Five million people are aided by Planned Parenthood every year through services and outreach.
Shutting it down would be irresponsible, preventing 400,000 Pap smear tests, 500,000 breast exams and 700,000 HIV tests annually, according to the Planned Parenthood website.
Nonetheless, the Grand Old Party seems determined to do just that.
“They consider the economic and policy implications of (Planned Parenthood) services without considering how a denial of these services could affect … more marginalized citizens,” said junior Student Body President and sexual health activist Molly Anne Marcotte.
