This article should be the end of this whole discussion.
Unfortunately, I doubt that a write-up in a medical journal will get as much airplay as the guy with the dead orange tribble on his head or even as much air play as Jeb “my brother didn’t do it” Bush. Would this be called “hot air play”?
Anyway, The New England Journal of Medicine is solidly and squarely on the side of Planned Parenthood.
So am I.
Planned Parenthood probably does more than any other organization in the country to prevent abortions. They dispense birth control and educate people on how not to have unintended pregnancies, the number one cause of abortion.
The nutjobs on the extreme right are not only encouraging more abortions by trying to shut down Planned Parenthood, they are also opposing important medical research for cures to diseases like Parkinson’s.
Further, by making it harder and harder to get to a clinic that will perform an abortion, these shitheads are actually causing more late term abortions. These are also the same wackos opposing real sex ed and replacing it with slut-shaming and abstinence only education.
Don’t be a shithead. Oppose all efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.
Yes, 3% of what they do is actually performing abortions. But, they’re also working to make abortions a much rarer necessity. They’re distributing birth control and educating people about sex.
If abortion is against your religion, A) don’t have one. and B) support organizations that actually reduce the need for them.
