NC Becomes the Third State to De-Fund Planned Parenthood
"We're not preparing to limit the scope of our services or to turn patents away," Paige Johnson, the Vice President of Public Affairs for Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina said on Thursday. "We are preparing to fight this in court and we think we'll prevail - that we'll get an injunction immediately." (source)
Whenever this debate arises, and the left screams about 'family planning' money being stripped from unsuspecting women...and money for pap smears and STD testing down the drain, and I immediately think of dealing with my spoiled pre-teen. The teen that is given many acceptable guidelines yet refuses to compromise/adhere to them. And then tells everyone you "said no."
Planned Parenthood could keep every cent of their entitlements running IF they stopped abortion. They could continue offering contraception, and check ups and testing and educating. Just not the killing part. Seems pretty simple. If they're so concerned about the HPV girl and the teen that can't get condoms anywhere else...why leave them hanging in an 'all or nothing' scenario?
Kind of speaks volumes, doesn't it?
(And how aggravating is that picture...why in the sam hell should NC taxpayers pay for your damn birth control?! Reach into your fake Louis Vuitton and pay for it yourself or don't have sex...)
