Trump Makes Planned Parenthood An Offer: Abortions Go, Funding Stays

The Trump administration reportedly made an informal offer to Planned Parenthood: The organization could keep its funding if it stopped providing abortions. But Planned Parenthood isn't interested.

President Donald Trump told the New York Times, "I am pro-life, and I am deeply committed to investing in women's health."

Planned Parenthood gets $500 million from the U.S. government every year. But it's against the law for any of that money to be used on abortions — with very few exceptions.

Republicans are looking for ways to defund the organization. Right now, they're hoping they can do that using the same bill that would repeal Obamacare.
