Hyde Amendment, 1977, etc. precludes Federal funds from being used for abortion.

I don't agree with that, but that is "the law" in the US.
Well then it won't hurt to enforce the law by pulling funding from PP will it.

Organization such as Planned Parenthood. Nobody is going to
Argue that roads are not essential. Hey didn't a bridge just collapse in
California?

the federal gov is not providing funds for abortion,
and... it seems like the federal gov't provides ALOT of funds for SOME people's healthcare..
and to be honest, looking back on the debate about the mandate that insurance policies cover birth control, I have to say that at least some on ATS seem to have a problem if their insurance premiums include coverage for it for those in that particular insurance pool who wish to use it. so the "I don't see why I have to pay for someone's birth control" extends far wider than just the taxmoney that is used on it..




it's not the job of the State to provide abortions or contraceptives to all the women of the world.


a more correct statement would be that there really isn't any constitutional obligation of the federal gov't to provide healthcare to it's citizens, nor is there to provide aid to countries halfway around the world. But regardless of weather we agree with it or not, it's been the policy of the gov't to do this for a very long time and then explain to me why you feel birth control should be singled out as not being healthcare.

So, there's more to it than defense and commerce.

That's the point I was making.

the funding that planned parenthood gets is from medicaid, FOR COVERED SERVICES RENDERED.. of which elective abortion is not one. a smaller amount comes from title x... neither of these programs were created exclusively for planned parenthood and there are many doctors and clinics receiving reimbursements for COVERED services they are rendering also. and there's a good possibility that these same doctors and clinics are also providing services that are not covered.
if the money is spongeable is justification to pull the funding from planned parenthood, then it should be justification for every provider that is providing some services that aren't covered, or at least those that are also providing elective abortions....
the part about the international funding includes not referring, recommending or discussing abortion also..
good luck finding any ob/gyn in this country who wouldn't consider at least discussing abortion if the right situation presented itself, along with the many who would do it. heck who know but you might restrict the medicaid recipients to just those doctors and clinics that affiliate with the catholic church or some other organization, who by the way, are willing to risk your life before they would even suggest an abortion as an option, regardless of the circumstances!

Well it is a bit indirect when giving funds to PP simply because PP has other services but what else besides contraception? Family planning is what else besides that? No there's absolutely
No reason the Federal government should find it necessary to fund an NGO like that. Then these funding for the UN and that is also imdirect but there is also the same family planning type programs as well as vaccination which may include sterilants. Yes you are right it was more correct to
Say there's no obligation to fund abortions or any healthcare program. They used the commerce clause to justify it and Justice Roberts justified it as a tax.

yes I understand but this was the point I was trying to make

National defense is the only mandatory function of the national government. Most of the powers granted to Congress are permissive in nature. Congress is given certain authorities but not required by the Constitution to exercise them. For example, Article One, Section Eight gives Congress power to pass a bankruptcy code, but Congress actually did not enact bankruptcy laws until well into the 19th century.

oh, and I've looked into our local county health clinic, they do std testing one day a week, first come first serve basis....

but, I think it's kind of ironic that when I say that women should just be saying no to the sex unless they are hoping to conceive a baby, it's the only birth control that is 100% effective, that having kids too close together too often reduces a women's life expectancy...regardless of their marital status!!
I am led down this nice rabbit hole.

women have been told for far too long to keep our legs crossed by men... it's time for us women to start telling men to keep their zippers zipped...

Mmmhmmm all of that wall of text and yet none of that is mandatory Or necessary for government to provide for.
Actually if that is what women are marching for, the government does not owe it to them.

but you have to admit, there seems to be much more there than just family planning!

and yet, many of the people who might be saved by that cancer screening or some other healthcare IS PAYING the doctor's bill so some mother somewhere can rest easy tonight knowing that the runny nose their kids has isn't gonna kill them...
heck, maybe it is even that mother who is running their kid to the doctor for the runny nose..
which do you think the kid would prefer, treatment for an irratating runny nose, or a mom living through their childhood?

WHAT THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T HAVE THE CONSTITUTIONAL POWER TO DO IS TO PICK AND CHOSE WHO SHOULD BE HELPED AND WHO SHOULDN'T BE AMONG THE MASS THAT NEEDS THE HELP!

The point you were making is that there are only two things the national government does under the authority of the Constitution.

That claim is mistaken, no matter who says it.

We're talking about the women's march. Are you saying that those marching were excluding abortion rights and protection for planned parenthood from their arguments/demands? The subject of abortion and women's health is often conflated in these arguments, regardless of what the Hyde Amendment says.

Rand Paul just made a very eloquent statement on CNN..... he said the Hawks want more defense spending and the liberals want more welfare spending so they end up with compromise spending budget and the taxpayers get stuck with trillion dollar spending.
As I said defense is the only mandatory thing. Everything else is optional. Paul also said we don't need any more wars.
I agree with him

You were talking about whether the Federal government should spend money on abortions.

Maintaining the right to an abortion is not the same as asking the government to pay for it.

Abortions and women's health are not conflated, one is a specific case of the latter. Sometimes, it may be necessary for a woman to have an abortion, perhaps to save her life. Not always, but sometimes. Even if it is a matter of choice, it is still within the matter of that woman's individual health to insure that facilities are available that are clean and safe, as well as medical personnel with proper experience.

Like it or not, abortions and women's health are intricately related to each other.

The womens march made specific reference to planned parenthood, not only abortion law. Trump position has been that he supports the work of PP, except their abortion practice. That is what he has drawn criticism for, played out in speeches during the womens march.
No, abortions and womens health are not intricately linked. Linked on occasions? yes. Intricately linked as a general rule? No.
