According to Fox News, Planned Parenthood should no longer receive any federal monies to support the specific health needs of women. The rationale being that there are citizens who oppose abortion on religious grounds; thus funding tramples on their religious beliefs. I can understand that for religious reasons this position might be held. However, those with such beliefs have the option not to have an abortion. I, personally, would have difficulty making the decision to have an abortion. However, since I gave birth to a child with severe multiple birth defects I would never knowingly bring such a child in the world again. And ... there would be medical procedures that would permit me to have this knowledge prior to birth.
