Planned Parenthood under attack

From its defiant origins in 1916, Planned Parenthood has not shied away from controversy — fighting to legalize birth control, offering...

Planned Parenthood foes have been relentless, and it now faces some of the most withering attacks of its history. The shadow of an abortion opponent holding a cross can be seen near a Planned Parenthood center in Dubuque, Iowa, in 2009.

Yes, it is time to fight back against these Republicans who would take away funding for such a needed organization, one that provides much needed medical help to women who can't afford it otherwise.

We've had some people on these boards worried about Sharia law. Not me. I'm much more concerned about the evangelical Christianity that is trying to take over our government, our laws, and our lives.

What a shame to try to cut off funding for this wonderful health service it's many women's only access to female care.

I read on some forums that 30% of unborn children have been aborted since Roe and Bolton. I believe both Roe and Bolton wanted to see the children they attempted to abort. This indicates they changed their minds later, an option those who do abort never have.

My understanding is the majority of those aborted have been minority children which sort of feeds into the Eugenics that Sanger believed in when she started Planned Parenthood.

Many if not most states permit a woman to drop off a child at a hospital, police station, fire department of many other places no questions asked. Aside from offering the option absolving a woman of all possible parental responsibility without an abortion how much more can pro-life people do to help?

Not try to take away funding for clinics that provide birth control and education to poor women.

Only 3% of Planned Parenthood's services are for abortion. Look at the number of unintended pregnancies and abortions that are prevented by Planned Parenthood's contraceptive services.

<
The government provides about a third of Planned Parenthood's funding. Since abortion is only 3% of their services, it's safe to say that no government money is going to abortions.

<
So, now that you have the facts, you're okay with Planned Parenthood still receiving money from the government, correct?
