In case you didn't know... not only is Planned Parenthood a registered non-profit, but rated by independent philanthropist groups as one of the best NPOs in the USA.

So the next time someone tells you Planned Parenthood is just out to make money, tell them to STFU.

Kansas touts state sovereignty in defunding clinic

keepyourboehneroutofmyuterus:

States rights are WAY more important than individual bodily autonomy rights. 

The state of Kansas defended a budget provision which defunded a Planned Parenthood chapter as a matter of state sovereignty, arguing in a court document that a proposed injunction would unconstitutionally replace the state’s discretion with the court’s judgment.

But Planned Parenthood has contended the Kansas statute unconstitutionally imposes additional conditions of eligibility for a federal program that are not required by federal law.

Which argument prevails will help determine whether U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten next week grants the preliminary injunction sought by Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri.

Planned Parenthood, which has received federal funding for the past 25 years, expects the new provision to strip it of about $330,000 in annual funding for its Wichita and Hays health centers that provide services to about 4,720 patients in Wichita and 960 individuals in Hays.

It contends the new law likely will force it to close one or more health centers in Kansas. If the statute is allowed to stand, thousands of patients would face higher costs, less access to services and longer wait or travel times for appointments, the group said.

So. This showed up in my FB news feed tonight...

A video entitled Number One Killer, which claims that Planned Parenthood is the biggest killer of Black Americans, and says that Planned Parenthood performed 363,705 abortions for Black women last year. It conveniently overlooks the fact that Planned Parenthood only performed 332,000 abortions total last year.

For every reblog this gets, I will donate 20 cents to the Knoxville Planned Parenthood center.

(But only for a week. I want to donate, but I’m not made of money lol)

I figured I’d give them a shout-out for what they did for me last week. I had some painful lady issues and because I don’t have insurance, they were the only ones who would see me. Everything’s ok, but they were so awesome and nice and I know funds are running low for them.

SO HAVE IT. REBLOG REBLOG REBLOG. NEXT MONDAY, I’LL CALCULATE AND DONATE.

And if you want to donate to Planned Parenthood as a whole, or to your local center, go to plannedparenthood.org and click on the big “donate” button.

Screen shot of a tweet from @PPNorthTexas: “Last night our McKinney site was attacked–according to police, a glass  bottle w/ diesel & a rag stuck in. Luckily no damage inside.”
On their twitter feed, it was followed by the following two tweets: “Patient & staff safety is our 1st priority—we’re thankful no one  was there when it happened. McKinney police & fire have been great!  We’re open for business today in McKinney, b/c our patients depend on us  & our resolve to serve the community is strong as ever.”

Here we go again.

Pro-life.

Planned Parenthood Clinic Bombed: Whodunit?

CHRISTIAN TERRORISM

What else do you expect from brainwashed sheeple who live every second of their pathetic little lives cowering in fear of some mythical boogieman?

A spokesperson for Planned Parenthood confirmed today that one of their Dallas-area clinics was the target of a violent attack last night. Holly Morgan, director of media relations and communications for Planned Parenthood in Dallas said that at around 11 pm last night, the attacker(s) threw a Molotov cocktail, consisting of diesel fuel in a glass bottle with a lit rag, at the building. “It didn’t penetrate the health center office and none of the staff or patients were there, which is great,” Morgan said.

Two observations:

1) I’m betting the firebomber wasn’t an Islamic extremist. Just a guess.

2) Whoever the attacker is, if he isn’t smart enough to know the difference in flashpoints between diesel fuel and gasoline, he’s probably not qualified to have a say in when life begins.

Pro “life” my ass.

Be very, very wary of anyone who considers people in potentia more important and “human” than the ones who are walking around disagreeing with them. (ETA: Or not, as the case may be. I didn’t mean for that to maybe come across sounding disablist.)

Contact the news websites and local stations about this. Let’s see the news cover pro-life terrorism fairly. If someone threw a molotov cocktail at a Christian church, it would be all over the national news.

“I’m just an average broke college student with loans coming out my ears, and I don’t want to shell out $33 every month for a prescription that I take first and foremost as a relief to the discomfort I experience on a monthly basis due to painful menstrual symptoms, and secondarily as a means of not getting pregnant,” she said.

The State War On Planned Parenthood Heats Up

Don’t forget: These defunding laws aren’t just political rhetoric. They have real-life consequences.
