Planned Parenthood has been a resource for women and families for many years.
Now Federal funding has been jeopardized as the House of Representatives voted to cut funds to this organization and now it is on to a Senate vote.
This will be a tragic loss for women in the United States.
Last week, breast pumps were allowed new status under IRS tax laws. Michelle Obama has championed this cause. She wants to see more breastfeeding among African-American women.
I want women not be so pleased with this recognition of breast feeding by the IRS that they miss an important issue now at hand for Planned Parenthood.
Yes, it is good news that women can now enjoy a tax-break for their breast pumps but this accomplishment will be kicked to the curb if we allow Planned Parenthood to be dissolved for lack of Federal funds.
