We all need to fully fund planned parenthood.

Another flat out pro-life lie.

Why can't pro-lifers effectively defend their position on abortion without making up and spreading lies?

The fact that they feel the need to lie is very telling.

Got some links to support the bolded assertion ?

This is an excellent outcome and puts an end to a chunk of the abortion debate as far as most people are concerned. Some will still fight against it of course, but most will be satisfied that taxes aren't directly funding abortions and other left wing activism. Nobody should be unhappy about this, it's win/win.

And that is her choice, just like it would be mine to terminate such a pregnancy.

The numbers say otherwise but back to the point, I don't know why people celebrate defunding planned parenthood since the end result will be fewer services for poor women.

If everyone who voted for Hillary donated $1.00/year, PP would have that $60 million in Title X funds it refused. I'm sure wealthy supporters could afford more than $1.00. Besides, PP is rolling in dough.

PP boasts that 97% of its services go to health care other than abortion, only 3% for abortions. Why would you or anyone else support its decision to sacrifice Title X funding for the 97% in order to keep the abortion business.

That makes no sense. PP is just a very small percentage of the FQHCs, nationwide, that already provide Title X family planning and comprehensive health care services to women.

It's about population control. Less population utilizing the resources, more resources for the richer people. Some people just do not want to share their drinking water ...

Role of abortion in control of global population growth.

"With the exception of a few countries with aging populations and very high contraceptive prevalence rates, developed countries need to maintain abortion rates in the range of 201-500/1000 if they are to maintain growth rates at levels below 1%. An even greater reliance on abortion--over 500/1000 live births--is required in developing countries to reduce population growth." (my bold)
