Donald Trump suggests he’s open to keeping taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood

One week after calling for a government shutdown if necessary to defund Planned Parenthood, presidential candidate Donald Trump has expressed willingness to let the abortion giant receive federal tax dollars for non-abortion services, Breitbart reports.

In an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Trump said Planned Parenthood is “like an abortion factory, frankly” and professed to “feel strongly about” cutting off government funding for abortion. But he went on to say that as president he would “look at the individual things they do… I’m sure they do some things properly and good and that are good for women,” because “we have to take care of women.”

In addition, Trump reiterated his opposition to elective abortion, but clarified that he supports exceptions for rape, incest, and in life of the mother cases.

Breitbart’s John Nolte criticized Trump as accepting “a status quo many conservatives find unacceptable and immoral; also a typical federal government shell game to skirt around the law.” He noted that “If you give Planned Parenthood money for these so-called ‘other things,’ the abortion provider can shift money from those ‘other things’ to abortion.”

Live Action News has previously reported that Donald Trump described himself as “very pro-choice in every respect,” including support for partial-birth abortion, in 1999, but in 2011 claimed to have became pro-life after seeing friends grow to love a child they had initially considered aborting, an anecdote he reiterated in last week’s presidential debate.

  • i cannot stand this clown…

  • wfedwar

    I like that Donald Trump fights when I’ve seen so many conservatives get run over by liberals in Washington. I don’t like all his views. I wish he took a more solidly pro-life stance. I can’t stand the exceptions that so many people think are reasonable for abortions. Either you’re killing a baby or not. It’s that simple.

    • it’s just that trump is not the only “conservative” (i’m not sure about that) who is a fighter. cruz, fiorina, and jindal (who is underrated!) are tough too and better choices than trump.

      • wfedwar

        I like all those you listed. I especially like Cruz.

      • Mendel

        none of them can beat Trump and none of them has the bullypulpit he has with the media now. He has to be approached by Pro-Life and educated. We did not know half of what we do now without digging into the secret world of abortion. Most americans do not know the facts including Donald. Donald could literally drive home the prolife message if he were educated on what happens in those videos.

        • August M

          Let’s hope a whole sway of leaders is educated and make this a woman and baby friendly country. If people learn to respect life there would be less crime and less poverty. Love must win in the end.

    • Noah Hardin

      100% CORRECT ON THE ABORTION STATEMENT, KILLING IS KILLING

  • MustSuck2BeU

    Well, so much for Trump. He’s finished now.

    • Sandra

      I never liked him. I was never going to vote for this clown.

      • Patrick Fallon

        Sandra i think your a Hillary lover . a liberal

  • MustSuck2BeU

    Trump is a clown and a loser, and his little poll ride is over. Teddy Cruz is the best choice for America, even better than Carson.

    • Sandra

      Cruz is okay. Rubio is even better.

      • Patrick Fallon

        Rubio i s not even close to Cruz you elect Rubio every Mixican will be killing people in the United States

      • Mendel

        rubio actually said he would put rfid chips in people the other night no thanks ..

    • Patrick Fallon

      Must suck right Trump is a billion dollar loser what a Lib Tard

  • P Smith

    Trump said Planned Parenthood is “like an abortion factory, frankly”…
    .
    At least Trump called Planned Parenthood what it is… to a radical lib no less.

    • Sandra

      Yes but he believes that PP does good for women in other areas. What other areas? PP does NOTHING for women and Trump needs to realize that fact.

      • Patrick Fallon

        I don,t believe Trump know what they do the murders they get away with

    • RooforLife

      Some people thought Hitler did some good things would any sane person believe we should have let Hitler continue to do what he was doing and fund him at the same time

  • Hypatia

    Just forgetting the prochoice v prolife stuff for a minute there is an interesting article in The Atlantic re Fox and Trump I think you might enjoy http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/08/with-donald-trumps-rise-fox-news-reaps-what-it-sows/400973/

  • What’s it 2u

    Pro-lifers,… Voting solely for this wedge issue hurts your cause more than not. The majority of America is tired of this issue being shoved down everyone’s throats. There will be a time to address abortion, but taking up matters of the economy and foreign relations comes first.

