Despite a year on defense following its worst scandal yet, Planned Parenthood hasn’t lost its place at the government trough for 2016, a fact that means the nation’s largest abortion provider has yet another year to push its narrative that defunding it would be “harmful” to “women’s healthcare.”
“For months, women’s health supporters have been pushing back on our opponents’ relentless stream of attacks on the women and men across this country who need reproductive health care,” a press release at Planned Parenthood’s website states. “Last night, congressional leadership announced a budget deal that contains no new harmful policy riders on women’s health, and maintains current funding levels for important preventive health programs.”
“Extreme members of Congress spent an entire year targeting access to reproductive health care at every opportunity — even threatening to shut down the government,” Singiser continued. “Today’s budget bill maintains access to critical preventive health services and lacks these harmful attacks on women’s health care — at home and abroad.”
Still, Singiser thought it necessary to chastise Congress for not providing everything Planned Parenthood wanted. The $1.6 trillion omnibus spending bill cut funding to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) program by seven percent.
