The American Life League’s newest TV ad opposing our federal safety net program for family planning, Title X, features…a little bunny. Planned Parenthood’s ad focuses on a woman who received life-saving medical care from a Planned Parenhood health center. We’re fighting cute little bunnies now?
I hope Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney puts this in the Congressional Record.
Rep. Jim McDermott, Democrat from Seattle, WA, shares his frustration with the anti-choice, anti-woman rash of “radical extremism” reflected in a host of House bills and proposals.
Today’s bully, or let’s say one of them because there are so many to deal with each day, is Representative Bob Latta, Republican from the 5th District in Ohio. Mr. Latta has introduced an amendment to the GOP’s proposed Continuing Resolution that would eliminate all funding for international family planning. It could be voted on today.
If the GOP push to eliminate Title X is successful, along with their attempts to defund Planned Parenthood, low income Americans in need of family planning services in states like Washington State will have nowhere to go.
I should have been a movie star! YEAH RIGHT!
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s proposed “deficit reduction” bill allows the Department of Health Services to abolish a family planning program that saves nearly $100 million per year in state and federal funding.
The “Protect Life” bill is not a debate; Can an iPhone catch you sinning?; Texas sonogram law moves forward; and Right Wing Watch brings you the men and women taking part in the Planned Parenthood smear and defunding campaign.
As members of the anti-choice Republican and Tea Party House majority debated allowing women to die to salve the consciences of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and using the tax code to virtually eliminate insurance coverage for abortion in the United States, they also took another brazen step by moving to dismantle Title X, the nation’s family planning program.
The March for Life; Florida introduces a bill to bar private insurance coverage of abortion; more good news on Medicaid coverage for family planning; and get yourself a pap test!
