Defund Planned Parenthood 12By Susan Ha

Abortion is one of the most controversial topics that has been globally debated about for decades, and over 57 million abortion procedures have been provided since Roe vs. Wade in 1973. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the United States, and the reason why it has been in the middle of this debate since it began. On the political side, Republicans are viewed by many as more religious and conservative than Democrats, and vote more towards policies that agree with their Christian values and beliefs.
