Laura McQuade is an activist famous for her role in the fight to ensure that all New Yorkers enjoy comprehensive health care. She is the face behind Planned Parenthood Organization of New York City, which has been at the forefront of championing the return of Title X funding after the government banned it.
Title X was enacted in 1970 under the Public Service Health Act with the primary goal of providing health care facilities to thousands of New York residents, especially those without medical covers. A political move instigated the ban arguing that the government should not fund abortion-related services regarded as a vice in society.
Following the ban, many low-income earners are expected to suffer when getting medical attention. The rates of spontaneous abortions will increase, putting the lives of young women at risk. Besides, the number of deaths caused by cancer will rise as cancer screenings possible through Title X funding will no longer be available.
To counter the move, Laura McQuade is planning a new deal to see Planned Parenthood Organization merge with other five affiliates of the same interest. The new organization will have a more substantial negotiating power to compel the government to reinstate Title X funding. Besides, the new organization will increase its funding to more than $110 million that will help it to help more than 200000 residents. The organization will also increase its health centers and raise employees to more than 900 members to increase its reach to more residents.
