    I support universal healthcare. However it is wrong to say that those who don't support it don't care about the health of born individuals. That is a fallacious argument.

    Does your health insurance company (or corporate umbrella) also provide money for abortions?

    Not that I know of. Even so, they pay their premiums for a service. My insurance premiums isn't handed to women to have abortions that don't pay in for their own policy. Regardless, that doesn't mean the government should fund a corrupt organization like PP that does offer abortions.

    I believe that the "anti-women" stuff is just rhetoric aimed at justifying hatred from the other side towards those who want to defund PP and are pro-life. In their warped way of thinking people who are against funding PP and abortions want women to die in back alleys or want to oppress womens' rights and want to keep them barefoot and pregnant in some kitchen. In reality, we have our view because we believe abortion is murder, that it's wrong, and that it is the taking of an innocent life. It's a misrepresentation of our views in order to justify hatred for the other side and a sense of self superiority due to the fact that those who want to defund PP just "hate women and are anti-womens' rights."

But you could use that same argument for literally ANYTHING, heck lets say there's a female employee at Boeing who wants to get an abortion, the gov't contracts Boeing to make a new plane, Boeing pays the employee, woman gets an abortion!! Its indirect payment but the money ultimately came from the gov't.
    Or you could compare it to a charity organization that feeds and shelters the homeless in America but also sends money to a terrorist organization.

    I gather I wasn't the only one frustrated during the "almost shut down government crisis."
    I wanted to strangle everyone, including the Republicans in congress and Conservative at Fox.

    Right, because ripping your child's arms and legs off is what every happy nurturing parent would normally do.

    No label you give me could effect the result I desire, so I'm not particularly concerned. If defunding PP makes me "anti-woman" in your eyes, I'm ok with that, because your opinion of me isn't something I cared about in the first place.

    Ya except its entirely not like that at all, because unlike your example the money the gov't gives to PP doesn't go towards abortions. Let me give you another example, women wants abortion, gets a tax rebate, gets her abortion anyway, like she would have if she had gotten no rebates, but the rebate "freed up money for it." Tax rebates cause abortions.

    Just like PP, they are going to provide abortions anyway, and while I agree the federal funds for other things "free up" funds for abortion services unless you can prove that if their federal funding was cut off they would decrease abortion services before any other you don't have an argument. Or to use your example, if we were sending money to a group which feed homeless and funded terrorists, and we cut off their funding, if they choose to just not feed as many homeless we haven't accomplished anything at all, in fact we've created a worse situation.
