Introduction
The Grand Ole Parties’ (GOP) argument to defund Planned Parenthood is not creditable because of one particular reason; Planned Parenthood is not using government funds to conduct abortion. These are the term in which the legislation was written and passed in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Planned Parenthood receives public funds to provide comprehensive reproductive and ...view middle of the document...

Public funds given to Planned Parenthood and its partners are used to provide about 4 million tests and treatments related to sexually transmitted diseases, over 500 thousand breast exams, 3 million birth control services, and about 1 million pregnancy test each year. This does not include the educational class it provides to teens and young adults.
GOP’s Argument
During the hearings that the Republican members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee lunched against Planned Parenthood Republicans criticized Planned Parenthood saying that the organizations receives most of its revenue from public funds and that the tax payer is providing over 40 percent of Planned Parenthoods income.
The Rebuttal
The use of this argument to defund Planned Parenthood does not hold water. As the legislation or U.S. law is written, federal funds cannot be used for abortions unless the pregnancy threatens the life of the expecting mother or in the case of rape or incest. So if Planned Parenthood is getting 40 percent of income from taxpayers, this means it’s not coming from abortion but from other services they provide. Argument after argument Planned Parenthood has defended itself with the law being on their side.
Why doesn’t the Republican Party see that their arguments have no merit? It’s because the Republicans are negotiating theory and emotion. “The bigger the transaction, the more important it is to identify core interest, walkaway options, and assess how other parties see their choices (Lewicki, Barry, & Saunders, 2015). The problem is the Republicans have done none of this, they started a hail storm with conservative and made defunding Planned Parenthood a political issue and have no way of taking it off the table without making it a lose/win situation with Planned Parenthood being the victor. The worse of all this is “the ramifications of their political differences, the impacts of their public comments, and the innuendo of their private asides not only resonate with the messiest battles associated with divorce but also symbolize larger sociopolitical impacts on women, illustrating how women’s bodies can serve as material tools for various political groups” (Young & Wright, 2015).
My Argument
Here is an argument as to why Planned Parenthood should remain funded. It’s good for the economy. When people have access to family planning it creates a clime in income levels and family planning reduces poverty because families are not living above their means which reduces the amount of families on state assistance. “Medicaid and Title X provide critical reproductive health care and family planning services to low-income women and families throughout America. Medicaid is the largest single public funding source for family planning services” (Zoppo, 2012). Defunding this Planned Parenthood throws many American who can’t afford to go to a major hospital or private physician for basic health care services under the bus.
