Good! Planned Parenthood is a viper wreathed in angelic robes. My tax dollars should not support death and even worse the advocating and teaching of death.
Maybe you didn't get it...the conservatives tried to end Planned Parenthood funding, and the judge blocked them from doing so.
Also, you tax dollars DO NOT go to abortion in any way, even at Planned Parenthood. You are entirely 100% incorrect in this entire post.
And my tax dollars shouldn't support war.
Strip them of everything. And then out-law Abortion. Roe Vs Wade will be over-turned in my lifetime. And it will be a great day.
Personally I support abortion. Notice men are great talkers, but will do anything, including going to war and getting maimed
just so they don't have to do the work of raising children.
Maybe not the men you know... but the rest of us take pride in raising our children.
Many men take pride in raising their children, so you are not alone. However, show me a man with a uterus.
This reminds me of another story. Eight weeks after my daughter was born, my male OB (whom I adored) said to me, "Now, that wasn't so bad, was it?" I asked him if he had a uterus. This wonderful man took my question to heart, and I know he never asked that idiotic question again.
Pride is neither understanding nor empathy.
... I feel sorry for every man you know.
Oh, goody, this thread is in politics and social issues, not religion and beliefs.
Good for the federal judge.
Planned Parenthood provides information for individuals to make their own choices. This organization is not about abortion, it's about information and providing legal medical services.
Back in '79, when I suspected I was pregnant, I went right over to my local Planned Parenthood clinic and had a pregnancy test. This was long before you could buy a pregnancy test kit at a drugstore. (I think rabbits were still being sacrificed then.)
No medical forms, no questionnaires, no insurance provider crap, just a simple blood test in a respectful environment at a more than reasonable fee.
The only advice I walked out of there with was to see an OB/GYN as soon as possible.
If I had asked about abortion, Planned Parenthood would have given me the information I needed so that I could make an informed choice.
Hardly a viper wreathed in angelic robes.
Whether Planned Parenthood should as a matter of law receive public funding, I don't know because I'm not a legal expert. But if it should, then the right thing was done by the federal judge.

I am interested to know the general public opinion about planned parenthood. It is a hot topic as the government shut down is very much connected to this topic. Just one more thing to add: I found out that planned parent hood is more about funding millions for early and late term abortion...

A poll for the ladys out there.Planned Parenthood claims that only 3% of their services are for abortion. The rest is for cancer screening and other unrelated health services.So how many of you women out there actually use planned parenthood without the intention of getting an abortion?

Before, it was all kind of fuzzy. We knew that abortions took place in Planned Parenthood facilities and fought against it, but other activities were unclear. Now, we have clear, undeniable evidence of the evil - and I mean evil - practices taking place using our own tax dollars. It is not an...

Should we stop funding Planned parenthood?The House has passed a bill to cease funding for Planned Parenthood. I personally think this is a huge mistake... what are your thoughts?
