Medina Bajrektarevic started this petition to Trump Administration

Planned Parenthood has recently been denied future funding under the Trump Administration after the organization has drawn itself out of Title X. The choice to withdraw from Title X occurred after the Trump Administration forbade Title X clinics from referring patients for abortions. The clinic claims that this would result in them consequently withholding information from their patients, which they do not oblige to. The withdrawal has caused them to lose over 60 million dollars in federal funding.

Planned Parenthood has been providing services such as "STD testing and treatment, birth control, well-woman exams, cancer screening and prevention, abortion, hormone therapy, infertility services, and general health care" to over 1.5 million low-income women. With the federal funding cut, these services have to be privately funded. Many of these women will also have to switch to private health care providers, which will have to end up accepting funding from Medicare which is un-equivalent to the reimbursement they would receive with private insurances. This puts a strain on the new providers or the reason that need to address how to provide care for more Medicaid patients while continuing to see enough privately insured patients to financially sustain their practices. Sooner or later the organization will run out of resources to give to these many women, leaving them at a disadvantage to living a healthy, happy life.
