(The Raw Story)   TX GOP Candidate for LT governor says that it " is a myth that Planned Parenthood has anything to do with women's health,". I mean c'mon, they expect us to believe "mammograms" or "gynecologists" are real things? Nice try Planned Parenthood   (rawstory.com) divider line 107

SauronWasFramed: Planned parenthood does not perform mammograms.


They just pay for your mammogram if you need one after a regular breast exam, which is done on site. Sort of like my doctor sends me out for a mammogram - except my doctor would not help me pay for one if I could not afford it.

Superjew: Why do conservatives hate women so much?  Is it the monthy uncleanliness?  The innate weakness?  The tendency to capitulate to talking snakes?

I don't get it.


We don't get why liberals want women to kill their babies. Is it because you hate women or because they just aren't man enough to take responsibility?

Dag, you actually linked to something that proved my point and undercut your own:

Lost_in_Korea: FTFY:   "This is a myth that Planned Parenthood has anything to do with women's health," he opined. "Why are they closing clinics if they're making money on providing women's health? They're closing clinics because they make all their money taking the lives of babies."   (emphasis mine)

Can someone please explain how a non-profit organization that relies on government subsidies and donations "makes money?"

I don't get it.

They blame it on Christianity even though the bible is perfectly fine with abortion.  Even gives directions on how it's done.  So... yeah.  Don't know either.


No no. See, that's the OLD testament. The Old Testament doesn't count unless you're talking about queers. That's the only part of the Old Testament you should pay attention to. What you really need to do is pay attention to the NEW Testament. It has Jesus and all of that anti-abortion stuff. Also, don't forget his famous line of "that what you do unto my brother, you do unto me. Unless you're talking about THAT guy. He's a freeloading moocher, and I hope he burns in hell."

This is Texas.  He could say anything he wants about Planned Parenthood, no matter how full of shiat, and as long as he is advocating getting rid of it, most of the state will be behind him.  He could even say they are the best thing since sliced bread, but we're getting rid of it anyway, all good.

fusillade762: "One day, this nation is going to look back as this nation looks back on slavery from the 1800s and says, 'What were they thinking then?'"

To be fair the bible talks more about slavery than it does about abortion.


And it seems to be cool with both. (see Exodus 21:22)

Abortion has been around longer than liberal has been a word. All liberals want is unrestricted access to a safe and legal medical procedure.

SauronWasFramed: Blues_X: SauronWasFramed: Planned parenthood does not perform mammograms.

But...

"Planned Parenthood offers comprehensive breast health care management, which includes manual breast exams as well as patient education on breast health. That care management program includes providing women with information about mammograms, referring them to health centers where they can obtain mammograms, and assisting them in covering the costs of the procedure by referring them to government programs that provide free mammograms or by using grant funds to reimburse the medical providers who perform the mammograms."

SundaesChild: Really, because when I was on unemployment Planned Parenthood did my pap smears, fished a dislodged IUD out of my uterus, and referred me for a mammogram.  In addition to the prerequisite birth control options.  I guess nobody bothered to tell them they have nothing to do with women's health.


But none of that matters because Planned Parenthood did not actually perform the mammogram themselves.

God commanded Israelites to the rip children from the womb of their enemies. And, the Passover event in Exodus can be considered nothing less than infanticide.

We don't want anyone to kill their fetus. We just want the pregnant woman to have the right to make that medical decision with her physician.

Maybe I'm wrong about this, but I think you can't tell a Texan anything because of some sort of bullshiat pride.

This is obviously an unfair generalization, there *are* sane Texans... But how many get elected?

They actually restored some of the funding to Planned Parenthood as the increased births at county hospitals ended up costing more than the amount of funding cut. Add in the extra teachers schools, etc and it's a lot of $$.

How dare these people suggest that people use contraception and educate folks on how to NOT become pregnant in the first place? I mean, if the Godless stop having all these out of wedlock babies, then how is Jesus going to stock up Hell's kindling? Won't someone think of the poor Debbil? He goin' get cold down in the Pit with only the meager pickings that the lotto and porn bring in, and with diminishing returns at every round if we actually stop sending all those unbaptized fetuses to the Hereafter.


Why won't someone think of the poor Debbil? He gave us so much, after all...

Planned Parenthood is going to cost Hell a brazillion souls if they continue, and save the taxpayers millions of dollars that they'll only spend in an active economy. Don't these people know that government workers NEED heavy caseloads to justify their salaries? Why does Planned Parenthood hate the government? Why does it hate the US? Why does it hate Lucifer and reject Jesus' plan to send all the sinners who fornicate babies to punish them for their sins?

Yup. Planned Parenthood: the REAL enemy...

I've been a patient at PP in three states over the last 18 years. Not one have I had an abortion. Am I doing it wrong?
 
2014-05-09 12:44:20 AM  
The people who complain the most against abortion also seek to block all of the effective ways to cut down on it.

It's just like how they hate 'illegal immigration', but don't want to make it legal, because then how can they punish them?

They seem to WANT people to do the things they hate, so they can be punished as cruelly as possible.

I've read the Bible in a number of different translations. There's evidently a New New Testament that I haven't read yet, maybe God only revealed it in his House of Representatives. But it strikes me as confusing, since it bears PRETTY MUCH ZERO RELATION TO EVERYTHING ELSE EVER SAID.

Abortion issues aside (planned parenthood prevents far more abortions than it performs)... PP was the only semi-womens type doctor facility in my mom's tiny town in Oklahoma... it's where they found a lump, that we would later learn was breast cancer. I say "was" because they basically got ran out of town by new restrictions on the width of hallways in facilities performing abortions... they didn't have the money to renovate/build a new building... so now they're gone. Someone else's mom won't get that exam, and someone else will have a dead mom because the "pro-life" people only care about those who aren't yet here, once you're alive, they don't give a shiat about you.

I was shocked to hear on Maddow the other night that there's just one abortion clinic left here in Missouri.. and of course, the Missouri legislature passes dozens of news laws to try and force them out of existence.  I didn't know it was quite that bad here.

Of course, that was part of the coverage where the poo-flinging monkeys in the legislature just passed a big tax cut over the governor's veto, so they can be like Kansas and get their credit rating destroyed.

They got smart... instead of restricting abortions, they use construction code and other sneaky tactics to limit facilities... in the case of the town where the PP was near my mom, they passed a bill saying that the hallways needed to be 8ft wide, to accommodate two way gurney traffic and emergency medical care (in the hallway). What it meant, and they knew it, was that they'd effectively force a several hundred thousand dollar renovation, or construction of a new building that the doctors couldn't afford.

Then again, that town isn't known for long-term thinking... when they got rid of the professional fire department (low taxes, yay!), and went to volunteer only... they had a terrible wildfire season the following summer, and many of the volunteer firefighters had to quit, so they could go back to their normal, income-making jobs. Like a total pussy, Obama used federal wildland firefighters to help, so when the whole town didn't burn down, they declared their low-tax, no firefighter plan a success...

Did you hurt yourself back pedaling into that wall, or does spin reversal come so naturally by now you don't even notice the whiplash?


Women under 40 don't get mammograms unless a lump is found, but breast exams are part of an annual exam, along with tests for cervical cancer, STDS, and other potential issues.  And they will provide all of this free if the woman can't afford it. And give them free birth control - preventing abortions.
