    There are some sane people left in the Republican party..

    I was beginning to wonder.. :eusa_whistle:

    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?

    It's not my responsibility to provide women access to vital health services.

    Planned Parenthood is a large enough organization that it does not need government funding.

    If planned parenthood can't survive without government funding, it really isnt doing a good job.

    The Republican will PAY for their nonsense come 2012.

    They will, once again, have a very short-lived "victory."

    They just can't help themselves.

    They are DRIVEN by radical ideology, not facts, logic or reality.

    Its a division of interest under one tent. Many Cons don't give a crap about abortion but they have the SoCons bitching in their ear constantly about this.

    You can't reason with them because there is no middle ground for fanatics = if they aid in ANY abortions, they are responsible for ALL abortions. So they have to put this tired old nag of an issue in the starting line up or the bake sale types won't come to the game.

    You know, there is an simple solution to end abortion in the United States complete. If people stop having premarital & extramarital sex, then there won't be any need for abortion will there?

    Simple.

    It would eliminate all STDs within a generation as well.

    Shame so many people think they are not subject to the natural laws of the world.

    Humans have been having premarital and extra marital sex for hundreds of thousands of years. And you think that we should all suddenly stop now, because you don't want Planned Parenthood to receive tax money? What a stooge!! Good luck with that.
