There are some sane people left in the Republican party.. I was beginning to wonder.. ThinkProgress » Indiana GOP Senator Slams Her Party For Cutting Planned Parenthood Funding: This I agree with the Senator 100%. Can someone.. anyone.. explain how taking away funding from a group that provides birth control and many key health services to low-income women, will somehow lead to less abortions?.. Abortions are a very small part of what Planned Parenthood does. They also help prevent a large number of abortions, help stop the spread of STD's, give women breast exams and pap smears.. and the list goes on. Why do Republicans generally hate PP so much?
