Q: How many people would lose access to health care?
A: If extreme politicians shut down Planned Parenthood, 2.5 million patients would lose access to care.
Here’s the breakdown:
- Approximately 60% of Planned Parenthood’s patients access health care at its health centers through publicly funded programs like Medicaid or Title X.
- Legislation that “defunds” Planned Parenthood immediately blocks those people from accessing care at Planned Parenthood health centers.
- We know that politicians real goal is to shut down Planned Parenthood health centers across the country. If these politicians succeed, it will be a national health disaster and devastate care.
