Yet again, I have obtained information regarding the perpetual plight of Planned Parenthood that boils my piss.
In an article featured in The American Legion magazine, Republicunt Diane Black, House Representative for Tennessee states that she has introduced a piece of legislation that will de-fund Planned Parenthood. Black was a nurse for forty-plus years (blah, blah, blah), and she is proud to continue fighting for the unborn now that she is a member of Congress. Her crusade against Planned Parenthood, if successful, will ensure that no federal funds are used for the performance of abortions. The Republican majority in the House has voted twice to de-fund Planned Parenthood, but the Senate voted down Black’s resolution both times. (Thank fuck!)
Republicunt Black claims that 98% of the services provided to pregnant women are for abortion. And she’s sick of footing the bill.
“Simply put, taxpayers should not have their tax dollars used for abortions. As long as Planned Parenthood and other groups like it continue to use federal dollars to subsidize abortion services, I will continue to go after their federal funding.“
Democratic House Representative for California, Lois Capps thinks Black is an ignorant hillbilly and that she should go back to milking goats in the mountains of Tennessee. (Okay-Capps did not really state that in the article:-) But she does oppose the de-funding of Planned Parenthood, which is the largest provider of reproductive health care in the United States.
She claims that 97% of the services provided by the said organization are unrelated to abortion.
“And it is important to note that not a single taxpayer dollar pays for abortion services at Planned Parenthood, with the exception of procedures necessary to save the life of the woman, or in the case of rape or incest.“
Capps also states that,
“While the attempt to defund Planned Parenthood has been made under the guise of deficit reduction, it would actually increase the deficit, because the lack of contraceptives Planned Parenthood normally provides would likely increase the number of Medicaid births. In addition, ending federal funding for Planned Parenthood would stop preventative health screenings for millions of women, and could lead to more women getting sick, being diagnosed late and needing more treatment that is more costly and invasive. Defunding Planned Parenthood would not reduce the need for women’s preventative-health care. Since it is reimbursed for eligible services it provides, such as cervical-cancer screenings, these payment costs would shift to reimbursement from other, more costly providers.“
FACT: Planned Parenthood provides services to women with low to moderate income. They perform breast exams, gynecological exams and contraceptives. With so many uninsured and inadequately insured women, Planned Parenthood is their only option to maintain their reproductive health and receive affordable birth control.
Politicians like Black claim they are working for the People when in actuality, they are fucking the People in the ass! How do they make sense out of de-funding Planned Parenthood-an organization that promotes safe sex practices, provides exams and screenings and distributes birth control that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg-while giving more state aid to those fucking undeserving, fat, lazy cows abusing the welfare system? We’re supposed to support a government that wishes to strip a woman of the right to a healthy body while Molly Moo Moo sits on her ass and squeezes out baby after baby after baby in order to qualify for benefits? Fuck that noise. My taxpayer dollar helps supply that bitch with a check she didn’t even earn, and that is what offends me. And Diane Black. She offends me, too.
