Trump to Planned Parenthood: Funding Stays If Abortions Go

The White House recently proposed a plan to keep funding Planned Parenthood if the nonprofit organization discontinued providing abortions,The New York Times reported.

The offer was rejected by Planned Parenthood officials.

"Let's be clear, federal funds already do not pay for abortions," Dawn Laguens, the executive vice president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, told the Times. "Offering money to Planned Parenthood to abandon our patients and our values is not a deal that we will ever accept. Providing critical healthcare services for millions of American women is nonnegotiable."

Obviously not a business major. Any federal money recieved by planned parenthood no matter how it is used absolutly supports abortion.

This is a no brainer, really... simple cost benefit analysis.

Pay for the abortion now... or pay to support an unwanted child for at LEAST the next 18 year, probably longer as the chances they are on some sort of government assistance after then is higher... pay for law enforcement for the boom in population, government housing,pay for prisons, ... do I need to go on?

Which do you think is the fiscally responsible thing to do?
