Well as you ‘focus on the good’, remember your daughters and grand daughters, sons and grand sons are watching.
You are making a bully ‘normal’.
That will last a generation…….
So……..you take away poor people’s health care and then cut the federal budget that would help poor people get birth control, breast and cancer screenings and more.
But there is no Republican War On The Poor.
‘Planned Parenthood estimated that roughly 40 percent of its funding would be at risk should defunding legislation become law’.
‘The group reported receiving $553 million in government funding in 2014, about half of its total revenue’.
‘Republicans plan to strip Planned Parenthood of hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding as part of their rapid push to repeal President Obama’s health-care reforms, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Thursday’.
‘Ryan said a defunding measure would appear in a special fast-track bill that is expected to pass Congress as soon as next month: “Planned Parenthood legislation would be in our reconciliation bill,” he said at a news conference, in response to a question about plans to defund the organization’.
Kentucky will soon own a woman’s body.
‘For the first time in 95 years, Republicans took total control over the Kentucky state government this week and immediately moved to strip rights from women and workers’.
‘According to the Courier-Journal, a 20-week abortion ban is one of the first 11 bills being considered by the GOP-controlled legislature’.
‘Republican Senate President Robert Stivers told reporters on Tuesday that women relinquished their reproductive “choice” by getting pregnant in the first place’.
‘Stivers said that a woman had a…..:
“choice early on to make a decision to conceive or not conceive. But once conception starts, there becomes another life involved. And the legislature has its ability to control how that life may proceed or how it would be terminated,” he stated’.
In short, the Government will take away your ‘right’ to choose.
‘The bill was tacked on at the last minute to another bill addressing child abuse. It was approved in the Republican-dominated state House and Senate, and will now move on to Republican and anti-abortion Gov. John Kasich’s desk. He will sign or veto it within the next 10 days’.
‘Many women do not know they are pregnant until they have missed two periods, which can often be around eight weeks’.
‘Others may find out before the six-week mark, but might still be unable to get an abortion in time because there are a lack of clinics in Ohio and state laws require women wait 24 hours between an informational appointment about abortion and having the procedure done’.
‘The bill was written by anti-abortion and anti-LGBT rights activist Janet Porter (formerly Janet Folger). She authored the book The Criminalization of Christianity: Read This Book Before It Becomes Illegal’!
