Why does Planned Parenthood need to be funded in the first place?  Don’t they make enough money to do their genocide (oops! I mean women’s health care) in poor neighborhoods for free?

I found a list of things that Planned Parenthood doesn’t provide from Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood Director turned pro-life advocate:

This is for people who say Planned Parenthood provides so many services for women. Here are the facts. Planned Parenthood should NEVER be your “go to” for healthcare. 

Planned Parenthood does NOT provide:
-Mammograms
-Prenatal Care
-Breast Biopsies
-Breast Cancer Diagnostic Care 
-Primary Health Care 
-Diabetes Treatment 
-Treatment for Elevated Cholesterol 
-Treatment for Elevated Blood Pressure 
-Holistic Medicine 
-Obstetrical Care 
-Pediatric Care 
-Care for HIV Positive Individuals 
-Infertility Treatments 
-Natural Family Planning Instruction
-Care for Uterine Fibroids 
-Treatment for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome 
-Adoption Placement 
-Prostate Exams 
-Uterine Laser Ablation 
-Cervical Laser Ablation
-Miscarriage Management 
-Bladder Disorders and Urinary Problems
-Prolapsed Pelvic Floor Concerns
-Laparoscopic Procedures 
-Hysterectomy 
-Treatment of Endometriosis
-Polyp Removal 
-Endometrial Ablation 
-BRCA Testing 
-Bone Density Testing 
-Treatment of Pelvic Pain 
-Treatment of Vulvar Pain 
-Molar Pregnancy Follow Up

Planned Parenthood DOES provide: 
-First and Second Trimester Abortions
-Limited STD testing and treatment 
-Pap Smears for Women in Child Bearing Years 
-Limited Contraceptive Methods

Just wanted to put some of the myths to rest.

And of course, there are the exceptions …

Why does Planned Parenthood need to be funded in the first place?  After all that’s been in the news recently, they shouldn’t be.
