Oy vey, OP, where to begin:
First of all, Planned Parenthood is one of the greatest assets to our society. If you have a wiener, then you have no clue how much extra medical BS
females have to deal with and the cost of it all. I've gone to PP more times than I can recall in my life and only recently found out that SOME
clinics do abortions. I went there all through college for birth control, I went there when antibiotics caused a yeast infection, I went there to
have a painful, migrating IUD taken out when my regular OBGYN couldn't see me for 2 weeks, I went there when I had to take birth control for a full
year (not even sexually active) to treat a hormone imbalance.
So, Hell yes PP should be funded by the government. So that even people who can't pony up the low costs ($80 per exam v. $140 or more for a regular
OBGYN) can still get necessary health care.
Second, your own article talks about them wanting to repeal the Helms Amendment, which bars doctors in other countries from even DISCUSSING abortion.
Um, it IS a safe medical option so to prevent doctors from even discussing it is dumb and this amendment SHOULD be repealed.
Third, the article talks about repealing all the BS 'for the safety of women' laws that states have recently passed? You know, all the thinly veiled
anti-choice nonsense? You know, like the law here in Texas that was just ruled UNCONSTITUTIONAL. And those evil Dems want to put all those other
bills and laws where they belong, the recycle bin? Yes please.
I'm not Republican, nor am I Christian. But I'm not a Liberal or Democrat either. I'm all about personal freedom and personal choice. And being a
first world nation, I think it is society's responsibility to help the disenfranchised have access to health care. Your thread riled up all the
forced-birthers, so congrats on that, but I really don't see any problem with the content of the article you're 'discussing'.
PS I can't stand Hillary Clinton, so don't assume 'I'm with her'.
