|Illinois Lawmakers Double-Down on Stupid: Most Dangerous City in America Considers Even More Gun Restrictions||10 Best Personal Defense Stories of 2012|
Well, at least it’s not all bad news for Conservatives this week. At least not here in Texas (and no, I’m not just talking about Kay Bailey Hutchison casting her final RINO vote ever in the US Senate).
Of course, the ruling is not specific to Planned Parenthood, despite what the media headlines scream. Rather, the ruling prohibits any abortion providers and their affiliates from receiving taxpayer dollars through Texas’ Women’s Health Program. The money isn’t going away, and poor women will still be able to get receive preventive care treatment from other doctors and facilities that do not provide abortion services.
And let’s face it, Planned Parenthood is little more than an abortion factory, with abortion services comprising the majority of their ”services.”
Linda Edwards Gockel, a spokesman for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, said Monday that the new state program will launch as planned on Tuesday.
“We have more than 3,500 doctors, clinics and other providers in the program and will be able to continue to provide women with family planning services while fully complying with state law,” she said. “We welcome Planned Parenthood’s help in referring patients to providers in the new program.”
There are ~300 million guns in this country, which were responsible for ~10K gun-related deaths in the US in 2011. There are only about ~1800 abortion doctors in the country, but they are responsible for about the deaths of about 1.2 million unborn babies in the same year.
But Progressives want to have a conversation on guns?
Only a Liberal could name an abortion factory, “Planned Parenthood!” #CemeteriesRUS
