The federal funding that they are receiving is not handed to them straight from the government, itis the health insurances, such as Medicaid (a government funded program), reimburses the doctors and nurses for the health services they provided. If Planned Parenthood were to be defunded, more people would be born into poverty, and teen pregnancies and STI rates would go up. Perhaps in the years ahead people begin to see that Planned Parenthood is not all abortions, but about the health and wellbeing of all people, so that many more people can have access to preventive health care.
