Fmr. HHS Sec. Burwell on P. Parenthood: ‘There Is No Federal Funding that Ever Goes for Abortion’

‘When they receive funding they receive funding for preventative care services that they have provided to people in low income communities’

EXCERPT:

BURWELL: "Again, focusing on what I think most folks that when I've been out in the country have talked about, which is affordability, access and quality and this issue. Because the funding does not go for, there is no federal funding that ever goes for abortion. And what Planned Parenthood -- when they receive funding they receive funding for preventative care services that they have provided to people in low income communities. And the idea that we are going to not fund one of the providers that provides services in terms of preventative care, that's well women visits, that's kinds of cancer screenings for women, that's contraception and other types of care, that they will not be funded is something that I think is concerning to many folks and especially women."
