Seriously? The only Planned Parenthood office I ever saw close was because they were moving to bigger offices. I think you are scaring yourself needlessly.
What part of the word "will" do you not understand? And why don't you address the point, and explain to us all exactly how following the building codes of hospitals will medically benefit the patients?

I imagine Planned Parenthood makes a great deal of money performing abortions and collecting the fees from various government organizations. I don't foresee PP supporters placing those numbers on a public forum.

You imagine? Did you bother do actually investigate, or does your imagination actually carry some significance that you're not explaining?

Planned Parenthood is a non-profit so they don't "make money" by performing abortions. If there is any profit from performing a service, that goes back into the organization.

Your imagination is vivid but completely inaccurate when compared to reality.

Only 10% of PPs clients receive abortion services, with the other 90% going there for pap tests, STD screening and treatment, prostate cancer screening, pre-natal care, contraception, and other reproductive-health related issues. Roughly half of all PPs don't even provide abortion services.

Any monies PP takes in must be funneled back into the organization, as it is a non-profit. Also, any government funding it receives can NOT be used for abortion services as required under the Hyde Amendment. Simply put, it is against the law.

I'm not a huge fan of Wikipedia, but this link is fairly well-researched and is balanced and up-to-date:

Take care.

These 'regulations' are just a conservative end run. Like 'voter fraud', a solution looking for a problem that doesn't exist, with an incident rate no different than other health facilities.
Get a grip heh, he would get rid of the government subsidy of Planned Parenthood. The Planned Parenthood "franchise" is a profitable one for a Doctor to have. There is no danger of that organization going under. If you want to support Planned Parenthood, send a donation. Be a waste of money though, they don't need it. Stop scaring yourself. BTW, I am not "huck".

46% of PP's funding from the gv't is profitable?

What lifer's won't admit is abortions save taxpayers many times over. Forcing a woman to bring an embryo to term incurs decades of social services.

No, it's not true. My dentist has a brand new office - it's certainly not designed with corridors for hospital trolleys.
What this means is that abortions providers will be regulated like full-service hospitals, while other outpatient surgical facilities will not.
Does your dentist provide Nitrous Oxide as an option for pain relief? Many no longer provide this option because of the cost of complying with the codes for EMT access.

I dont understand Mitt Romney. The Latter Day Saints allow for exceptions to "no abortions": in the case of rape, incest, and the health of the mother. If Romney is strong in his faith and his faith approves of these exceptions, then how can the evangelicals support him? especially if they believe in no abortions, period.
Can someone explain this? Even Elder Oaks of the LDS has stated that this is acceptable.

Agreed. Let's not forget that at the beginning, conservatives opposed BIRTH CONTROL clinics too. The reason why was simple; they didn't want women learning about methods that could help them AVOID unwanted pregnancy.

It suited conservative males very well that women remain nothing more than baby producers and unpaid housekeepers. Women who learned how to PREVENT getting pregnant might decide to do other things besides being wives and mothers, like focusing on a trade or profession and being independent women instead.

The unborn child has a right to life, which you obviously don't seem to understand and I support that right. I disagree with you on the rest, yes innocent woman and children in other countries have been killed but don't think it is with purpose and forethought. If you think this country is barbaric, go live in the middleast and live under sharia law. Get a grip "thinking free". However I will agree with you since the liberals have been running this country we seem to be becoming a barbaric country with authoritarian leadership.

It's a contrived notion to assume that all conservative males perceive women that way or that's the reason people oppose abortion. All statements like this do is try to demonize and divide as well as stoke the fires of extreme partisanship. It's like saying that liberals are people willing to kill just so that they're not inconvenienced.

Similarly, the Democratic party used to advocate slavery around the time of the Civil War. To use that to claim to say that all Dems are racist is just as ludicrous as saying all conservatives think that a woman's place is in the kitchen and spitting out kids.

There are many people like me, who lean conservative but are on the fence when it comes to abortion. I see abortion the taking of innocent life for trivial reasons (escape from responsibility, escape from inconvenience... but support it in cases of incest/rape), but support all women's rights... so we don't know exactly where to stand... so we just stand on the sidelines.

Well said. However, I am against abortion. Life for a woman after abortion is usually filled with grief, guilt, sadness,depression, and can lead to drug addiction, eating disorders and sometimes suicide, the list goes on. I cannot stop a woman from choosing an abortion but I can educate her and stand up for her baby. She will have to suffer the consequences of her actions. If aborting a baby isn't motivation for you to stand up,go and talk to women who have had abortions see their grief and pain,it may change your mind.

Your generalizations are incorrect. I've known several women who've had abortions, and none of those things have happened to them. They made their own choices, based on their own circumstances and moral code, and do not regret their choice. There are websites where women who also don't regret their choice tell their stories. Do some women regret? Yes, and no one is denying that. But not all.
