GOP health bill would cut majority of Planned Parenthood budget in California
sfgate.com
Planned Parenthood of California, which operates more of the organization’s health centers than any other state in the nation, would lose 73 percent of its operating budget under the health care bills that Republicans are pushing to replace the Affordable Care Act, its leaders said Tuesday. Planned Parenthood of Northern California, which operates 20 health centers San Francisco, Marin, Contra Costa and other counties between the Bay Area and the Oregon border, would face budget reductions of similar proportions. Both pieces of proposed GOP legislation — one passed by the House in May, and one introduced by the Senate last week — would end federal funding to the women’s health organization for one year. Planned Parenthood has long been a target of conservatives, who argue that the federal government should not fund health care providers that perform abortions, even though the procedure is paid for by state, not federal funding. In some of our most rural counties, we might be the only provider that delivers sexual and reproductive health care services in the area. A spokeswoman for the chapter did not immediately return requests for comment, and it is not clear what portion of its federal funding would be withheld if the GOP proposal moves forward.
