17% of all non elderly (under age 65) women in US are on Medicaid. Of that number 70% are child bearing age (18 to 49), but they account for nearly 50% of all births in the US.
That means roughly 12% of American women receiving Medicaid account for half the births in the US. At the same time Medicaid finances 75% of all publicly-funded family planning services.
One thing is certain; poor and low income women, need Medicaid, and family planning services including Planned Parenthood.
What is not so certain is the acceptability of the numbers and possibly the responsibility, the behavior and life choices that lead to them. They also raise the question of whether these programs create a Catch-22 of dependency and entitlement.
