Planned Parenthood: Is it really a woman’s choice? Paul Ryan and a group of GOP leaders have made a statement to and along with other news broadcast, that in order stay within our nation’s budget Trump’s plan is to defund planned parenthood as soon as possible because we have other sources for women’s care as well sexual reproductive health for both men and women. From what I have noticed, that with the statistic rate of unplanned pregnancies and the poverty rate rising in the United States should show how important this organization is to the women as well as couples who need affordable help with birth control options. I have researched many online interviews as well as having physical evidence that this organization is a good resource…show more content…
Planned Parenthood does not always mean “abortion, baby killers, inhumane organization” it’s an organization built by Margaret Sange and Ethel Bryne to give assistance to women and men for any type of sexual reproductive health concerns. I feel strongly about this topic because I believe that women should have a choice on what they want to do with their own bodies. I would like to introduce this topic in a logos appeal with facts and statistics on how often this organization has been used for birth control reasons versus abortion.

Has our president done his research on the statistics of unplanned pregnancies during the 16 day shutdown of Planned Parenthood? What kind of argument are pro-choice activists making when being faced with anti-abortion leaders? I would hope to answer this by stating facts and personal experience with people who have a common ground with anti-abortion leaders. There is plenty that both groups can agree on if they choose to agree. What I would like to learn is that how can we find a common ground to both parties and possibly move the pro-life activist to understand why defunding Planned Parenthood is a bad idea. I also would like to learn the pros and cons of defunding Planned Parenthood to better understand the opposing view on this issue. Can Planned Parenthood hold its own organization without
