Video: Here’s What Would Really Happen if Planned Parenthood Were Defunded

Aleteia - published on 08/27/15

Students for Life use Lancaster, PA, as an example

Planned Parenthood and its supporters argue that if the organization loses its federal funding, women will lose health-care services, especially in under-served places in the country. But what would really happen if the abortion giant were de-funded?

Students for Life of America (SFLA), the largest youth pro-life organization, decided to take a look at the question using a video to show one such scenario. In the video, they consider Lancaster, PA—a place Cecile Richards says is an example of an under-served area. Not only are there other health-care providing centers in Lancaster, but removing the funding from Planned Parenthood and giving it to many other centers, and even new ones, would expand healthcare for women.

SFLA trains and equips college, high school, medical, and law school students and is one of the most active pro-life groups in the country.
