Support Planned Parenthood - page 14

I am a strong supporter of Planned Parenthood. Recently the House of Representatives has voted for the government not to fund this organization. I think it is an awful thing to do to communities all... Read More

    Well, not like the President doesn't misrepresent his own views from time to time, or change his mind, or evolve when an election is coming.....oh, no, he never does that.

    Obama is ever so much more stable in his opinions and philosophies than the republican candidate for the POTUS was...so we can be thankful for that at least.

    Media Covers up Democrat-Backed Planned Parenthood’s Support for Infanticide | RedState

    So this is the republican party's stance on Planned Parenthood? Is this part of the chair's plan to move the language of the party toward center?

    If enacted those laws won't stop abortion.

    I remember working as an aid in hospitals where girls and women came after attempts at self abortion. We got some who hadn't bled to death and others who died of sepsis days after.

    How can we prevent girls and women from wanting an abortion?

    I cannot see myself ever having an abortion; however, I do support the right of a woman to choose. I would much rather a woman choosing abortion would have a safe place to obtain one rather than a self-attempt or back alley abortionist. A woman determined to abort will find a way regardless of legality.

    As for preventing the want of abortion, parents, PCPs, and schools need to step up. Abstinence-only education has been unsuccessful; students need education on STIs and safer sex practices. Parents need to discuss sexual activity with their children, not bury their heads in the sand. PCPs can also educate about STI prevention and safer sex. People need education and to be able to not be shamed/guilted/stigmatized because they are naturally sexual beings.

    Teaching basic science: What causes pregnancy is a start. When the term "sex-ed" is used there are people who still want to believe it teaches people how to have sex (even though they did not have sex-ed and still figured out how to have sex). So teach it as it actually is - Biology 101. If schools start to teach ova, pistils and stamens in early grade school why do we freak when it is changed to mammals rather than flowers and frogs?

    Apparently we are still at the same point with Santorum. I guess he did not get the memo from Texas.
    Rick Santorum’s plan to revitalize the GOP: Defund Planned Parenthood | The Raw Story
    We have a sequester, this has been fought repeatedly. When will they get to look at closing tax loop holes for the rich? When will GE, Facebook, Apple, and the rest start to pay taxes? When will they repeal the stupid get out of jail free card for Monsanto? How will they deal with the oil and tar sands spills?

    PP does not get that much money compared to many other things.

    If people were actually taught biology, this would not be a problem.

    It doesn't matter how much or how little money they get. If a single dime of taxpayer money (read: MY money) goes to support an agency that performs abortions, it's ten cents too many as far as I'm concerned.

    Viva. I do understand your POV. You and I differ on this, and a few other issues. Actually if you changed your sentence to read support Monsanto, the defense contractors who hid money off shore or many other things I hate my tax dollars going to it is the same thing.

    Monsanto is a huge threat to the environment. War filled the pockets of the few rich and kills masses of the not so rich. Don't ever get me started on oil. The amount that goes into each of these that I hate is just as obscene as you find abortions.

    I look at all the people who can be checked for cancer. All the young women, and men who can get correct biological information. Texas found out clearly that funding PP is much better financially and using abortion as the issue was shown to be a smokescreen for more abuse and neglect of women and the medical needs of women.

    At the same time the push is on to continue all the gun insanity we are seeing from the NRA. This organization is solely a gun lobby that has so many good citizens trying to support hunting and avocational uses of guns while the NRA will do any lies to continue to sell more guns. How many thousand have been killed or maimed by guns since December? These deaths were more traumatic to so many than an abortion is. The abortion is between a woman, her HCP, and her Higher Power. Gun deaths each involve so many more lives destroyed and communities changed forever.

    I really don't want to start a fire fight about pro and con abortion. I say all these things to say, "Viva, (and others who are anti- abortion) I understand your view. I do not agree with it, and here are some of my reasons that are not directly related to it from a religious POV. I will not try to change your view of PP, based on your ethical and moral concerns. Please hear that my ethical and moral concerns of other misuses of tax money does not mean I can have my way. That is what the Constitution tells us. We must all give on some issues in order to do the best by our nation."

    I hear what you're saying, AKY, and respect your position as you do mine, even though we are polar opposites on several of these issues.

    But I maintain that unlike Monsanto, oil companies, and the NRA, abortion providers deliberately destroy lives---and innocent lives at that. And I'm sorry, but I just don't see how fouling streams or stirring up the nutcases in the NRA can possibly compare with tearing apart a tiny human being and sucking it out of its mother's womb. I cannot wrap my brain around that concept, and will not go any further with this conversation as I could passionately argue my position all night long, and STILL not change a single mind.

    Peace out~Viva
