    What is this meme about Republicans wanting smaller government that stays out of peoples' lives? It's just a lie. Republicans, as well as Democrats, want the Federal government intruding into the lives of citizens, and the crap going on in Texas is the smoking gun which proves that fact.
    ... interesting. so, in other words, you think that reduction of a government funding is increasing government? do tell.

    WTF are you talking about? Planned Parenthood has done more than FOUR MILLION breast cancer screenings just in the last five years. They also do thousands of cervical cancer screens every year. Their cancer screening budget is five times the size of their abortion services budget.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Breast and Cervical Cancer Screenings - Planned Parenthood - St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri

    Planned Parenthood offers breast and cervical cancer screenings for women at any time. These screenings can also be combined with a well-woman exam (which includes a pap smear and check-up). Should you need it, we will refer mammogram services.

    Yes, Planned Parenthood provides cancer screenings and general gynecologic care, not just family planning services such as contraception and abortions.

    It isn't really a contract when one side can unilaterally change anything and everything about the arrangement as they desire.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
