  •  Actually PP Does Subsidize Abortions... (0+ / 0-)

    ...for those women who  cannot afford the fee, usually about $400. If a woman has no insurance and little money, PP has access to funds that will reduce the cost to $200. What PP does not do is use any federal funds to pay for abortions.

    In some states the restrictions on abortions are so onerous that PP must maintain separate facilities and staff, one for general gynecological care, STI tests, cancer screenings, family planning, etc., and one for abortions. In other states the two can be the same facility and staff but any given day or half day must be devoted to one or the other, lest, horrors, any federal or state funds might be used to cover some cost of abortion.