    • hilaryLiedAmericansDIED

      Nah-uh, pro-abort—America=ProLife MAJORITY!

      The misogynist&racist planned”parent”hood in the white hoods has been beaten to a bloody pulp by the American Hero David Daleiden & the awesome Center for Medical Progress, and betrayed women are moving in for the kill.

      • What’s it 2u

        Lol…, HLAD
        Kill what?
        No one cares more about Sangers than a pro-lifer reeling for talking points.
        Everyone has a hero.

    • August M

      There is no more pressing issue than stopping abortion. The thing being shoved down everyone’s throats is abortion. This must stop. Babies do not choose to die.

      • Noah Hardin

        THIS ISSUE SHOULD HAVE NEVER GOTEN AS FAR AS IT HAS IN ANY SOCIETY AND ABORTION IS A TOP ISSUE

      • What’s it 2u

        No they don’t, because the majority of Americans believe that a fetus does not posses a functioning brain or nervous system.

        • Faithkuz

          being pro-life is a majority position but the power bases is not prolife. 2012 Gallup poll recorded a record-low 41 percent of Americans self-identifying as pro-choice–the truth is getting out there, finally. What’s, I have a Q for you: when does life begin? Please watch this before you answer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wURL0rVLbY

          • What’s it 2u

            Life begins at sperm and ovum essentially.

          • August M

            When fertilisation occurs and they become one.

        • August M

          A fetus possesses all the normal parts that you or I or any other human being possesses.This includes a developing brain and also a nervous system. Nothing will be added or subtracted to this complete human being except nourishment and growth. Please try and stick to the biological and medical facts and not to “what the vast majority of Americans believe”. And your “vast majority” is also a nonsense by the way.

          • What’s it 2u

            I agree, a fetus is above the woman always. Now let’s defund PP, outlaw abortion and BC. Then, let’s all watch poor women squirm.

      • Nat G

        They don`t choose to live either.

    • how in the world is this a “wedge issue?” we are talking about the killing of innocent humans here. this is an extremely important issue.

      • What’s it 2u

        It’s a wedge issue because the vast majority of America sees this as a war on women’s rights.
        There are living and breathing babies, children, and adults who need help. Outlawing abortion today doesn’t solve any of those problems.
        People are dying from lack of adequate healthcare, some people are out of work and can’t afford to feed their kids. Ect..

        Abortion is a terrible thing, there are some compromises that should be made to appease you folks, but you’re fighting an uphill battle here.
        I think you guys could do more by setting up hotlines for women who are contemplating abortion and offer them resources in their local areas.
        Some of you would talk a lot women out of abortion, and that is doing a lot more than being a party to enacting intrusive legislation that won’t save more lives.

        • akitty77

          Murdering a baby doesn’t solve anything either. Many women are haunted by their abortions. It has caused them to have serious health problems. If women can’t afford to have more children, then they should stop having unprotected sex. And btw, we regularly donate to our local pregnancy centers where we live so don’t preach to me that we don’t do anything to help women. And women don’t have to kill their child. There are plenty of people who would like to adopt.

          • What’s it 2u

            Yes, you’re absolutely right. Because there are no children in foster care today here in America who could use a loving home.

          • MamaBear

            Thousands of children are adopted out of foster care each year, but not until parental rights are legally severed, which is quite difficult to do. The purpose of foster care is to provide TEMPORARY care for children until either their parents get their act together and the family can be reunited or until a judge rules parental rights are legally severed.
            It always amazes me how ignorant some people are that they think just being in foster care makes children eligible for adoption.

          • What’s it 2u

            And I’ve already stated that outlawing abortion will solve all of those problems

            -seems legit.

          • MamaBear

            Actually, there is far more child abuse and neglect now, which results in more children in foster care, than there was before abortion was made legal.

          • What’s it 2u

            Well, my assessment would entail that people of your ilk control the narrative. Heck, control everything and everyone.
            The more people the better. The world needs 20 billion people, and then all the problems will evaporate.

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Amen! That is because if we think that the child’s life is disposable, why not beat him or her up – at least it’s not killing, right? We cheapen life in the womb, we cheapen life out of the womb.

