(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

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.

Planned Parenthood's services help avoid nearly half a million unwanted pregnancies each year. They are America's biggest abortion preventer.

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...

cchris_39: We don't get why liberals want women to kill their babies.


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

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?


Why do conservatives want women to die in back alleys, instead of going to medical professionals>

netizencain: Honest question... he seems to have a valid point... why are all the PP shops closing up in Texas?  What am I missing?


Republicans lost the abortion debate in court so they opted to first bomb clinics, terrorize doctors and patients and when that didn't work they legislated it out of existence by placing ridiculous restrictions on providers

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."

So the GOP politician is still full of sh*t.

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.

gilgigamesh: Dusk-You-n-Me: Planned Parenthood's services help avoid nearly half a million unwanted pregnancies each year. They are America's biggest abortion preventer.

Well that's the problem, isn't it? With Planned Parenthood preventing all these abortions, what do far right politicians have to motivate their fundamentalist single issue whackadoodle base?

Pretty soon safe and legal abortions will be impossible to obtain anywhere from Texas to Florida. Then what will GOP candidates do? Terrorism doesn't have the same *bang* it did ten years ago. If you think that's going to drive the yahoos out to the polls forget about it.

Its freaking election season! We need to drive PP out of business and get those abortoplexes humming, man!


The two worst things that could happen to the Republican party are constitutional amendments banning abortion and gay marriage.

Some have closed completely, others have stopped providing abortion services. They were forced to do this because the Texas legislature passed onerous and unnecessary requirements for abortion providing facilities, and the fifth circuit court of appeals upheld the law as constitutional.

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.

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.

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.

Why do God fearing Americans hate God's own policies?

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.
