Egalitarian: To sum up, let's support women's health and control over their fertility, so fund PP. (and remember kids, you'll be saving on welfare down the line if less unwanted children are born.)
The Stealth Hippopotamus: Sorry but the Tulsa World backs me up. They're doing a bad job. Guess what? You shouldn't get the funding if you're doing a bad job with it. The only thing that leads you to believe that it's politically motivated is the head of Planned Parenthood saying it is. And what are they suppose to do? Admit they are messing up and the state is in the right?! Planned Parenthood has been Planned Parenthood for a long long time and the State of Oklahoma has been the State of Oklahoma longer than that. What has changed? It claims the department has violated the organization's First and 14th Amendment rights "by imposing a penalty on its advocacy for access to safe and legal abortion services, referrals for abortion and/or its association with abortion services." Did Planned Parenthood just start giving abortions? (the answer is no) So they got the funding when they had these political ideals and now they dont have the funding and still have those political ideals. It will be fun watching them try to explain that in a court of law. Well nothing has changed other than they have proof we are doing a bad job! Give us out funding back!!I know it's really weird for a government program to use logic. But I'll take a win any time I can. And improving government efficiency is a win.
Silly Jesus: skullkrusher: YoungSwedishBlonde: Silly Jesus: Taxpayers shouldn't have to subsidize those who would terminate children or those who encourage it.Yea, it's not like there's any federal laws banning that or anything...banning funding for abortions as birth control. Federal Medicaid funds cover rape, incest and life of the mother exceptionsIt shouldn't be OK for rape. God's intent is not to be questioned.
The Stealth Hippopotamus: Sorry but the Tulsa World backs me up.
Kittypie070: Silly Jesus forces his children to pay cash for every meal they eat that's cooked at home.
Silly Jesus: "They won't let us give people free shiat, WAAAAAH!"
