The proposed GOP budget cuts that may cause a veto from President Barack Obama and cause a government shut down would have big affect on the Black community as well as Hispanics and the Urban Poor.

One the biggest pushes by the GOP is to cut funding for Planned Parenthood. Despite the GOP’s demonization of Planned Parenthood, the organization isn’t purely about providing abortions. Planned Parenthood provides condoms and other means of contraception to people in urban communities. They also educate teens on sex, children and parenthood and offer other options such as adoptions and counsel young parents on how to raise children.

The GOP is also looking to make major cuts to HeadStart, which provides childcare for children under five for people in urban areas who may not be able to afford other sources of daycare. Another proposed cut by the GOP is to WIC or Women with Infants and Children which provides money to families who may not be able to feed their families.

The Republicans also want to cut Pell Grants which subsidize college tuition for people who may not be able to afford college and cut the Minority Business Development Agency which helps minorities start their own small businesses.
