Do You Know What Planned Parenthood Actually Does?

Planned Parenthood keeps landing smack-dab in the middle of the Republicans’ war on women, ostensibly for its abortion practice. But that seems strange, considering this chart:

Only 3% of their patient care actually goes to abortion services. And, according to federal law, Planned Parenthood cannot actually use government funds on abortion procedures. So, if Planned Parenthood gets defunded, it’ll hurt poor people who are in need of┬ácancer screenings, contraception, and STD testing.

So, nice try on that abortion thing, Republicans. As usual, your claims don’t hold.
