Typical liberal idiots.
And only idiots support this group.
It's more clear than ever why Democrats want money for the savages at PP. It's nothing more than a money laundering operation. Of course, we already know killing babies excites bloodthirsty liberals. That goes without saying.

how are they subsidizing PP?
All around embarrassment to the Right wing america.
No. You're lying.
By sending them money. Duh!
Fee for Service isn't Subsidization. Duh!
Your not embarrassed by dumbass memes?
Why would I be embarrassed by anything I'm not responsible for? Are you embarrassed Bernie is such a moron?
You gave a winner rating to a meme that doesn't understand fee for service.
I understand PP getting free money from taxpayers. Apparently you don't.
It's not free money when you do services to earn it.
It's a subsidy, as stated by Charlie Kirk. There is no lie or spin you can come up with to change that.
Yes, I know right-wingers will fall for any meme on the internet.
Meme or not, Planned Parenthood gets an annual welfare subsidy courtesy of US taxpayers.
No, Medicaid pays for the services PP provides.
You could claim poor people are receiving subsidies they are using at PP, but PP isn't getting subsidies.
No, you're lying. Planned Parenthood gets grants from the federal government.
what a punk!! why would anyone believe this wimpy bitch? what federal government Planned Parenthood gets is due to their being the only medical resource for millions of lower income women in rural and urban areas to gain access to medicare and medicaid approved tests, exams, and other health care needs all women need, regardless of income or location in this country. has nothing to do with abortions, as no federal money can be used for legal, discretionary abortions, which does not make much sense, but that is the way it is. why does this little bitch or any other trump voter want to deny vital medical access to so many women? the money they get from the government is just compensation for government funded health care for women. any money they donate, is not tied in anyway to any federal money they get for the great humanitarian health care they provide.
How much does the government pay to Planned Parenthood?
Planned Parenthood receives $500 million a year in government funding — or, to be more exact, $528 million last year, according to Planned Parenthood's latest annual report.
That totals more than 40 percent of Planned Parenthood's total $1.3 billion in revenue for the year, which suggests that the organization would be in some heavy financial trouble without that public funding.
What programs are funding that money?
Those public funds come from two programs: Medicaid, the health care program targeted at lower-income Americans, and Title X, a federal family planning program that likewise primarily serves lower-income Americans. The overwhelming majority of federal funding to Planned Parenthood comes from Medicaid — 75 percent, according to a Planned Parenthood spokesman.
Not all of the public funds Planned Parenthood receives are federal spending, however. While Title X is a federal program, Medicaid operates using federal and state funds. States receive a 90 percent federal reimbursement on Medicaid family planning spending, for example. So when Washington politicians talk about "defunding" Planned Parenthood, they generally mean cutting off federal money. States could continue to spend as they please.
How does Planned Parenthood actually use those government dollars?
Abortions account for 3 percent of Planned Parenthood's services.
Source: Planned Parenthood
However, abortions are actually not a big part of what Planned Parenthood says it does — 3 percent of the services it provided last year were abortion-related, according to the organization's annual report.
The overwhelming majority of Planned Parenthood's services involve screening for and treating sexually transmitted diseases and infections, as well as providing contraception.
Who goes to Planned Parenthood?
Title X and Medicaid are programs that target low- to middle-income Americans, and many of Planned Parenthood's patients are likewise lower-income. As of 2012, 79 percent of people receiving services from Planned Parenthood lived at 150 percent of the federal poverty level or lower (that comes out to around $18,500 for a single adult), according to a March Government Accountability Office report.
What does the law say on funding abortions?
Title X does not allow federal funds to be used for abortions.
The 1977 Hyde Amendment dictated that federal Medicaid funds could only be used to fund abortions in cases of rape, incest or to protect the life of the mother. However, some states have expanded cases in which they will provide funds. Currently, 17 states allow funds to be used for "medically necessary" abortions. In those cases that these states count as medically necessary but that are not permitted by the federal guidelines, states cover the cost alone.
What would it mean to "defund" Planned Parenthood and would it save taxpayers money?
Efforts to strip Planned Parenthood of public dollars go back decades, as Kaiser Health News' Julie Rovner wrote recently. The most recent attempt, known as S. 1881, would have stripped Planned Parenthood of federal funding and made it "available to other eligible entities to provide women's health care services." Senate Democrats, however, successfully blocked that bill this week.
Defunding the group might cut some spending and accomplish one Republican anti-abortion goal, but it could also backfire, as Congressional Budget Office Director Keith Hall wrote this week in a letter addressing S. 1881.
Though the CBO didn't do a full, formal analysis of the bill, Hall pointed out that while the bill could cut government spending, it could also increase it. While displacing Title X funding from Planned Parenthood to other clinics, the bill could have cut Medicaid spending as some beneficiaries might fail or decide not to seek out family planning services at other clinics. But on the other hand, it could have led to more spending (not to mention more unplanned pregnancies):
"CBO also expects that some of the services that would not be used if S. 1881 was enacted would include those that help women avert pregnancies and deliveries. Reduced use of such services would be expected to lead to additional births, increasing federal spending, primarily for Medicaid. In addition, some of those children would themselves qualify for Medicaid and possibly for other federal programs."
