note. The ProLife stance here is to remove the woman's right to Privacy or the woman's right to an abortion. PP is more than just abortion (which functions less than 5%). It is sex and fertility education, access to birth control, HIV tests, HPV Vaccines, breast cancer exams, etc. PP is an essential resource and health services for women of all ages, race, religion, income status, etc. But it is negatively plagued by Religious Conservatives.

I was a Planned Parenthood affiliate chief executive, supervising a network of clinics in New York state, during the early days of this terrible recession. We ran deficits, cut hours, closed centers and laid off staff members. In a recession, things get very difficult — more and more people are in need, while government funds lag and donations dwindle. But still we did not turn patients away, even if they could not pay. At the same time, we had to fight political battles to preserve women’s rights to basic care and information about their sexual health. Those battles continue: Thursday, the House voted to defund Planned Parenthood permanently; the Senate opposed that measure. Amid the debate, let’s address some of the misperceptions about this nearly 100-year-old health-care organization. 

1. Planned Parenthood’s federal funding frees up other money to pay for abortions.
2. Ninety percent of what Planned Parenthood does is provide abortions.
3. Defunding Planned Parenthood will reduce abortions.
4. Planned Parenthood serves only teenagers and prostitutes.
5. People don’t really need Planned Parenthood.

Again, the top 5 list above are MYTHS! 
If abortions is less than 5%, what does Planned Parenthood do for the 95%?
For women who lack healthcare, PP provides needed preventative maintenance, screening and treatment for those who cannot afford it. PP provides vaccines, cervical cancer screenings, 830,000 breast exams, STD screenings, low-cost reproductive information and care, which also goes into providing contraception. This is affordable and acceptable healthcare for millions of women in need.

Funding for Planned Parenthood must continue.
Barring Planned Parenthood from participating in federal programs would lead to less access to birth control, more unintended pregnancies and more abortions.

Stand up, support and be counted for Planned Parenthood. Link

Analyze the ysl replica hardware. It should be abiding and feel hardly heavy. If the bag's zippers, clasps, buttons or chains feel chiffon or cheap, it is not accurate Gucci. Inspect the bag's material. Gucci uses alone the finest leathers and fabrics. Oftentimes, affected Gucci accoutrements are fabricated from replica covering that feels stiff. Look anxiously at the Gucci logo. It should be two chain Gs. Replica Gucci accoutrements about affection two chain Es instead. Confirm the bag comes with a high-quality duster. All Gucci accoutrements arise with careful dusters. If the bag doesn't arise with one, it is not authentic. Check if the bag comes with an identification card. Gucci accoutrements arise with cards that account added information, such as archetypal numbers. Compare photos of the bag for dior replica arrangement with photos from the official Gucci site. If you apprehension any discrepancies amid the two, you are acceptable ambidextrous with a affected Gucci bag. Almost every woman dreams of one day accustomed a Gucci bag, but abounding of us will never be able to allow that $1,500 or added amount tag for a purse. Abounding women go afterwards the affluence at a atom of the amount and acquirement a knockoff Gucci bag. There are differences amid a absolute and affected Gucci bag. Let me advice you adjudge if the differences are big abundant to skip on the knockoff. One of the basic differences in a affected Gucci bag and a absolute Gucci bag is area the purse is made. A absolute Gucci bag is fabricated in Italy; your knockoff added than acceptable is fabricated in China. So if you are aggravating to acquaint the aberration and you see, "Made in China," afresh it is ablaze that you are captivation a fake. Gucci purses accept data that a knockoff purse will not, and if a knockoff has some of the fendi outlet data it will not accept all. An accurate bag will accept a appearance amount and a four-to-six-digit consecutive amount amid central the purse on the label, the Gucci architecture cast on anniversary zipper, and a affidavit of actuality with the purse that aswell bears the consecutive amount that is begin central the purse.
