I'm opposed to a few things PP does... but i'm not opposed to them existing or doing their thing
i'm opposed to them repeatedly trying to step between parent on their minor children.. and i'm opposed to their ' go forth and **** to your hearts content" philosophy of reproductive health ( that cartoon they put out for kids still sticks in my craw).. i'm opposed to their political hypocrisy ( telling their opponents to keep politics out of it, while engaging in politics themselves)
no one in my family is a customer/patient of PP... we don't use them, we don't need them, we don't support them ( donations or business transactions).. so they are rather irrelevant to us... we have our own doctors
I used to applaud their adoption referrals services.... but they let that side of the business go to hell .. seems abortion pay better.
is there a reason you need a list of their services from me?
the PP fanaticism really intrigues me though... most businesses don't command the type of loyalty that PP gets, 'cept maybe sports teams
I look at it this way. If a state funds any medical organization then they should ALL be funded equally. If a state funds an organization that gives pap smears then the state should fund all organizations that gives pap smears. If they fund an organization that helps with breast cancer then they should fund all organizations that help with breast cancer.
In case you don't understand my point it is simple. If the state funds one organization that provides a particular service then the state should fund them all FOR THAT SERVICE. It is perfectly acceptable to not fund a particular service or to fund specific services. But to ban a whole organization from recieving funds because of one service out of dozens that they provide? That is throwing the baby out with the bath water stupidity and bigotry of the highest order. It's called equality under the law. You know..something that our country is supposedly founded upon.
No state is required to fund abortion and to the best of my knowledge not one single state does. No federal government agency gives money towards it either.
Anti-abortionists have gone utterly stupid banning ANY funds from going towards PP. PP abortion services make up 3% of their total services. And yet help millions of women across the country with a variety of problems...97% having nothing to do with abortion. All that this tells me is that anti-abortionists have the stick shoved up so high that they would rather millions of women have no help with breast cancer or cervic cancer or god knows what else just to save a few clumps of cells.
I have an answer for everything...you may not like the answer or it may not satisfy your curiosity..but it will still be an answer. ~ Kal'Stang
