Planned Parenthood has always been a source of controversy throughout its existence but 2016-2017 has been the two years where the foundations of the company has been on the verge of a shutdown. With the rise of conservatism with the election of President Trump Planned Parenthood has been attacked consistently throughout the past 2-3 years.

On February 22, 2017, a judge blocked Texas from defunding Planned Parenthood. This shows that since the rise of conservatism pro-life people have been really determined to defund Planned Parenthood due to the sole reason that they believe it solely provides women abortion for low costs. The judge stated “there is no proof in the video that Planned Parenthood violated ethical or medical standards. He also found no evidence that the state showed Planned Parenthood altered abortions to procure fetal tissue for research.”, this shows that although many pro-life people will try to destroy planned parenthood it will prevail because it is ultimately a human right to have the choice people have to do what their bodies and health.

Planned parenthood although a controversy needs to be seen as something of a right. According to their website, they give out free STD tests to those who ask for it, free breast exams, free or inexpensive healthcare, free contraceptives, and there not only for women. Planned Parenthood helps out everyone regardless of gender and according to them “… only three percent of all Planned Parenthood health services are abortion services.”