            You just helped me on the sidewalk tomorrow, MamaBear – thank you!

    • Mendel

      GOP troll. The time is now to approach Trump and reveal the evil at planned parenthood.

  • Taylor_is_a_sexy_BEAST

    Trump is a plant from the Clinton’s. His website states no issues so he is flip flopper. I don’t trust him. I never voted Republican for presidential election but if this guys stays in the front I just might back out all together. He makes me that upset. GOP better get this guy in check or they will lose this minority vote.

    • Mendel

      Are you speaking of the same GOP that refused to defund Planned Parenthood? That has not done what they were elected to do?

      Trump is the best opportunity to come along for the ProLife movement, I don’t think he has been approached and fully informed of the evil at planned parenthood. If he understood I don’t believe he would support them in any way.

      • akitty77

        Mendel, I totally agree with your first statement. The GOP is to blame for abortions still being allowed in the first place. But Trump understands. He is trying to compromise here to be liked by both sides. All that does is cause a candidate to lose support in all actuality.

        • Mendel

          I think he will have a hard time finding anything they do good. He said they service women. lol Like they handed out oil changes or something. Lots of men don’t know pph does not service women.

  • MaryTN

    Fight the fights you can win. Defund Planned Parenthood first, then move on to the next target.

  • Mendel

    Encouraging Lila Rose to attempt to meet with Donald who I don’t believe fully understands what goes on at Planned Parenthood. After watching him with the parents of children killed by illegals, I am convinced this man has real empathy for others. Please reach out to him.

    • Patrick Fallon

      Lila Rose right i don,t think Donald knows what they do . you need to talk to him and if he if he against stopping them then i am finished with Trump i really don,t think he knows because i don,t most men don,t

      • Mendel

        Imagine him using those videos to bludgeon the left. He doesn’t understand that tool but if he did … oh my.

  • Flip flopper Trump can’t be trusted…he doesn’t stand on conservative principles and this proves it. One day to the next he changes his beliefs like he changes underwear.

  • Karen Keen Botts

    I hope he is talking about the birth control part

  • Janet Foerster

    Trump did not say that! He said he would shut down the abortions completely. He said he would be willing to look into the other services they offer women because he is concerned about women’s health. If your just going to spread lies, I’m going to drop you.

    • Sandra

      Trump needs to be educated on what PP does and doesn’t do. PP does NOTHING for women and Trump needs to know this fact. All PP does is kill the unborn. Trump is a vacillator when it comes to abortion.

      • o0Nighthawk0o

        Really? PP provides nothing other than abortion to women? I am staunchly pro life and would love to see abortion made illegal but to say PP provides nothing else is just a lie. Cancer screenings, pregnancy testing, STD testing among others.

  • SchmierrNippel

    Completely lost my vote.

  • Mendel

    We stand a better chance of educating Trump then getting the GOP establishment to do anything they are all on the take.

  • Sandra

    He would be a *joke* as a commander-in-chief! No way would he get my vote! Ever!

  • Mendel

    We stand a better chance of educating Trump then getting the GOP establishment to do anything they are all on the take. Cuomo did the backward moonwalk with him here is the transcript is on Newsbusters. Trump just needs a little schooling on the pph distorted logic and how to unwind it.

  • Br. Michael M.I.C.

    Trump said that he would only LOOK AT (not fund) the good aspects of SOME things that they do (He never said these things would be done BY Planned Parenthood!). Where in hell do you get “fund” or even jump to the conclusion that Planned Parenthood would be doing anything for that matter! He clearly said that Planned parenthood should NOT be funded! It seems that he’s just too articulate for some, who are drooling for that “Gotcha!”. Another example of supporters of other candidates twisting his words into something that they wished he had said. Read it again:
    “I would LOOK AT the GOOD ASPECTS of , and I would also look, because I’m sure they do SOME THINGS properly and good and that are good for women, and I would look at that, and I would look at other aspects also. But we have to take care of women.”

