60% of Americans Say Budget Deal Must Include Funding For Planned Parenthood


The latest poll by the Pew Research Center found that 60% of Americans disagree with the Republican Party and are insisting that any budget deal includes funding for Planned Parenthood.

According to Pew:

The latest national poll by the Pew Research Center, conducted Sept. 22-27 among 1,502 adults, finds that 60% say that any budget deal must maintain funding for Planned Parenthood while 32% say that any agreement must eliminate funding for the organization.



There are stark partisan divides in attitudes about the Planned Parenthood issue and in views of a budget compromise more generally. About eight-in-ten Democrats (83%) and 64% of independents say any budget agreement must maintain funding for the group. Two-thirds of Republicans (66%) say any agreement must eliminate Planned Parenthood funding.

As House Republicans hold a show hearing in the Oversight Committee over the edited Planned Parenthood videos, the majority of the American people not only support the organization, but they want it to remain funded.

Republicans are creating another “legitimate rape” issue for themselves by attacking Planned Parenthood. The GOP attempts to define Planned Parenthood as strictly an abortion provider is not working because 2.7 million Americans get their healthcare from Planned Parenthood.

The American people should be outraged by the fact that Republicans are defying the will of the majority by embarking on an ideological quest to defund a popular healthcare provider. Just as in election years past, Republicans are launching a politically motivated attack on women.

The American people want Planned Parenthood funded, and if Republicans continue down this track voters will make them pay dearly on Election Day in 2016.

  1. …proving yet again thier deafness to the cries o’ thier constituents…the Republican’t Potty marches on, to the tune o’ thier Masters…
    …I was wondering…is this the Fascists 4th or 5th Reich??? Gettin’ hard to tell without a scorecard…

  2. gnop rep. Chavetz opens the hearing whining about a lack of funding for cancer. Bemoaning the number of deaths every day he appears to believe that cutting funding for millions of tests and screenings for early detection and prevention in exchange for treatment is the thing to do.
    Sure… everyone knows an ounce of cure is worth a pound of prevention.

  3. the GOP is going the way of the dinosaur. the party has become completely irrelevant. those on the right are devoid of any compassion or sympathy or empathy. they are without common sense, rational thought and process and are basically brainless and heartless … the republican party is no longer useful in our democracy. republicans have clearly proven they can no longer function, govern, work, or compromise with dems or independents. the GOP is irreparably broken- thoroughly dysfunctional- they are helplessly corrupted to the core and partisan to extremes. the GOP have become vindictive, spiteful, divisive, obstructive, treasonous, and are gutless saboteurs. they have become an irrelevant group of petulant children who hate their fellow americans, their country, and now even our constitution.

  4. The GOP has continued the same rhetoric that lost them the last two elections.One wonders if they want to drag “W” out of hiding for their convention and give him Eastwood’s empty chair.

  5. “Sure… everyone knows an ounce of cure is worth a pound of prevention.”

    Just how is big Pharma supposed to make a decent raping of those of us who need medicine with that kind of sarcasm?

  6. Being outraged because the gop are ignoring my wishes is what I’ve become accustomed to. What really sets me off is the fact that they scream debt to try and get their way, and their followers buy this crap. I’m guessing their nutcase followers believe these investgative committees are free, or that they actually ever uncover anything. This is the show that we pay for so they can tell constituents they actually are doing something. Wether it’s relevant or not.

  7. The GOP has wasted countless funds on the multiple/never ending Benghazi hearings, this bogus Planned Parenthood video scandal, and soon to be non-email-gate hearings. They are scrapping for negative attention like dysfunctional children. The GOP base has all but disappeared, and has been replaced by Tea party f’nuts. Now comprised of ignorant racist zealots, they insist on taking this Country backwards.
    The hoodwinked GOP will be sure to pay again in 2016, for laying out that Tea party welcome mat. LOL
