War on Women

March 18, 2013

As everyone knows, anti-abortion or anti choice activists are only motivated by a hatred of women and a fanatic desire to prevent women from exercising their reproductive freedom. It should come as no surprise then to see a woman attacked outside an abortion clinic for daring to express her opinion.

It seems I was mistaken about some of the details about this incident. The woman attacked was a pro-life activist who was documenting the arrival of an ambulance at Planned Parenthood to take care of a victim of a botched abortion. Evidently a woman who is either an employee or a client of that esteemed organization took exception to this and decided to physically assault her. A compassionate tolerant liberal no doubt. I wonder who is really leading a war on women, and why Planned Parenthood should get a dime of taxpayer’s money.

Planned Parenthood Spending $1.4 Million for Ads Against

May 30, 2012

They have endorsed Obama, no surprise there, and they plan on spending $1.4 million on a ad campaign against Mitt Romney because he has promised to cut their funding from the government. From Yahoo News.

The political arm of Planned Parenthood officially endorsed President Barack Obama on Wednesday, and simultaneously announced a seven-figure ad buy targeting Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

The $1.4 million television ad campaign, which will run in markets in Florida, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Iowa through June 19, criticizes Romney for pledging to end federal funding for the reproductive health group. Planned Parenthood has long been a target of Republicans because it provides abortion services and access to contraception at its clinics.

The 30-second ad, titled “Out of Touch,” is part of a larger effort to cast Romney as a candidate whose policies would be bad for women, a criticism that Obama and other Democrats have leveled throughout the year.

“Unlike President Obama, what Mitt Romney doesn’t seem to understand is that women’s health issues are economic issues for women and families,” said Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Cecile Richards in a statement. “The fact that Mitt Romney doesn’t understand that shows just how out of touch and wrong for women he really is.”

Considering that a majority of Americans now describe themselves as pro-life, it might be fair to wonder just who is really out of touch. It seems a corrupt business to me. Planned Parenthood gets taxpayer’s money, even though a great many tax payers might prefer that their money not go to an organization that provides abortions. They use some of that money to create an ad campaign in order to be able to continue feeding at the public trough. Maybe we should be asking why Planned Parenthood needs public funding in the first place. If their cause is necessary and good, than surely they would have no trouble raising enough money for their operation through private and voluntary donations.
