I keep looking, but no new progress. Like you said they've lifted the restraining orders for now.

maybe someone could fill me in, is it private funding or state funding that pays for the abortions at PP?


It's a combination of fees charged and private contributions.


Planned Parenthood's 2013-2014 annual report shows that it received about $528 million in "Government Health Services Grants & Reimbursements" — about 41 percent of its total funding. It also received about $305 million from non-government health services revenue — 23 percent of its funding — and $257 million in private contributions and bequests, according to the report.

but if you feel the state shouldn't be paying for the abortions in your healthcare system, then I imagine the same principle would apply for the insurance companies.
here in the US, there's the same sentiment towards birth control....
so, well, I have to ask...
do you know what kind of toll pregnancy after pregnancy causes to a women's body?? wouldn't preventing that kind of damage be considered a healthcare need of equal worthiness as any other?
if not, well, why????

the same could be said of insurance then, which you seem not to have a problem with....
all the policy holders pay their premiums, some of the money is taken out and used to pay the administrative costs, and the rest goes into a pool, and well as the insured people need healthcare the money in that pool it taken out and used to pay for the services.
ain't no different.
except that the administrative costs probably take out a greater portion of the money paid by the policy holders so that the people on the top of the food chain can enjoy their extra hundred dollar pay raise and big ass bonuses!



i dont think there should be a need for insurers, just cut them out of the equation and thats another step towards a socialised healthcare system....i dont need to deal with insurers here, i pay 20% income tax and a portion of it goes towards the publically owned NHS, if i break a leg i go to the hospital and get treatment...no forms need to be filled out, no insurance providers need to be called etc.....get rid of them


I so wish we could.

The insurance lobby has many politicians in their very deep pockets - it is a huge industry that employs thousands of people and brings in BILLIONS of dollars every year. It is quite sick. The Double Game of the U.S. Health Insurance Companies

Maybe someday, at least for the majority of us, that can become the reality. I won't hold my breath, though!

We most definitely agree on this...

You are correct, it is a personal choice.
And I choose not to have my taxes contributed towards the murder of unborn children.
What about my rights and choice?

Our taxes should never be paying for this.
Someday, hopefully, people will wake up and make the right "choice".

All of which clearly shows that big money is involved.

Big enough to trigger a takeover attempt.

Just because PP is a "non-profit", doesn't mean some other organization wants the money.

This whole PP thing might be a corporate takeover in progress.

Current and extant Federal law strictly prohibits tax dollars being used - except in cases of rape, incest or to save the mothers life.

In other words, the current system already is what you want - you are buying into misinformation.

No, they don't.

You pay your taxes. Do you try to follow those pounds through the system?

You pay your taxes. That becomes government revenue, which is used to cover government costs.

"Derp" right back atcha.

well, we didn't here, obamacare did try to address this and now most insurance policies have to provide it free of charge. but well, some had a fit over it claiming that it was against their religious principles so well, they don't have to provide coverage for it...look up hobby lobby...
some religions have a thing about blood transfusions, but the supreme court when deciding the hobby lobby case made it a point that their decision couldn't not be carried over to blood transfusions. that's a battle that would have to be fought on it's own merits....
so well, for a women who knows that her health will be endangered by a pregnancy, maybe even life threatening, how is her need any different from someone who needs a blood transfusion?

How about YOU wakeup and go and read the law?
