Jeb Continues His War On Women, Doesn't Think Planned Parenthood Does "Women's Health Issues"

Aug 25, 2015

Excitedly enlisting in the GOP’s second war against women, Jeb Bush has abandoned his stance of “not sure we need half a billion dollars for women’s health issues,” to take on an even more extreme and hurtful one. Today, Jeb Bush told a townhall that he doesn’t think “Planned Parenthood ought to get a penny… because they’re not actually doing women’s health issues.”

Here’s a helpful reminder that in fact, Planned Parenthood is the leader in “doing women’s health issues.”

According to Planned Parenthood’s 2013-2014 annual report:

  • Health centers provided 487,029 breast exams
  • 87,988 women whose cancer was detected early or whose abnormalities were identified
  • Over 1.4 million emergency contraception kits provided
  • 516,000 unintended pregnancies averted by Planned Planned parenthood contraceptive services
  • Over 704,000 HIV tests conducted
  • Over 169,000 STIs diagnosed
