Planned Parenthood refuses Trump offer to give up abortions and keep funding
Planned Parenthood has declined an offer from President Trump to keep – and possibly increase – its federal funding in exchange for ceasing to commit abortions.
The proposal was an "impossibility" for Planned Parenthood officials, the New York Times reported. Planned Parenthood receives nearly half a billion dollars from the federal government annually. Its non-abortion services are able to be billed through Medicaid. Ninety-four percent of its pregnancy services are abortion. Planned Parenthood however claims abortion is "only three percent" of its business.
