Not a nickel of Planned Parenthood's federal funding is used for abortions. But some of the $75 million Republicans want to strip from Planned Parenthood does pay for things like screenings for cervical cancer, breast exams and testing for sexually transmitted diseases.
GOP leaders may say this is about deficit reduction, but when they go after funding for Planned Parenthood and Title X, what they are really doing is targeting women's health care programs as part of their cultural agenda.
People should be outraged.
