51% Liberal


Top 5 sentiments contributing towards policies:

87% : Planned Parenthood operates on an affiliate model, meaning that local groups like Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida are separate nonprofit organizations from the national Planned Parenthood Federation of America, which sets some overall standards for the Planned Parenthood brand.
78% : But with coronavirus spreading across the country, clinics have had to space appointments out, convert some in-person visits to phone consultations, and cancel fundraisers, leaving them with a drop in revenue, Stephanie Fraim, the chief executive of Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, told Vox.
75% : Amid this pressure from the SBA, Republicans in Congress are calling on the Department of Justice to investigate whether Planned Parenthood committed fraud by applying for the loans.
68% : "This is so obviously another attack on Planned Parenthood and our health care and the patients we serve," Fraim said.
56% : In normal times, the clinics provide reproductive health services from STI testing to contraceptive counseling to abortion.
56% : Fraim knew Planned Parenthood would likely get a different level of scrutiny from the government when they applied, so her team was sure to read the PPP application criteria extremely carefully, she said.
50% : The Trump administration has long worked to strip funding from Planned Parenthood -- for example, a new rule governing Title X family planning funds forced the group to drop out of that program.
50% : Given the Trump administration's history with Planned Parenthood, however, many have been concerned it might discriminate against the group during the pandemic.
38% : Still, attempts to have affiliates return their PPP funds are an attempt to weaken the group and reduce access to abortion care in the long term, Planned Parenthood and its supporters believe.
20% : This, coupled with the fact the Hyde Amendment prohibits the use of federal funds for abortion, means PPP funds have not been used for abortion procedures.
