Defund Planned Parenthood: Go Right Ahead

Here's a discovery:  "Defunding Planned Parenthood" does nothing to injure the organization of Planned Parenthood. The doctors, the nurses, the administrators still get paid and don't even blink. 

This is because the government doesn't "fund" Planned Parenthood in the first place.
The government subsidizes the patients (through Medicaid) who can then go to Planned Parenthood for their contraception, HIV screening, STD screening. Medicaid does not pay for abortions. 
So "defunding Planned Parenthood" does not cost Planned Parenthood a cent. 
You are defunding the poor women who use Planned Parenthood. 

That may make you happy. 
You may think, well then those tramps will not be able to get their abortions now. Serve them right. They can just go have those babies like respectable women.

Of course, if you are thinking beyond your own moral rectitude, you might consider defunding contraception may in fact be, practically speaking, stoking up unwanted pregnancies, but for someone like you, who thinks like you do, that is probably not a problem.

Take home message: You don't hurt that evil empire, that abortion mill--only 15% of what Planned Parenthood does has to do with abortions--that den of iniquity, Planned Parenthood, by denying Medicaid to the patients who use the facilty. You have simply deprived it of one customer base--and, in fact, from a business point of view, Planned Parenthood, if it were run strictly as a business, should be only too happy to divest itself of the poor, of the Medicaid dollar, which is always laughably low. 

But go right ahead. Feel good about yourself. Make war on poor women. You always have. Now you can feel self righteous about it.
