Today, I was going to post something I’d written about the upcoming Jessica Jones series on Netflix, but I’m pushing that back because I just found out that the House of Representatives passed a vote to defund Planned Parenthood.
They passed this vote because of falsified accusations and propaganda. Because of one group’s narrow view on abortion, money (which did not even contribute to providing abortive services) has been cut off from a health care institution. Because of fear mongering and moral subjectivity, millions of men, women, and children will be without life saving health services.
The federal funds PP received did not go towards performing abortions. These funds went towards things like prenatal care, cancer screenings, pregnancy prevention, general health care, etc.
If you are not pissed off about this, Get. Pissed. Off.
And do something about it. Donate to Planned Parenthood at their website http://www.plannedparenthood.org.
