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."