    • Sandra

      That’s just it, PP does NOTHING GOOD for women! Absolutely NOTHING.
      Lila Rose posted: Trump’s vacillation on Planned Parenthood funding is deeply troubling, and reveals an ignorance about their horrific abortion practices. Planned Parenthood kills over 320,000 children a year, and barters to sell the body parts of those they abort. Any organization that engages in these human rights abuses does not deserve a penny of taxpayers’ money.

      • Br. Michael M.I.C.

        I agree. You know it and I know it. I was marching shoulder to shoulder with Alan Keys (voted for him for president) maybe before you were born. So thanks for trying to educate me. You know these things because you LOOKED at them. Trump said he would LOOK at GOOD ASPECTS of what they do, that’s all that’s all that’s all!. After he looks he can and should say with authority that he looked and found nothing good, game over, the murderers won’t have a leg to stand on. What you probably really find “deeply troubling” is your misuse of the word ‘vacillation’. What I find deeply troubling is your copy/paste of Rino shill Nolte’s poorly written article. In fact, this organization seems to be a nest of shills for Rino losers Bush Rubio Kasich Fiorina etc so I’m outta here. I btw am a Cruz supporter, I just hate lies. WORDS MEAN THINGS, not what they “seem” to mean. Good luck with your next “gotcha”

    • akitty77

      Regardless, this shows that he has no interest in following the Constitution. Taxpayers should not be funding PP or any other health organization. Govt. has no constitutional authority to be involved in health matters period.

      • Mendel

        “he has no interest in following the constitution”?

        really? because pph lied and said they gave mammograms to him bit of histrionic stretch. ……..I’m not voting for anyone in the race that did not actually try to shut it down when they had the chance. So No Carly, No Jegg who worked with Bloomberg, all that is left is the GOP outsiders that Pat Buchanan called the “insurgents” like the were a enemy, or the George Will called the “unwashed peasants”. I won’t be voting for any establishment candidate.

  • Kristin Thomas

    Cruz is the only one who has pledged unequivocally to defund Planned Parenthood and has NEVER waivered on his pro-life stance. He is the best choice. Trump is a flip flopper who will change his stances with the political winds.

  • RooforLife

    Beside Planned Parenthood killing over 6 million unborn since 1970 there is also the SICK ideology that children are sexual from birth. Where did they get that from Alfred Kinsey a very sick individual who used research based off of sexual abuse of children as young as 2 months old.

    Obama’s HHS ‘grooming’ children for sex
    Exclusive: Matt Barber on how advocated techniques mirror those of pedophiles
    Among other things, Kinsey asserted that children are “sexual from birth.”
    He further concluded, based upon experiments he directed and documented in his infamous Table 34, that adult-child sex is harmless, even beneficial, and described child “orgasm” as “culminating in extreme
    trembling, collapse, loss of color, and sometimes fainting. …” Many
    children suffered “excruciating pain,” he observed, “and [would] scream
    if movement [was] continued.” Some “[would] fight away from the
    [adult] partner and may make violent attempts to avoid climax, although they derive[d] definite pleasure from the situation.”
    Yeah. Sounds like it.
    It’s little wonder that Dr. Reisman identifies Kinsey as a “sexual psychopath.” These children were as young as 2 months old. http://www.wnd.com/2012/10/obamas-hhs-grooming-children-for-sex/#cK7lOIR4dqzmOwPh.99

    Selective Editing of what Trump Said!!
    Trump said, “THE BIGGEST PROBLEM I HAVE WITH PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS THE ABORTION SITUATION,” HE SAID. “IT’S LIKE AN ABORTION FACTORY. YOU CAN’T HAVE IT AND YOU SHOULDN’T BE FUNDING IT AND THAT SHOULD NOT BE FUNDED BY THE GOVERNMENT.”

    “IF THE TIME CAME, I WOULD LOOK AT THE INDIVIDUAL THINGS THAT THEY DO AND MAYBE SOME OF THE THINGS ARE GOOD, AND MAYBE — I KNOW A LOT OF THE THINGS ARE BAD,” Trump said. “I WOULD LOOK AT THE GOOD ASPECTS OF IT AND I WOULD ALSO LOOK BECAUSE I’M SURE THEY DO SOME THINGS PROPERLY AND GOOD AND GOOD FOR WOMEN.”
