The government does not and never has funded abortions. Planned parenthood provides birth control and treats other health care issues unrelated to pregnancy. They do not use government money to provide abortions. Taking money away from planned parenthood will only cause more abortions and more neglected pregnancies that end in tragedy. Mommas with no prenatal care deliver sick babies. Those sick babies could have been healthy if they'd had prenatal care. They go to the NICU and the hospital cost is hundreds of thousands of dollars every month for as much as a year. Lots of these babies die. I have been the nurse that bathed them. Birth control prevents these tragedies. Birth control costs less than $100 for 1-5 years. But that $100 is unattainable for many women.
